Description: The Staying Safe app was created through a collaboration with the National Development and Research Institutes for IV drug and opioid users. Designed to decrease the risky behaviors associated with IV drug use, the app provides science-based tips to avoid Hepatitis C virus and HIV infections as well as overdoses. Rather than shame or alienate the individuals who use drugs, the app seeks to decrease the risks associated with drug use.
