(Richmond, IN)--The frequency with which Wayne County drug addicts can get free, clean needles is increasing from once a month to once a week. Participation in the program has steadily increased since its inception last August. Beginning next week, addicts can get needles every Thursday at the Centerstone facility on North 13th. A large federal grant is being sought to help offset the cost of the program. Addicts are now returning used needles at a rate of 89%.
