Harm reduction for substance use disorders is sometimes considered to imply agreement with continued use of the substance by people who meet criteria for a substance use disorder. With more education about harm reduction, clinicians can begin to use harm reduction beliefs and strategies to meet their clients where the client is in the present time and move them along the continuum of use toward abstinence. Harm reduction utilizes motivational interviewing and skills from cognitive behavioral and acceptance commitment therapies to assist clients in exploring the reasons for use.

Learning Objectives
  • Define harm reduction as it relates substance use disorders.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic beliefs and strategies of harm reduction models.
  • Apply strategies learned to their own practice.

Education is FREE to all professionals
