Our number one goal is to help save lives!
HARM:LESS is the harm reduction initiative of Families Against Narcotics. It focuses on reducing the negative consequences associated with substance use disorder and, first and foremost, saving lives. Our HARM:LESS Support Team members meet people where they're at—in parks, on the street, etc.—and help connect them with the essentials they need to stay safe, healthy, relatively comfortable...and alive. In a perfect world, we’d love to see everyone who struggles with addiction seek treatment. But the world isn’t perfect, and we want people who aren’t ready for treatment to know that they matter, too. And that we care about them.
WHAT IS HARM REDUCTION?
According to the National Harm Reduction Coalition, harm reduction incorporates a spectrum of strategies that includes safer use, managed use, abstinence, meeting people who use drugs “where they’re at,” and addressing conditions of use along with the use itself.
