Harm Reduction Hacks

Harm Reduction Hacks is the product of a series of 38 qualitative conversations with harm reduction leaders representing every region of the US that took place in the Fall of 2020 and the Spring of 2021.

For Harm Reduction Hacks, two waves of leaders representing every region of the US participated in one-on-one conversations in the Fall of 2020 and spring of 2021. These leaders represented a wide variety of organizational types and structures providing harm reduction services in the US, including stand-alone non-profits, fiscally sponsored projects, horizontal collectives, and programs embedded in both county health departments and larger community-based organizations (CBOs).

This data was then analyzed for themes, practical tips, and other information. That analysis, and the wisdom of people who have between them nearly 500 years of lived experience, are woven throughout the information, tips, and insights in Harm Reduction Hacks.
