What is harm reduction?

Harm reduction is an approach to substance use and addiction that focuses on minimizing the potential health and social harm to the person using.

Harm reduction focuses on reducing stigma associated with substance use, allowing people using substances to seek support and get information about lower risk guidelines without judgement.

  • Have concerns about problematic substance use, dependency, or behavioural addiction
  • Need support or referrals to substance use programs, long-term treatment, or specialized services
