F Fentanyl Inc
In response to the devastating impact of fentanyl and other substances on the Miami community, Thomas Guerra founded the organization "F Fentanyl" in 2023. Their objective is to provide support to people who use drugs (PWUD), regardless of whether they are seeking recovery or not, with the ultimate goal of preventing overdose deaths. Their approach emphasizes harm reduction strategies to reduce the risks associated with drug use, while also providing resources for those who choose to pursue recovery. The message is clear: we must take action to fight against the dangers of fentanyl and other harmful substances.
What is Harm Reduction?
Harm reduction is an approach that promotes health in a way that meets people where they are at, accepting that not everyone is ready or capable of stopping their substance use at a given time. Instead of making judgments about where individuals suffering from addiction should be with regards to their health and behavior, harm reduction focuses on promoting evidence-based methods for reducing associated health risks in the current moment (e.g., preventing HIV transmission).
The defining features of harm reduction include a focus on the prevention of harm, rather than on the prevention of substance use itself. Harm reduction initiatives run the gamut from medical care and disease prevention, to education and linkage to addiction treatment. (Recoveryanswes.org)
