Part 3 - Harm reduction

Is it fueling the illegal drug trade? And who picks up the baton after SFPD arrests dealers?

Make sure to watch episode 1 and 2 before watching the 3rd episode (see links below).

In the 3rd part in a 4-part series about the opioid crisis in San Francisco (a.k.a. Gotham By The Bay) Stanley Roberts looks at what is being called harm reduction. Harm reduction, or sometimes called harm minimization, often refers to a range of public health policies designed to lessen the negative social and/or physical consequences associated with human behaviors, both legal or illegal.

Stanley talks to several people, including a former drug addict turned recovery advocate Tom Wolf, who was homeless and addicted to multiple drugs before turning his life around. Tom is now working to fix a system he considers broken.

There are somewhere in the range of 60 nonprofits divvying up $240 million dollars in money from the City of San Francisco, however instead of helping people get off drugs, critics believe they are enabling people to use drugs thus fueling the illegal drug market.
