Harm reduction practices in the addiction recovery field are often misunderstood and carry a stigma with them. Professionals who work in these .. Read more programs know their value, but more traditional addiction professionals often think of harm reduction practices as being “enabling” or being undermining of “real recovery.” Harm reduction, however, is grounded in theory and practices that help people to get better and reduce the problems associated with the use of substances. This training will review the grounded theories and practices that make harm reduction implementable in any environment and will encourage addiction professionals to increase openness to these practices.
