We look at addiction in its full force, we don't understand that behind that are the scars of trauma. It is about support not punishment and criminalisation. I had to be brought back to life six times before I finally accessed harm reduction. I spent 30 years in a cycle of gangs, drug addiction, homelessness and jail but now I use my lived experience to support others. If harm reduction didn't exist, I wouldn't exist and if recovery didn't exist then I wouldn't live the life I have today.
