Methadone protection

If you inject heroin, methadone treatment reduces the risk of overdose. Heroin injectors who are not in methadone treatment are around 11 times more likely to die than those who are in treatment! Methadone takes a few days to build up in your system at the start of treatment, so don’t expect it to work instantly.

Don’t use out of sight

We need to update the ‘Don’t use alone’ message to one that says ‘Don’t use out of peoples sight’ (to further reduce overdose risk).
