The policies and practices of harm reduction are central to our beliefs here at OATR. Harm reduction as it relates to drug use is a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use. Harm reduction incorporates a range of strategies from safer use, to managed use, to abstinence to meet drug users “where they’re at,” addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. Because harm reduction demands that interventions and policies designed to serve drug users reflect specific individual and community needs, there is no universal definition of or formula for implementing harm reduction.
