The Juice Bar

East Riding

The vast majority of people who use image enhancing drugs are not professional athletes but people looking for a healthier and better looking body. The use of such substances is growing and differs from the use of other illicit substances because it is not initially driven by an immediate euphoria, but by the desire to change appearance and performance. Although growing in popularity it can be difficult to get accurate help and advice. Our new service offers free, confidential and accurate advice.

Is it addictive?

Even though anabolic steroids do not cause the same high as other drugs, steroids are reinforcing and so can lead to addiction.

Staying safe

Up to a third of anabolic steroid products are counterfeit or fake.

Is the label not straight? Does it have rough edges?  Are there air bubbles under it? Is the print faded?  Is the liquid cloudy?  Are the levels of liquid different in each amp? If the answer to any of these is YES, it could well be fake, don’t use it.

Be very wary of information on steroids from online sellers and forums, it can often be misleading

Because steroids are often injected, users who share needles or use non-sterile techniques when they inject steroids are at risk for contracting dangerous infections, such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B and C. A study by John Moores University found that 1 in 10 steroid users had been exposed to one or more of hepatitis B, C or HIV. Ask for a test for blood borne viruses.
