Harm Reduction

Harm reduction is a set of useful ideas aimed at minimizing harmful consequences associated with drug use. Harm Reduction is also a movement for social justice built on a belief in, and respect for, the rights of people who use drugs. It focuses on treating drug abuse as a public health issue, rather than focusing on criminalization and prohibition.

Tampa Bay

May 3rd 2017 Governor Rick Scott signed an executive order declaring a public health emergency in the State of Florida regarding the rising opioid use. We formed in response to this order to service the local community with the harm reduction techniques permitted to us.

HARM REDUCTION

Dozens of peer-reviewed controlled trial publications give support for the effectiveness of damage reduction for a large number of clients and disorders with no indications of induced effects. Harm reduction tactics give further tools for clinicians operating with clients who, for no matter the reason, might not be prepared, willing, or able to pursue full abstinence as a goal.
