Harm Reduction (HR) has been a dirty word in traditional substance use treatment for many years. While Medications As Treatment (MAT) has changed much of that, MAT is not the only HR strategy used in treating SUD’s and even it is still controversial in many agencies, let alone 12-Step support groups. Using HR in SUD works is a collection of skills borrowing from psychotherapy, public health, counseling, coaching, and more. And it is as transforming as well. Recently, the long-held motto of harm reduction has changed- from “meeting people where they are at” to “meeting people where they are at and not leaving them there.” What has not changed is the client-centered focus at the core of all of harm reduction strategies. One favorite motto of those of us working in harm reduction is “Any positive change” (Chicago Recovery Alliance) meaning we measure successful outcomes not from an “abstinence-only” position, but from “any change in the direction of better health,” which is in keeping with SAMHSA’s own terms, and includes some skill-building in HR strategies, and more. *Please Note: This training does NOT fulfill the requirement for ASAM Criteria Skill Building. This training is meant to be taken as a supplemental course
