Portland’s Overdose Prevention Collective

This team proposes an initiative in partnership with a Rhode Island community organization that builds on a peer-centered, low barrier harm reduction model developed by people with lived experience of drug use. As future legalization efforts take hold, the guiding principles of this model will then be used to inform research opportunities and harm reduction initiatives.

Team members were Avi Yocheved, Joseph Cordo, Peach Anderson, Forest Tyler, and Ashley Perry
