At 100 Million Ways, harm reduction is our primary objective. What safe alternatives exist for those dependent on opioids or with substance use disorder? Does cannabis-based medicine, for instance, help manage your chronic pain or substance use disorder? If it does and can reduce opioid intake, it is less likely you will die from your opioid addiction, and more likely, your quality of life will be better.
What other alternatives might also be viable? We support all manner of recovery. Any time you need immediate attention or advice, please call the SAMHSA Hotline at 1-800-662-4357, and these folks will help you sort out recovery resources and services near you.
We're With You!
But we also support you as you try to survive opioid dependence related to chronic pain or substance use disorder – especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has made life even more complicated than it already was.
This Foundation is new. Please help us evolve to become a valuable support environment for people challenged by dependence or with the disease that is substance use disorder.
