Reduce Risk - a Harm Reduction Campaign

Reduce Risk - a Harm Reduction Campaign

It is a simple fact that some people use drugs, and will continue to use drugs. The stance that drugs should be completely banned is both unrealisitc and unhelpful. On top of that, there is no evidence to support that completely banning substance use on a policy-level actually helps reduce use and risks associated with use in the general population. 

Harm reduction focuses on minimizing risks associated with drug use, acknowledging that some people undoubtedly use and will continue to use drugs and illicit substances. 

We have provided some specific information and harm reduction techniques on common addictions:

Safe Drinking

Self Harm

Safe Injection Strategies

Opioids and Naloxone
