Harm Reduction Michigan is a health equity organization based in Michigan.
Our commitment is to be in community with people most impacted by the collateral consequences of addiction and drug use.
Our charge involves re-framing and changing the field of drug treatment and mental health and related social services to address stigma driven trauma and its effects.
