Sonoran Prevention Works is a grassroots group working to reduce vulnerabilities faced by individuals and communities impacted by drug use in Arizona.

We utilize a harm reduction framework to educate Arizonans on overdose response, HIV and Hepatitis C prevention, and stigma. SPW provides capacity-building assistance and trainings to individuals and service organizations, including behavioral health and law enforcement. We recognize drug use as a public health concern that impacts everybody, and we utilize a framework of equity and evidence-based practices to intervene on preventable risks.
