Answers

1. What is Harm Reduction?

Harm reduction is a non-confrontational and non-judgmental approach that incorporates strategies that aim to reduce the negative consequences of substance use. Harm reduction techniques meet substance users where they are at, addressing what happens when they use along with the use itself. Harm reduction goals are based on a continuum starting with safer use to managed use to abstinence.
