The Harm Reduction Series is designed to provide care givers and providers with information on best practices for caring for individuals who are actively using substances. The education series will teach ways to expand the treatment continuum to include engaging and keeping people safe when they are actively using substances including alcohol, opioids, stimulants, and tobacco. The series is designed for a broad range of audiences and each module will be presented with an expert from the community to provide insight regarding strategies for engagement and implementation.

This training will focus on the sexual health-related risks associated with substance use disorder. The impact of survival sex and sex work on the well-being of both men and women and strategies to reduce violence and infections in this population will be explored. The training will review pharmacological interventions for HIV prevention including nPEP, PrEP, and the concept of U=U. Participants will be able to define STI testing strategies for the SUD provider and treatment considerations for patients on medication for addiction treatment.
