NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene created a pamphlet which contains 10 tips for safer use of intravenous drugs. Hopefully such instructions are not needed but lets be realistic. For many drug abused people this can be a important source of information. The pamphlet consists of ten tips and here they are: 1. Prevent overdose, 2. Treat overdose, 3. Don’t share, 4. Use new syringes, 5. Prepare drugs carefully, 6. Take care of your veins, 7. Know you HIV status, 8. Get tested and treated for hepatitis, 9. Get help for depression, 10. Ask for help to stop using
