Development of Harm Reduction Education Resources for Addiction Treatment Programs at the Dimock Center

Project Location/Site: Dimock Center, Roxbury, Massachusetts
Key Outcomes:
Harm reduction practices can decrease the negative consequences of substance use disorders by meeting patients where they are and by helping to prevent disease, overdose, substance misuse, and even death. Both staff and patients were interested in learning more about harm reduction and were appreciative of these new resources and presentations. Results from this project show that building additional harm reduction educational resources at community health centers is a worthwhile intervention.
