Harm Reduction with the Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis

‘Even though we’re doing better, because we are, we still have such a long way to go.’

Justin Phillips, Founder

Harm Reduction with Substance Use Disorder is an ongoing public health initiative to provide accessible resources to those most at risk.  The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis is a community centered foundation that works with organizations, like Overdose Lifeline, to build a better conversation around the benefit of public health services like Harm Reduction. 

There’s been a lot of controversy around Syringe Service Programs, despite the fact that users are 5x more likely to enter drug treatment and 3x more likely to stop using drugs than those who don’t participate in the program. Syringe Service Programs have also been shown to reduce the spread of disease while providing access to medical, housing, and nutritional resources.  

Recently,  The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis put together some educational videos featuring the work being done on harm reduction throughout Indiana. With the legal and social barriers we face in Harm Reduction programs, we hope that our collective efforts with these great organizations can change the course. We want to give a special thanks to the Health Foundation for including us!
