Welcome to Bevel Up. We're so glad you are here!


Bevel Up is a collection of digital and printable info and guidance on safer use, overdose prevention, and other harm reduction techniques. The content shared here is a compilation of advice and tips shared by experienced drug users, harm reductionists, and medical providers

Materials are organized by topic and include shareable resource cards and posters, deep-dive harm reduction guidance, and related info to help you and your loved ones stay safe. Topics include Vein Care, Smoking with Glass, Smoking with Foil, Booty Bumping, Water Dripping, and Fentanyl + Naloxone.


Sharing info like this helped people stay alive long before syringe access and naloxone distribution got started. There's lots of tried-and-true harm reduction guidance here, as well as info that has been updated in response to increased fentanyl presence, changing routes of administration, and other trends.


With the unpredictable and unregulated drug supply and continuing barriers to resources, learning from shared experience and knowledge can still make a huge difference in your health, safety, and pleasure!

The Bevel Up series was created for community-based organizations, grassroots programs, health departments, and other groups running or supporting syringe services programs (SSPs) and other harm reduction services.


The series content represents priority topics identified by people who use drugs. Messages and recommendations come from current and former users with experience navigating the illicit drug supply, health providers, and program staff who serve people who use drugs. Materials update some long-standing harm reduction practices in response to fentanyl and other analogs in the drug supply.


All materials were peer-reviewed by NASTAD Drug User Health, community members and consultants based around the US, and CDC subject matter experts. All community reviewers were compensated for their time and expertise.
