People Who use Drugs are Humans. Let's Treat Them That Way.
To redefine public health by meeting Floridians who use drugs where they are at through syringe access, overdose prevention, and all other healthcare needs in between.
By centering and amplifying the voices of communities and people of color, sex workers, drug users, and others directly impacted by the war on drugs, we are working towards a future free of HIV/Hepatitis C, drug overdose, the patrolling of body autonomy, systemic racism and mass incarceration.
Our Vision is a state free of HIV, Hepatitis C, drug overdoses, and soft tissue infections; a state where drug use, education, prevention, and treatment organizations work together to develop programs that further healthier decision making for drug users, their families, and communities.
In 2019, a small group of Harm Reduction activists met at Rebel Recovery in West Palm Beach to link together and found Florida Harm Reduction Collective, Inc. The Collective received its 501(c)3 status in 2021 and continues to expand! The Collaborative is comprised of Recovery Community Organizations, Overdose Prevention Programs, Syringe Service Programs, Community-Based Organizations, and other stakeholders working to decrease the harms of drug use and eliminate the stigma associated with harm reduction.
