Bevel Up Site and Safer Use Education Resource Collection
The NASTAD Drug User Health Team is pleased to announce the release of the Bevel Up website and Safer Use Education Resource Collection
Bevel Up is a comprehensive safer use website for exploring and sharing recommendations on vein care, safer injection, alternative routes of administration, and naloxone and overdose prevention. This resource was developed through the CDC-funded National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center in collaboration with project consultant Heather Edney.
Bevel Up is created for community-based organizations, grassroots programs, health departments, and other groups running or supporting syringe services programs and other harm reduction service providers. Messages and recommendations come from current and former users with experience navigating the unregulated drug supply, health providers, and program staff who serve people who use drugs. In addition to ready-to-use cards, posters, comprehensive topic-specific guides, and social media posts, there are templates and instructions for customizing materials with program information and creating new versions.
Please contact NASTAD's Drug User Health team with questions or suggestions about the site or resources. We look forward to seeing how you use and adapt Bevel Up materials and hope you find them helpful in your work.
