This film is designed to help people to identify ways to reduce potential harms resulting from injecting. The film is aimed at people who inject heroin (specifically, the brown heroin commonly available in the UK), but many of the steps shown can be applied to the injection of other drugs.
Injecting can never be completely safe and is often very harmful, but taking a few simple steps and practicing good technique can make it a much safer process. Taking these measures can help to maintain veins, reduce soft tissue damage, prevent bacterial/blood borne virus infections and reduce the pain, discomfort and scarring associated with poor injecting.
