Most drug addictions begin through less direct methods of administration like smoking or ingesting the substance. But as dependence increases and addicts seek stronger, faster highs, they often consider or begin abusing drugs such as heroin or cocaine through intravenous injection IV drug use. Most addicts opt for IV drug use for more powerful and immediate effects; few consider or even realize that injecting substances can cause permanent damage and negative health consequences, making it a highly dangerous practice. Among the numerous possible health repercussions of using a syringe to inject substances are infections, overdose, and cardiovascular disease. Skin infections are extremely common in intravenous drug abusers, with 11 percent of intravenous drug users reporting at least one abscess within the past six months. One study estimated that up to 89 percent of injectable substances sold on the street are contaminated with at least one pathogen, often bacteria and fungi, with 61 percent of heroin samples containing , organisms per gram. Contaminants in substances, combined with generally non-sterile equipment and poor hygiene, increase the risk of a possible abscess or skin infection significantly. Sterilizing needles and cleaning the skin before injection can help reduce the possibility of an abscess forming, but these practices cannot prevent the effects of contaminants in the drugs themselves. It is estimated that more than three-quarters of intravenous drug users eventually develop scars in a vascular distribution, with more than half still displaying those scars even after more than five years of sobriety. Endocarditis , a condition characterized by inflammation of the interior lining of the heart, can occur from repeated intravenous drug use.
Drug injection is a method of introducing a drug into the bloodstream via a hollow hypodermic needle and a syringe , which is pierced through the skin into the body usually intravenously , but also at an intramuscular or subcutaneous location. As of [update] , there were A wide variety of drugs are injected, often opioids : these may include legally prescribed medicines and medication such as morphine , as well as stronger compounds often favored in recreational drug use , which are often illegal.

In recreational-use drug culture , preparation may include mixing the powdered drug with water to create an aqueous solution, and then the solution is injected.
When a medication is injected directly into muscle, it is called an intramuscular injection IM. The Z-track method is a type of IM injection technique used to prevent tracking leakage of the medication into the subcutaneous tissue underneath the skin. During the procedure, skin and tissue are pulled and held firmly while a long needle is inserted into the muscle. After the medication is injected, the skin and tissue are released. When you insert a needle into the tissues, it leaves a very small hole, or track. Small amounts of medication can sometimes leak backwards through this track and be absorbed into other tissues. This zigzag track line is what prevents medication from leaking from the muscle into surrounding tissue. The procedure is usually administered by a nurse or doctor. In some cases, you may be instructed how to perform Z-track injections on yourself at home. You may also need the help of a caregiver, friend or family member to administer the injection.
