Harm reduction supplies are essential tools and resources provided to individuals who engage in drug use, with the primary aim of minimizing the associated risks and potential harms. These supplies are a fundamental component of harm reduction strategies, which focus on promoting the well-being and safety of individuals, even if they continue to use drugs. One critical aspect of harm reduction is to reduce the negative consequences of substance use, such as overdoses and the transmission of infectious diseases.

At Save Our Families, we are committed to harm reduction, and as part of our efforts to enhance the safety of individuals who use drugs, we provide free harm reduction supplies. These supplies can include:

  1. Naloxone: Naloxone is a medication used to reverse opioid overdoses. It can be administered in the event of an overdose to quickly restore normal breathing and save a life.
  2. Fentanyl and Xylazine Testing Strips: These testing strips are used to check the presence of potentially dangerous substances, such as fentanyl or xylazine, in drugs. These substances are often mixed with other drugs and can be lethal in even small quantities. By testing substances before use, individuals can make more informed decisions about their safety.

By distributing these harm reduction supplies, our goal is to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to stay safe, reduce the risk of harm, and ultimately connect them with support services if they choose to seek help. We believe that harm reduction is an essential approach to addressing the complex challenges associated with drug use and that providing these supplies is a step toward safer practices and healthier outcomes for our community.
