The Intersection of Harm Reduction, Prevention, and Recovery - Part 1
The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence in collaboration with the PTTC Network is hosting a 2-part webinar series on the Intersection of Harm Reduction, Prevention, and Recovery.

This webinar series will illustrate the common goals within the fields of prevention, recovery, and harm reduction such as: reducing the adverse health and social consequences of chaotic substance use, demonstrate the multiple points of intervention across the spectrum of substance use, and how to develop coordinated strategies at individual and community levels to address chaotic substance use. Throughout the webinar, we will be taking a close look at how race and social determinants of health influence the frequency, access, and type of services provided to diverse populations.

Learning Objectives:

• Describe the intersections between prevention, recovery, and harm reduction approaches
• Define common terms used in prevention, recovery, and harm reduction
• Develop specific ways in which prevention, recovery community, and harm reduction practitioners can better support one another
