Unlike prohibition, harm-reduction
strategies begin with the realistic and
nonjudgmental premise that there has
never been, and will never be, a drug
free society. This conference, featuring clinical and research experts in epidemiology, public health, addiction treatment, and harm reduction, will examine the record of various harm-reduction modalities in the developed world.
