A. Treatment and Harm reduction – as a part of recovery process 

Everybody with drug use disorder must have access to a wide range of services. Harm reduction, treatment and rehabilitation should be integrated and must aim to maximizing the affected individual’s possibility to recover.

In this session we will focus on how we can use harm reduction measures to promote recovery. How can we improve Medical Assisted Treatment so more people can be encouraged to move forward in the recovery process?

Organizations working with the whole chain from harm reduction interventions to reintegration into society will also present their work and best practices.
