What is Harm Reduction?
Fundamentally, harm reduction is about bodily autonomy and unconditional support for people who use drugs.
Decades of research show that harm reduction increases public health and wellbeing, without increasing drug use, violence, or crime.
Harm reduction is essential. A harm reduction approach to drug use is the best strategy we have to end the overdose crisis, reduce risks associated with drug use, and affirm the dignity and bodily autonomy of every New Jerseyan.
