Safer Use Tips
Here are some tips to use drugs more safely:
- Prep your injection site with alcohol swabs
- Rotate site/veins to keep them healthy
- Inject towards the heart, not away
- After injecting, use some clean cotton or tissue to stop any bleeding and place a bandage over the site
- Don't be alone - use with a friend or let someone know you're using
- Always have naloxone (Narcan) on hand and know how to use it! We always have it available - just ask for some!
