HARM REDUCTION SERVICES
As an Odyssey House client, you’ll receive high-quality care and services that respect your health and dignity.
Our approach incorporates individualized treatment plans, evidence-based practices, medication-assisted treatment, recovery support, and harm reduction services.
Harm reduction is precisely what it sounds like: reducing the harm associated with using drugs through various tools and strategies. These services aim to decrease the stigma associated with addiction, increase health literacy, and connect you with additional community-based services as needed and wanted.
At Odyssey House, you’ll have access to harm reduction tools such as:
- Opioid overdose reversal training (Narcan)
- Fentanyl residue test strips (Outpatient Services and Recovery Center clients)
- Safer sex counseling, condoms, and dental dams
- Screening for infectious diseases: Hepatitis C, STDs, HIV
- Nicotine replacement therapy
