A Recorded Webinar


This program will review some of the basic information on harm reduction treatment with individuals who use substances. Total abstinence is not always the answer, especially in low risk situations and with younger drug users. Understanding that there are alternatives to finding a path to recovery allows clients to open up about their struggles, feeling secure in setting their own goals, and normalizing the relapses that all addiction professions know will occur. This webinar will include recent research findings on clinician acceptance of harm reduction treatment.

Learning Objectives
  • Learn some of the basic principles of harm reduction treatment and how to incorporate this concept into everyday addiction treatment work.
  • Understand the difference between abstinence-based treatment and various alternative methods to recovery.
  • Learn how to incorporate harm reduction into other methods of recovery, such as the 12-step self-help model.
