Cannabis-for-Harm-Reduction

July 2016 Webinar

This Month’s Webinar: Cannabis for Harm Reduction

Harm reduction is an approach to addiction treatment that offers an alternative to abstinence-based programs. Harm reduction operates on the idea that lives can be improved and perhaps saved by substituting a less-harmful substance for one that is more dangerous to the substance user and those around them.

With no lethal dose, and a variety of pain-relieving and possibly euphoric properties, cannabis can be a valuable harm reduction tool for those struggling with alcohol and drug dependencies. Learn more about the history, benefits and drawbacks of a harm reduction approach to addiction that views cannabis as a gateway to improved quality of life.
