The White House at Georgia Harm Reduction

On April 2, 2024, the Georgia Harm Reduction Coalition had the honor of extending a warm welcome to Dr. Rahul Gupta and his esteemed team from the White House Drug Control Policy office. Dr. Gupta serves as the Director of Drug Control Policy. During their visit, they embarked on a comprehensive tour of the Bennett Center, enabling them to immerse themselves in the daily operations of our clinical team. Dr. Gupta departed with a heightened appreciation for the diligent harm reduction initiatives underway in Georgia, subsequently conveying his insights to the President of the United States upon his return.

In the year 2023, the Georgia Harm Reduction Coalition diligently pursued its mission, providing 32,598 units of Narcan to 4,686 Georgia residents. These Narcan distribution efforts resulted in over 800 lives saved from the current opioid epidemic. Additionally, the organization collected 278,106 syringes from the streets and distributed 24,266 pounds of food to the local community, thereby aiding over 6,000 individuals. Through our clinic, we served over 10,000 individuals, enrolled 771 clients in PrEP treatment, and conducted screenings for HIV and STIs for over 3,000 individuals.
