This videoconference session will build participants’ understanding of substance use as a multi-faceted and complex human behavior. Knowledge of the underlying reasons for substance use will improve understanding of how stigma affects the quality of life for people who use substances and their loved ones. We will discuss harm reduction as a culture, its principles, practices, and services. A review of evidence-based benefits of harm reduction interventions will be provided, along with addressing some myths and facts around harm reduction. At the end of this presentation, participants will feel more confident advocating for harm reduction services in their communities and learn key tools to help adapt harm reduction to meet their community’s unique needs.
