Steroid use and the use of other P.I.E.D.s (Performance and Image Enhancing Drugs) has been on a steady rise in recent years and it’s not just limited to professional athletes or gym goers.

Most pharmacies do not carry the types of injecting equipment needed to reach deep muscle. Much of the information people rely on to design their steroid cycles is coming from online sources, (which may be good or bad) or from a few minutes conversation with the person they bought them from. Peer Based Harm Reduction is concerned that a lot of avoidable damage may be occurring to people, some of who are still at the very start of adulthood.

At Peer Based Harm Reduction we supply a full range of injecting equipment on a one-for-one exchange basis. You can buy the equipment you need from Peer Based Harm Reduction at cost price, or exchange used equipment for sterile new equipment free of charge. Re-using your own injecting equipment can lead to serious bacterial infections. As well as syringes, needles, swabs and puncture-proof disposal containers we have a health clinic. Our Nurse can provide confidential testing for blood borne viruses and sexually transmitted infections and treatment for some infections. The nurse can also provide information to help people keep themselves safe from unnecessary harm and reduce the risk to themselves and those around them as much as possible.

If you are using PIEDs or considering it in the future feel free to call us or come in and have a talk. Peer Based Harm Reduction is here to help you gather all the information and equipment you need to stay as safe as possible. We are non-judgmental, discreet and only interested in your wellbeing.
