Welcome to episode 23 – This is the second of a four-part series about Harm Reduction.
Last week, Stanton and Zach discussed the history of harm reduction for addiction.

In today’s episode, Stanton wraps up his telling of Harm Reduction History and then talks about harm reduction’s evolution, as a concept, into two incompatible ways of thinking: There is “harm reduction” as the Life Process Program defines it; and then there’s another way of thinking about harm-reduction– namely, that “harm reduction = non-abstinence.”

Stanton and Zach make a clear distinction between the two.

We also have additional articles relating to Harm Reduction on our website.
