ABOUT US

OnPoint NYC vigorously advocates for social justice and strives to address adverse outcomes among people who use drugs or engage in sex work by providing the resources, tools, and support they need to enhance the quality of their lives and live with dignity. We seek to combat stigma and invite people who use drugs to participate meaningfully in society, instead of pushing them to the margin.

Services

As the largest harm reduction service provider on the east coast, we offer lifesaving safer drug use and overdose training to those who need it most. We also distribute and clean up more syringes and other paraphernalia than any other provider. 

Drop-in Centers

Our Drop-In Centers (DIC) are no-barrier, walk-in spaces at both locations, East Harlem and Washington Heights, where we offer coffee, snacks, showers, bathrooms, and laundry.

Harm Reduction Services

We provide syringe exchange, safer drug use supply provision, education, and counseling to reduce the potential harms associated with drug use and needle-sharing.

Overdose Prevention Centers (OPCs)

We made history and became the first organization in the US to open two OPCs that monitor drug consumption on-site in East Harlem and Washington Heights.

Health & Wellness Services

We offer an array of in-house clinicial services including HIV and Hep-C testing, wound care, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), including buprenorphine, medical assessments, and counseling.

OUTREACH & PUBLIC SAFETY

We operate a hotline, (718) 415-3708, for community members to report syringe litter or public drug use. Our staff dispatches a team to clean up the area and to help divert public use. We also educate our community members on harm reduction, overdose prevention, and other services.

Supportive Services

We have teams of case managers at both of our locations who conduct mental health services, benefits navigation, advocacy, health navigation, case conference sessions with various providers, drug education groups, individual counseling, and modalities for safer drug use.

Overdose Interventions

Overdose Prevention Centers (OPCs)

On November 30, 2021, we made history and became the first organization in the United States to open two Overdose Prevention Centers (OPCs) in East Harlem and Washington Heights. 

The program is designed to reduce overdose death and other health risks associated with drug use, and to promote lasting connection into care. Further, the OPCs seeks to significantly reduce instances of public drug use and syringe litter in parks and public spaces. The overarching goal is to promote safety, wellness, and dignity for participants of the program and the larger community where these programs operate.

Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram.
