This course is an introduction to examine the core values associated with individuals that teach other individuals to inject drugs.
It will demonstrate how Injection drug users have unique challenges because of additional social stigma, substantially increased risk for infectious diseases, the health consequences of injection drug use, and the addiction to the injection process itself, emphasis on needle fixation describing when people become addicted not only to the drug, but also to the ritual of drawing their drug up into a needle, and the act of injecting it.
