Needle exchange program ‘success’ so far

The Northern Kentucky Health Department is seeing success more than two months into its first-ever needle exchange program  in Grant County.
The program, which began March 16, operates from 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Grant County Health Center at 234 Barnes Rd. in Williamstown.
The goal of the program, which allows participants to exchange dirty, heroin-tainted syringes for clean needles, is to halt the dramatic rise of hepatitis C cases in northern Kentucky during the heroin epidemic.
