In 2020, 93,000 people in the United States died from a drug overdose. It doesn’t have to be this way. Much of the harm traditionally associated with drug use isn’t because of the drugs themselves, but how we have decided to treat people who use drugs. Harm Reduction is a philosophy and a strategy firmly rooted in a belief in the fundamental dignity and worth of every person. While Harm Reduction isn’t a religious practice, many of the underlying beliefs and commitments are deeply resonant with the foundational beliefs of the Christian tradition as well all major religions.
Join this training to learn more about how the values of Harm Reduction and faith traditions go hand in hand. You’ll hear from expert practitioners as well as those whose lives have been saved and changed by this important work.
