We’re a statewide grassroots organization, dedicated to implementing harm reduction interventions, public health strategies, drug policy transformation, and justice reform in North Carolina.
We engage in grassroots advocacy, resource and policy development, coalition building, and direct services for anyone impacted by: drug use, incarceration, sex work, overdose, gender discrimination, and/or their HIV and/or Hepatitis status. We provide technical assistance and education to local law enforcement, public health departments, and provider communities so that we can bridge the gap from provider to participant.
We believe that the key to bringing our participants closer to prevention and health services is to treat every person, regardless of their circumstance or condition, with dignity and respect.
Our nonjudgmental approach allows our participants to move through self-discovery and self-empowerment at their own pace. We raise the health index of the community by developing relationships based on honesty and our educational pieces of training and programs help our staff assist our participants to live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
What is Harm Reduction?
Harm reduction refers to a range of public health policies designed to reduce the harmful consequences associated with drug use, sex work, and other high-risk activities. Harm reduction is an alternative and, in some cases, a complement to the more conventional demand and supply reduction approaches.
