In some ways it seems like harm reduction help addicts with their addictions. However, to determine it is all bad--like your guest from Harvard seems ridiculous. How about helping stop or slow public health dangers -- like HIV, hepatitis, etc. And also, people against these programs drive me crazy because there is often no access to treatment centers. So what is an addict to do? Harm reduction is an appropriate way to help addicts, to gain their trust, a potential first step to more intervention, and helps with other public health issues. I think it is a vital part of any intervention strategy.
