(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%.
