Post by: pogue on February 01, 2022, 05:30:38 PM
I wanted to share with this community a hard reduction guide book I came across in my various searching. It's written in Canada and is more directly to their country and how their operate their much better harm reduction programs than we do, but it still covers the following:

Safer Injecting
Safer Injecting Supplies
Safer Injecting Practices
Needles & Syringes
Sterile Water
Alcohol Swabs
Vitamin C
BZK Wipes

Safer Injecting - How To
Cocaine & Crack Cocaine
Crystal Meth
Prescription Opioids

Safer Swallowing & Snorting
Swallowing or Ingesting Drugs
Snorting Drugs

Safer Inhaling
Safer Smoking Supplies
Straight Stems
Brass Screens
Bowl Pipes
Push Sticks

Safer Smoking - How To?
Crack & Straight Stem
Crack & Foil
Crystal Meth & Bowl Pipe
Fentanyl & Foil

Opioid Overdose
Stimulant Overdose

Disposal of Used Harm Reduction Supplies
Why Harm Reduction
Supplies Can Change
Risks Associated with Using Alternate Items for Injecting/Smoking Drugs
Use of Harm Reduction Supplies for Non-Intended Purposes
Gathering Feedback from Clients About Harm Reduction Supplies
Sample Scripts
Useful Links

The name of the document is Connecting - A Guide to Using Harm Reduction Supplies as Engagement Tools ( and I have it uploaded on my Mega drive for those who would like to check it out. I think it's a great resource and encourage you to share it with friends new to the scene.

So, I hope this guide is helpful for those who need it! Stay safe and test everything you buy with reagents and fentanyl test strips!

I have no idea what is up with the list feature on this forum. First it just said [/list][/list][/list][/list][/list][/list][/list]
