Summary
"Harm reduction is an increasingly recognized approach to the management of substance abuse and other behaviors that may pose serious health risks. Rather than defining drug use as a disease or a moral failing, harm reduction proponents stake out a humane and practical alternative - meeting clients "where they are at" to help them understand the risks involved in their behaviors and make appropriate decisions about their own treatment goals. The first major text on harm reduction, this timely volume explains the model's rationale and examines a range of applications in diverse communities. Insight is also offered into the often contentious philosophical and policy-related debates surrounding this growing movement." "Up-to-date and informative, this book provides indispensable information for front-line drug and alcohol treatment providers, AIDS educators, and community health activists. Students and professionals in public health, clinical and health psychology, psychiatry, primary care, counseling, and social work will also find it an invaluable resource, as will readers interested in drug policy and the law."--BOOK JACKET
