NESI – Needle Exchange & Safer Inhalation (Gear, Van & Outreach)

In order to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted this service. We have temporarily closed the NESI Drop-in space and shifted our focus to outreach and van services.  We have gear distribution outside of 55 Eccles Monday - Sunday from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm, or you can contact the NESI van at 613-761-0003.

NESI offers harm reduction services for people who use drugs, including safer inhalation and injection supplies, collection and disposal of used equipment, and peer support in a non-judgmental environment.

Stop by the NESI drop-in room at the Eccles Branch or call the NESI van to have supplies delivered!
