Guiding Principles of Harm Reduction
According to the Harm Reduction Coalition, the principles of HR are
Acknowledging that drug use is inevitable and choosing to reduce the harms of drug use instead of disregarding them.
Understanding that drug use is a complicated phenomenon and that some methods of drug use are safer than others.
Determining that quality of life is the criteria for successful approaches and rejecting the idea that total abstinence is the only way to address the issue of drug abuse.
Using non-judgmental services and providing resources to people who use drugs and their communities, without forcing them to participate.
Making sure that drug users have a say in the programs and policies of which they are a part.
Seeing drug users as the ones who have control over preventing the harms of drug use and empowering them to share information and support each other.
Accepting that factors such as poverty and racism can impact people’s ability to deal with the consequences of drug use.
Facing the realities and risks of drug abuse.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
