Description: Welcome to Recovery Stories Have Power, a Faces & Voices of Recovery podcast, my name is Chelsey Cusimano. In season one, we’re exploring the topic of Harm Reduction. We’ve interviewed several guests and experts from key areas of the Harm Reduction community to discuss the history of the movement, its grassroots origins in fighting the AIDS epidemic, the perspectives of advocates and workers bringing Harm Reduction practices to their communities, and the relationship between Harm Reduction and recovery. To set the table for these season 1 conversations, co-host Oliver Books and I sat down with Faces & Voices of Recovery COO, Phil Rutherford. We discuss our personal introductions to Harm Reduction, the relationship Faces & Voices has with the movement and why Harm Reduction is a timely and important topic to explore in today’s recovery landscape.
