Mingo health department to become harm reduction centerPosted 11/24/21
WILLIAMSON — The Mingo County Health Department will soon be officially recognized as a harm reduction center by the state of West Virginia.
SB 334 established a licensing program within the state Department of Health and Human Resources for harm reduction programs operating syringe exchange programs. All new and existing programs will need to apply to the Office for Health Facility Licensure and Certification. Programs will need support from the majority of the county commission and the majority of the governing body of a municipality.
