ABOUT

Strategies to Overcome Obstacles and Avoid Recidivism (SOOAR), has developed an innovative mobile health program concept called Boots On The Ground (BOTG) harm reduction, the first program in Wayne County, outside the City of Detroit, which aims to expand access to harm reduction services through mobile health and community empowerment.

Our mobile harm reduction program will provide low-threshold, low barrier harm reduction services aimed at increasing access to education, support and public health equipment. 

 

We believe access to compassionate, accurate, high-quality services should be available to everyone. SOOAR provides safe spaces in Out-Wayne County where anyone can receive the care they need without fear of judgment, stigma or discrimination.

 

All of SOOAR’s Harm Reduction services are free, confidential and available on a walk-in basis. 

 We do not report to police or immigration.
