OBJECTIF

This project aims to introduce the methodology of harm reduction in the non formal education youth field in general and the partner organisations.

The main objective is to sensitize participants in reducing the risks associated with drug use and advise partner organizations for the development of this methodology is set as a key objective to increase awareness about effects and risks associated with drug use both among young people, by promoting accurate information and quality training for social actors more directly involved in the issue.

We define harm reduction as the ‘policies, programmes and practices that aim to reduce the harms associated with the use of psychoactive drugs in people unable or unwilling to stop. The focus is on the prevention of harm, rather than on the prevention of drug use itself.’

This methodology recognizes the existence of a recreational drug use, characterized by its connection to leisure time, in Informal contexts (private houses, parks, streets …) or recreational (discotheques, festivals, etc.) and with a motivation oriented to experimentation and pleasure. It is recognized that there are forms of consumption that involve very little risks while others that are extremely risky.

This consumption can be -but not always- characterized by being irresponsible and uninformed, generating risky situations (physical and / or psychological addiction development, health effects, accidents, etc.) for themselves and for others (driving under the effects of psychoactive substances, domestic violence, etc.).

What is Harm Reduction?

We define harm reduction as the ‘policies, programmes and practices that aim to reduce the harms associated with the use of psychoactive drugs in people unable or unwilling to stop. The focus is on the prevention of harm, rather than on the prevention of drug use itself.’

This methodology recognizes the existence of a recreational drug use, characterized by its connection to leisure time, in Informal contexts (private houses, parks, streets …) or recreational (discos, festivals, etc.) and with a motivation oriented to experimentation and pleasure. It is recognized that there are forms of consumption that involve very little risks while others that are extremely risky.

This consumption can be -but not always- characterized by being irresponsible and uninformed, generating risky situations (physical and / or psychological addiction development, health effects, accidents, etc.) for themselves and for others (driving under the effects of psychoactive substances, domestic violence, etc.).

Why is it important and useful?

Young people often want to know the risks they are exposed to but often can not because of the lack of access to reliable information on psychoactive substances and they end up making impulsive and unreflective decisions. Drugs have effects that are highly valued by the people who consume them. Experimentation and pleasure is an inherent aim of most drug use. The other part is the risks to which the consumer is exposed: the person himself, the substance that consumes and the context in which it does. Adequate information is essential when deciding whether to consume or not and, if so, to avoid the risks of consumption.
