If you are using injection drugs, use a clean needle. Injection drug use is responsible for approximately 10% of HIV cases annually, and use of injected drugs also increases your risk of other diseases like Hepatitis C.^3^ The only way to be truly safe is to always use new needles, directly out of the package from a trusted source. The following links show where you can exchange used needles for new ones in Alaska. http://www.alaskanaids.org/index.php/prevention/syringe-exchange https://www.interioraids.org/ If you are seeking treatment for substance abuse, contact a medical provider or locate a treatment center nearest you at https://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ To learn more about Naloxone, including how it can reverse the effects of opioids and where it is being distributed, visit http://dhss.alaska.gov/dph/Director/Pages/heroin-opioids/narcan.aspx For more information on how to get help, visit http://dhss.alaska.gov/dph/Director/Pages/heroin-opioids/help.aspx [[br]][[br]] ---- {{class .SmallerFont 3.
