Safer Substance Use: Tips for Reducing Risks and Staying Healthy
Using substances like drugs can have serious health risks, but there are steps you can take to practice safer use. One important step is to avoid sharing equipment, such as needles or pipes, to reduce the risk of infections like HIV and hepatitis.
It's also a good idea to use substances with someone you trust, start with a low dose, and take breaks as needed to avoid overuse and reduce the risk of harm. By practicing safer substance use, you can help protect yourself and others while still enjoying the effects of the substance.
Take control of your health and practice safer substance use today! Remember to never share equipment, carry naloxone, and use safer sex supplies. For more information and support, visit SafeLink Alberta.
