Welcome to Bevel Up. We're so glad you're here!
Our site is currently under construction.
Bevel Up is a collection of digital and printable info and guidance on safer use, overdose prevention, and other harm reduction techniques.
These resources were created by people who use drugs for people who use drugs, people who love drug users, and any program or entity that serves our community.
Taking into account the increased presence of fentanyl and other analogs in the drug supply, info and recommendations cover topics ranging from vein care to alternate routes of administration.
There are materials for each topic that can be customized or printed out as-is, including resource cards, posters, social media posts, and PDFs with additional detailed info.
The content shared here is a compilation of advice and tips shared by drug users, harm reductionists, and medical providers. Bevel Up resources have been developed to help prevent the spread of HIV, viral hepatitis, and other infections and to prevent drug overdose.
These materials are made possible through the National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center (NHRTAC), funded by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NHRTAC provides ongoing technical assistance and capacity building for state, tribal, and local drug user health programs, building on proven methods of harm reduction TA delivery to provide coordinated assistance to new and established harm reduction efforts, including SSPs and other drug user health services.
Materials were peer reviewed by experienced drug users, NASTAD Drug User Health, and CDC subject matter experts. All community reviewers were compensated for their time and expertise.
