Sure - Canadian Substance Use Resource and Knowledge Exchange Centre

Harm reduction is a way of being that helps people (no matter what their choice is about drug and alcohol use) to reduce risks associated with substance use for themselves, their families and communities. Harm reduction helps restore wellness and ensures that First Nation’s right to good health is possible. Harm reduction is not about making people choose abstinence. It is about ensuring life... it is life promotion without stigma or judgement.
