Rockland Connects


Connecting the Rockland community to care, support and education around safe drug use.

 

Rockland Connects is a movement to improve the lives of people who use drugs, and those who care for them, in Rockland County. By leveraging evidence-based harm reduction approaches, we provide education on how to reduce the harms of drug use and protect oneself from HIV, hepatitis C and fatal overdose.
