Champaign-Urbana Public Health District

At CUPHD, our Harm Reduction Program provides a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals who use drugs. We offer syringes, education, counseling, and referrals to support overall health and reduce the spread of diseases. Join us in creating a stronger, healthier, and more inclusive community. Together, we can transform lives and empower communities, one syringe at a time.


Narcan (Naloxone) is an opioid antidote. This means Narcan can reverse/stop someone from overdosing on an opioid. Opioids are: heroin, opium, codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and other prescription pain relievers.

We offer free Narcan to anyone who requests it and goes through a brief training on how to use it. Call us for more information - (217) 531-5365Phone (217) 531-5365.
