Critical Harm Reduction Approaches in the Age of the Opioid Crisis

Tuesday, August 14th

7:00pm et / 6:00pm ct / 5:00pm mt / 4:00pm pt

The national narrative around drug use is shifting in the face of the current opioid crisis. How is the current opioid crisis shifting approaches to drug use and in what ways is this crisis reinforcing criminalization, mass incarceration and the militarization of the border? This webinar will give an overview of harm reduction approaches to drug use including overdose prevention, recognition and response. We will discuss the social determinates of health for people who use drugs, including harm reduction informed treatment recommendations. We will move beyond the 'treatment' narrative, and explore the concepts of illegality and innocence within the opioid crisis.
