Within the next couple of weeks the highly-discussed needle-exchange program will officially open up in downtown Watertown.

ACR Health, which will run the program, told 7 News the location inside the Franklin Building on Public Square could be open by the end of the month. 
 
The spot, which will have a storefront in the building, is designed is to give people, even drug users, a safe spot to drop off and pick up sterile new needles.
 
ACR Health officials told 7 the goal is to "reduce the transmission of HIV and Hepatitis C."
 
Since it was first proposed, the needle-exchange program has created debate, with some people worried it could create issues for other nearby businesses.
