Clark County, Ind. to launch needle-exchange program in Jan. 2017

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Clark County, Indiana, will start a needle-exchange program next month after struggling to find funding.

The program will begin Jan. 26 at a Jeffersonville site that will be open every Thursday. The county health officer says he hopes to eventually have the exchange available two days a week and at other locations.

Clark County didn't have enough money for the program until receiving a grant in October.

Nine of Indiana's 92 counties have been approved for needle-exchange programs.
