2020-09-24 Health – Harm Reduction Story

“What they call prohibition doesn’t work. That doesn’t work. It’s never worked. And the money can best be used providing services, harm reduction treatment centers, and medicated assisted treatment. A lot of people have been raised on the abstinence model 12 step abstinent space model. But it doesn’t really serve the people who are still in active addiction and need a little help. They need a little coaching need a sympathetic ear and somebody to talk to to help them get over the rough time that you’re going through. So Harm Reduction is that.”
