Harm Reduction Center: Las Vegas
Trac-b Exchange currently has 5 harm reduction vending machines in Las Vegas. These vending machines are the first and only of their kind in the United States. Anyone 18+ with some form of ID can come into Trac-B Exchange (6114 West Charleston Blvd, 89146) and sign up for a vending machine card, or at any of the 5 locations:
Huntridge Family Clinic: 1830 East Sahara Avenue, 89104
The Gay & Lesbian Community Center: 401 S Maryland Parkway, 89101
Center for Behavioral Health: 3050 E Desert Inn Road #116, 89121
Center for Behavioral Health: 3470 W. Cheyenne Ave. #400, North Las Vegas, 89032
TIM Care: 916 W. Owens Ave., Las Vegas, 89106
Everything in the vending machines is free, and participants will have their own unique card/pin number. Participants can access the following: 1 box of 30 syringes (once per week), sharps box, 1 Naloxone kit (once per month), hygeine kits, first-aid kits, pregnany tests and safer sex kits. Be sure to check the hours of the five locations; they are different than Trac B Exchange's hours. The vending machines are convenient and discrete- participants can go in and out of the building and obtain their supplies without having to speak to anyone, and every location has a large sharps container for syringe returns.
