Safe Injection

Rotate your spot! When you stick a needle in your skin, it leaves a hole that has to heal. The same is true with your veins! You can keep your veins in good shape if you let the spot heal before you hit on it again.

For more information, check out our pamphlet on Safe Injection.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a progressive disease which frequently has few or no symptoms and can progress without signs for decades. Most patients with chronic hepatitis C are asymptomatic until serious liver complications arise.

For more information, check out our pamphlet on Hepatitis C.

 

Naloxone / Narcan

Always act! Narcan saves lives! Even if you’re not sure if someone is overdosing, act like their life depends on it. It does! Call 9-1-1, administer naloxone, and perform rescue breathing. Don’t ever leave someone alone!

For more information, check out our pamphlet on Naloxone / Narcan.
