Southwest Recovery Alliance Inc.
Southwest Recovery Alliance focuses on overdose prevention and HIV/HCV prevention by encouraging the use of harm reduction.
We are Southwest Recovery Alliance based in Phoenix, Arizona. Our mission is to prevent further transmission of diseases like Hepatitis C and HIV through harm reduction. Giving out lifesaving supplies and doing street outreach is an exceedingly small portion of what we do, although detrimental in making hard-to-reach, criminalized, and stigmatized populations accessible to us. One of our most crucial functions is serving as an access point for the many direct services we and our community partners provide. Naloxone administration certification is available onsite ensuring everyone receives the appropriate information and skills needed to combat the highly preventable deaths occurring daily in Arizona. For those who want to learn more about overdose prevention and HCV/HIV transmission, more in-depth trainings are offered virtually and in-person. One major driving factors in reaching at-risk populations is to make overdose in Arizona obsolete. The only way to accomplish this is by spreading awareness and promoting harm reduction strategies. Additionally, Hepatitis C and HIV transmission rates lower dramatically when people implement the habitual use of sterile tools and proper resources of educational value are readily available. This is where we come in: this is what we pledge to do every day for our community. We provide the tools to educate people on how to prevent an opioid overdose which is a current epidemic in Arizona, not to mention the whole US. The most common way Hepatitis C is transmitted is through shared syringes. We provide free syringes to people who come to our sites during the week. We also have an assortment of other tools needed for people to stay safe and prevent further transmission. Naloxone (Narcan) is given out to anyone who wants and needs it. We are 100% funded by donations. We give people the opportunity to donate at all of our outreach sites and platforms like every.org. All donations go strictly to purchasing the supplies that have been played a crucial role in keeping hundreds of our participants disease-free for almost three years. We value our participants as human beings who love and are loved just like anyone else in the world. We want everyone to feel comfortable in making healthier decisions and our services play a huge role in that. We thank you for taking the time to consider showing your support of our efforts to fight the opioid crisis.
