“NO JUDGEMENT, NO SHAMING, NO PREACHING, JUST LOVE! (800) 484-3731 If you are going to use by yourself, call us! You will be asked for your first name, location, and the number you are calling from. An operator will stay on the line with you while you use. If you stop responding after using, the operator will notify emergency services of an \”unresponsive person\” at your location.”– From neverusealone.com
Mike Brown has been working in harm reduction for much of his career. He is a former IV heroin user, and founder of Never Use Alone, a hotline people who are using drugs can call if they are worried about overdosing. We talk about Mike’s experience with kratom and why the people who told him “You can’t get withdrawals from it” were wrong, what’s wrong with 12-step programs, why harm reduction works better than abstinence, and why the war on drugs is doing more damage than healing.
