Harm Reduction

May 23, 2023

Harm reduction is a set of ideas and interventions that seek to reduce the harms associated with both drug use and punitive drug policies. For example, using naloxone reverses an opioid overdose. Not sharing needles reduces the risk of contracting infectious diseases. At Drug Policy Alliance, we advocate to expand harm reduction services across the United States.
