Harm Reduction is an approach to policy, programs, services, and education that aims to meet people who use drugs where they are. Harm Reduction practices are proven to reduce the rate of infectious diseases and overdose. It also empowers people who use drugs to seek support for their use, free of judgment or stigmatization at their own pace. Harm Reduction aims to address the root causes of drug misuse and drug dependence, such as trauma, mental health stressors, and genetic and environmental predisposition.
