Welcome to episode 6 of This is What Recovery Looks Like. This month, we’re shifting the conversation away from harm reduction to an equally important, and often stigmatized, topic: recovery and sexuality.

Hear Tracie discuss how she came into harm reduction work, federal policies and advocacy initiatives that are moving us forward, the disproportionate harm the Black community has faced throughout the War on Drugs, and what advice she would give to those looking to get involved in harm reduction advocacy. Resources (from LAC's website): Treatment for opioid use disorder – not separate but still unequalHow equitable strategies in harm reduction are keeping communities safeMaia Szalavitz: “The work you’re doing before you get out of the chaos still counts.”Harm Reduction for All Drugs and All People?

Last month we witnessed stigmatizing, racist news coverage and public discourse surface around the Department of Health and Human Services' Harm Reduction Grant Program. To combat the misinformation being circulated, this episode is the first conversation in a 3-part series about Harm Reduction. In Part 1, Phil has a powerful conversation with Brittany Salerno, a founding member of the Philadelphia Overdose Prevention Network and an emergency buprenorphine coordinator at the Center for Addiction Medicine and Policy. Hear Brittany discuss the meaning of Harm Reduction, how it is socially stigmatized, her experiences in clinical and advocacy settings, and how she became involved in this life-saving work.
