Harm Reduction Specialist
The Harm Reduction Specialist provides engagement and support services, particularly to program participants around drug and alcohol use, sexual health, and self-harm, using a harm reduction model. The emphasis is on meeting individuals “where they are at” and providing non-judgmental, non-coercive services and resources to individuals. In addition, the Harm Reduction Specialist provides consultation, training, and support to program staff in their work with program participants engaging in behaviors perceived to be risky. The intention is that the Harm Reduction Specialist will be a leader in forwarding Community Access’ commitment to providing services using a harm reduction model.
