Episode 45 – Abstinence Versus Harm Reduction

Episode 45 – Abstinence Versus Harm Reduction

Some nuggets from this episode

A conversation between Chris and Paul Garrigan

In this episode of the podcast, we discuss the differences between harm reduction and abstinence as approaches for dealing with addiction. Here at Hope, we believe that abstinence offers the best solution for those struggling with addiction issues, but is there a place for harm reduction? Some might say that harm reduction ‘enables’ those abusing drugs to keep doing what they are doing, but there is a strong argument for why this approach saves lives and can lead people eventually to abstinence.
