Harm Reduction Programs

in New York City

What is Harm Reduction?

Harm Reduction Programs aim to minimize the negative health, social, and legal impacts associated with substance use.

Harm reduction is grounded in human rights and respecting a person’s dignity. It focuses on positive change and working with people without judgment, coercion, discrimination, or requiring that they stop using substances as a precondition of support.

Harm reduction encompasses a range of social services, and evidence-based medical and mental health practices that include, but are not limited to, ​​drug consumption rooms, needle and syringe programs, non-abstinence-based housing and employment initiatives, drug checking, overdose prevention and reversal, psychosocial support, and the provision of information on safer drug use.
