Substance Use Disorders: Harm Reduction – Theory & Practical Approaches (Remote)

Substance Use Disorders: Harm Reduction April 24th 12:30pm – 1:30pm 

This session will go over Harm Reduction. Harm reduction is a practical approach that meets people where they are. Harm reduction incorporates public health strategies, including prevention, risk reduction, and health promotion, to empower people who use drugs (and their families) with the choice to live healthy, self-directed, and purpose-filled lives. Harm reduction centers the lived and living experience of people who use drugs.
