    and done other outreach in the past.  Yes, of course its about the needles, but it was also all about initiating contact, establishing trust, and bringing them into other services.

    My favorite outreach was street workers.  Same thing there, the pretext was distributing the condoms, but the real work was assessing other needs and overcoming the resistance to seeking help.
