New Harm Reduction Resources

November 01, 2021

New resources to support the use of filters for safer tablet injection are now available, sharing key messages on how harm reduction filters can reduce harms and include instructions on how to use both cotton filters and the Sterifilt Fast filters.

Key Messages

  • Filters remove fillers; they don't steal your drugs.
  • Tablet medications have fillers in them (e.g. coatings and powders). When injected, fillers can cause serious infections, abscesses and damage to the veins, skin, heart, and lungs. 
  • Filters effectively filter some harmful particles from the solution.
  • You can use filters and other harm reduction supplies for safer injection.
