Abstract

"City" piece on the Portland Needle Exchange, a city program that provides free, clean needles to intravenous drug users. According to Portland Public Health Division director Nate Nickerson, the exchange is, after a brief interruption, again offering a free delivery service to reassure nervous users there would be no police entanglements. The program serves roughly 60 of the estimated 500 to 1,500 intravenous drug users in the Portland area.
