HARM REDUCTION

Harm reduction is the philosophical foundation of the treatment approach at our clinic. The Harm Reduction Coalition describes harm reduction as,

” a set of practical strategies that reduce negative consequences of drug use, incorporating a spectrum of strategies from safer use, to managed use to abstinence. Harm reduction strategies meet drug users ‘where they’re at,’ addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. “

 

Medication Assisted Treatment is harm reduction.
