Tooting Versus Shooting (and other routes and methods of drug use)

  • Demonstrate an understanding of why people move to injecting drug use and the barriers to returning to less risky methods of drug use.
  • Demonstrate increased confidence in their ability to raise the conversation topic of route transition.
  • Describe in detail different methods of drug use.
