Implementing Harm Reduction Practices in Peer Recovery Organizations

February 23, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Instructor: Regina Ford, MA

Harm reduction incorporates an array of evidence-based and informed strategies ranging from safer use to abstinence to address conditions of use along with the use itself. The purpose of this workshop is to provide governments, non-governmental organizations, medical providers, and affected communities the essential skills needed to develop and sustain successful strategies that address the needs of drug users and other vulnerable groups. Participants will learn harm reduction terminology, definitions, and philosophies and explore the history of harm reduction and criminalization of drugs. This seminar will explain the foundations and benefits of harm reduction approaches and their strategies to reduce harm, risks, and further complications from drug use for the individual and the community. The seminar will dispel some common myths of harm reduction and the continuum of substance use (SUD) treatment and recovery. Attendees will understand harm reduction principles and services and define what it means to “practice” harm reduction.
