The Peer Support &

Harm Reduction Connection

Peer Support and Harm Reduction go hand in hand. The current trends in Opioid use necessitates the implementation of Harm Reduction philosophies into our Peer Support Services.


As Peers, many of us have had experience with Opioid use whether personally or peripherally. We understand the struggles, the feelings, and the consequences, but most importantly, many of us have learned how to minimize the harm brought about by Opioid use through the experiences of ourselves and others.
