To The Point

To The Point
Film Location: 
Philadelphia, PA

Since its 1991 inception, Prevention Point Philadelphia has illegally conducted syringe exchanges, a safer alternative to the war on drugs. To the Point documents this program committed to protecting the health and rights of habitual drug users and sex industry workers. It looks at on-site medical care and health care information sessions. Some contend that needle exchange encourages drug use, yet in areas with needle exchange sites, drug use has not increased, and the spread of HIV has decreased.
