One of the outcomes of the current opioid epidemic is an increased rate of intravenous (IV) drug use — meaning directly injecting opioids or other substances into a vein. It’s a practice that layers risk on top of risk. Yet unfortunately, simply knowing the risks isn’t an effective deterrent, nor a bridge to addiction treatment.

As the parent or caretaker of someone struggling with opioid use (including heroin, fentanyl and most prescription pain relievers), it’s important to understand how and why IV drug use may become a factor. This video will help you better understand how to spot early warning signs of IV use.
