Do you know the real stories of people who inject or use drugs? The fear and stigma around drug use often means that people who use drugs struggle to be accepted and to access the health care and social equity the rest of us take for granted. Mandy Nolan and Dr George Catsi follow the personal and untold stories of people who inject drugs. We give a voice to their lives and circumstances, looking behind the stigma. Most of what we hear around drug use, and particularly people who inject drugs comes from the media, and it’s deeply etched with stereotypes and impacts on people’s lives and their access to employment, family and personal relationships. We’re so grateful to these 9 storytellers for having the guts to give this a go. Daily Dose is an Authentic You Media production in collaboration with North Coast HIV and Related Programs, also known as North Coast HARP. Jointly funded by North Coast HARP and NSW Ministry of Health in Australia.
