Kalamazoo Harm Reduction
COPE is the fiduciary for Kalamazoo Harm Reduction, a program that distributes free harm reduction equipment like clean syringes to participants. Click here to learn more.
We distribute free Naloxone (Narcan) kits that can be used to reverse opioid or heroin overdoses. We also do free one-on-one, group, or organizational trainings on overdose prevention.
Our executive director Nancy King is a licensed Recovery Coach, Trauma Recovery Coach, and a certified ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences Study) trainer. Click here to learn more about her services.
Please see events page for up-to-date meeting information and updates. During COVID, some of our programs now take place online.
Unless marked otherwise, all of our programs are accepted by the Kalamazoo Drug Court. This means participants in a drug court program can get their papers signed for participation in classes like yoga and guitar just as is done at NA or AA. For more information, click here.
Community support is important to our work at COPE. There are many ways you can get involved, and every bit that you contribute goes a long way in helping us fulfill our mission.

We are always looking for donations of instruments, arts & crafts supplies, clothes, furniture, housewares, camping supplies, and other miscellaneous items, either for use in our facility, for use by our participants, or for our annual garage sale fundraiser.

*We are a licensed non-profit 501(c)(3) and donations to us are tax deductable.
If you or someone you love is struggling with substance use disorder and you are concerned for them or seeking support for yourself, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
At COPE we are a community of people with lived experience as well as families and friends of people affected by substance use. We are happy to help any way we can.
