SAMHSA Harm Reduction Framework Draft Open for Public Comment

July 17, 2023

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is pleased to announce that the agency’s Harm Reduction Framework Draft is now open for public comment. The framework will inform SAMHSA’s harm reduction activities, as well as related policies, programs, and practices.


SAMHSA’s aims are to integrate harm reduction activities across its Centers and initiatives, and to do so in a manner that draws on evidence-based practices and principles — while maintaining sustained dialogue with harm reductionists and people with lived and living experience. The framework will also inform SAMHSA of opportunities to work with other Federal, State, Tribal and local partners.


Comments on the Harm Reduction Framework Draft will be accepted now through 5 p.m. ET on August 14, 2023.
