Helpful Tips

  • Injecting is the most complicated and risky way to do drugs.  Snorting, smoking or swallowing drugs are all safer than injecting.
  • Aseptic Injection is a way of injecting that reduces the risk of getting an infection from injecting.  Aseptic injecting helps to avoid becoming infected with Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV.
  • The basic idea is that no blood gets transmitted from one person to the next.
  • Using a sterile syringe is not enough to avoid diseases, as they can be spread by very small amounts of blood. This means it is important not to share, syringes, filters, water, swabs, cookers or tourniquets.


Safer Injecting Means

Never sharing:

  • Don’t share your needles, water, cookers, filters, or tourniquets.

Keeping it sterile:

  • Swab surfaces, your fingers, and the injection site before injecting.

Safe disposal:

  • Always place sharps in a hard walled container, and return it to your local needle syringe program.

Safer Injecting

Safer Crack smoking

Safer Crystal Meth smoking


 Needle Syringe Programs Help

  • Needle syringe programs are helpful in modifying many risk related practices of injection drug use (for example reusing and sharing needles).
  • The recovery of needles helps control the unsafe disposal of needles in the community (for example playgrounds, washrooms) and reduces the risk of blood-borne infections.


Our Goal

  • To reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and other blood borne infections by providing sterile needles and supplies to people who use drugs.
  • To prevent fatal overdose.
  • To connect people with community supports and resources.
