YOUR HARM REDUCTION CHEAT SHEET

Alcohol and Other Drug Harm Reduction

The only way to eliminate potential harms of alcohol and other drugs is to abstain from using them, harm reduction is the act of reducing potential harms while continuing to use these substances. Come and chat to Dancewize NSW NSW, next to medical, for more info on how you can stay safe while you party.

Harm Reduction Strategies

1) Research substances and their effects

Jump on Erowid.org before the festival or come and chat to the crew at Dancewize NSW at the festival for non-judgemental information and advice on a huge variety of substances.

2) Avoid dangerous drug combinations

The effects of alcohol and other drugs can be unpredictable when you mix them. It’s important to be aware of which combos are more dangerous. This also goes for medications that may be prescribed. Check out this chart, and chat to Dancewize NSW to find out more.

3) Plan your party day

Plan ahead to reduce potential harms when partying. If you’re planning to use alcohol or other drugs, set a limit of how much you plan to use, and stick to it.

4) Surround yourself with trusted mates

Partying is always better with good mates around you. Check in with your mates to make sure they’re doing okay. Make sure you each know what the others have taken, and don’t be afraid to pull your mate up if you think they’ve had enough.

5) Don’t buy drugs from unknown sources

If you choose to use illicit drugs, make sure you can trust your source to tell you about strength and purity. It’s a good idea to test your stuff, if you have a test kit.

6) Avoid using alcohol and other drugs if your mood is low or you’re feeling unwell

Your mood and physical wellbeing have a massive impact on the way any substance will affect you. It’s not a good idea to try to use alcohol or other drugs to lift your mood if you’re feeling down – they could make it much worse.

7) Driving

Plan a safe way to get home from the festival. If you’re going to use any kind of drug, including alcohol, check the bus and train timetables, or make sure you have money for a cab. If you’re partying a long way from home, find alternative accommodation like a mate’s couch or a hotel room. Never drink/drug drive.

8) Eat, rest, hydrate

No matter whether you choose to use substances or not, a big day partying in the sun is going to take it out of you. Make some time between acts to have a rest and get some food. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking half a litre of water per hour while dancing, and about half that when resting. There’s free water at the bars, free water stations and Dancewize NSW.

9) Love safe & Safe Space

Sometimes you meet new friends when you’re out partying, and alcohol and other drugs can influence your decision making. If you’re hooking up with someone, make sure they’re as keen as you are – seek enthusiastic consent. Condoms and other safer sex resources can be picked up for free from Dancewize NSW.

If you ever feel unsafe or you need support, speak to a security guard or come to Dancewize NSW next to the medical tent. We will provide a safe space for you to talk, or not talk, about your experience. We’re here to help.

WHAT FACTORS INFLUENCE A DRUG EXPERIENCE?

Drug: chosen drug, purity, legality, amount of drug, combinations with other drugs (including alcohol), etc.

Individual: health of person, mental state, mood, weight, age, etc.

Environment: temperature, day/night, loud music, friends around, crowds, presence of police, familiarity of location, etc

AMNESTY BINS: BE SMART – BE AWARE

NYE in the Park are working closely with NSW Health, we will be rolling out amnesty bins at the event to help ensure the safest possible festival for all.

SAFE WORD – ASK FOR ANGELA

NYE In The Park will have ‘Ask For Angela’ in place at the festival.

Who is Angela and why should I ask for her?

The NSW Government begun trailing the internationally recognised “Ask For Angela” safety campaign in Sydney’s CBD, hoping to prevent sexual assaults the city in July 2018.

It encourages patrons to approach any staff member at participating venues and “Ask For Angela” if they feel unsafe or have been put in a compromising situation. The sentence acts as a code to discreetly alert staff, who then escort the affected person to safety or contact authorities for further assistance.

Ask for Angela sends a message that creepy behaviour will not be tolerated and that nobody has the right to make anyone else feel threatened in any way. If you or your mates experience any creepy behaviour, you too can ‘Ask For Angela.’
