Hepatitis SA runs four Clean Needle Program (CNP) sites at Hackney, Noarlunga, Port Adelaide, and Salisbury, as well as a syringe vending machine at Hackney. Our CNP Peers also attend rostered sessions at other sites at various times during the week.
Hepatitis SA CNP sites are located at Hackney, Noarlunga, Port Adelaide, and Elizabeth. All operate during normal office hours and stock a full range of free needles and syringes, plus water and filters for sale. We also operate a 24 hour syringe vending machine at Hackney, which dispenses clean needles at a cost of $2 per pack.
Hepatitis SA's CNP sites at Noarlunga, Port Adelaide and Salisbury are fully staffed by peer workers who have personal experience and knowledge around injecting drug use and also have up-to-date knowledge on hepatitis B, hepatitis C and other blood borne viruses.
The CNP peer educators are also available regularly at other CNP sites in metropolitan Adelaide including at the Hepatitis SA premises at Hackney.
