Harm Reduction and Overdose
What is Harm Reduction?
Harm reduction means reducing the possible harm from activities humans do every day. As an example, wearing a seatbelt in a car or a helmet when bicycling. Seatbelts and helmets won't protect us 100% of the time, but they do reduce the risk for injuries or death.
What is an overdose?
Defined as too great a dose; a lethal or toxic amount. Or simply, taking too much of something – beyond the toxicity level.
