hand up health servicesHAND UP Health Services comprises a diverse group of volunteers delivering free, community-based services that reduce the personal and social harms associated with drug use. We are a Syringe Services program of the New Hampshire Harm Reduction Coalition operating in Strafford and Rockingham counties and the surrounding area.

HAND UP supports people to make any positive change in their lives and to reduce the risk of drug overdose, HIV/HCV and other viral and bacterial infection, and other harms associated with the drug use and misuse. We reach people through direct outreach and by referral from health care and other service providers and peers in the community. Our services are confidential; we do not collect or share identifying information about anyone we serve.
