Harm reduction: treatment and recovery

Harm reduction can be part of the treatment and recovery journey. Harm reduction often acts as a connection point for people who are curious about treatment. It presents options that support people who use drugs with respect for autonomy and identity. Whether that person is someone who: finds a treatment program they like, accesses sterile syringes, learns about naloxone (Narcan) and overdose prevention, or someone who simply stops in for a handful of condoms and lube – they have taken a step toward better health on their terms.
