What We Stand For

Harm Reduction Ohio is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports drug policies based on science, health, compassion and human rights. We strive to:

  • reduce the harms associated with drug use and drug policy.
  • empower drug users to care for themselves and one another.
  • promote health equity through compassionate, nonjudgmental services.
  • educate the public, policymakers and medical community about treating drug users with respect and without stigma.
