NYC heroin pamphlet — is it a help or a how-to guide?

New York (CNN) — A pamphlet designed to help heroin users with advice has come under fire, with some now questioning whether the public health brochure can actually be used as a how-to guide on drug use.

While concerns over the 16-page pamphlet have arisen in recent days, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene created its “Take Charge, Take Care: 10 Tips for Safer Use” brochure in 2007. Its purpose, according to a statement from the department, is “to help people who are injecting drugs reduce the harm associated with this type of drug use until they are able to get into treatment and recover.”
