  • My Work as a Certified Recovery Specialist in a Harm Reduction Community

    “Experience is of supreme value” - Henry Ford

    As my disease of addiction progressed and moved through my life like a tornado twisting and turning and eventually separating me from society. I became isolated, hopeless and had sacrificed everything that was once precious to me it took away my job, my marriage, home and the loving relationships with my family.

    Become an Advocate

    PAHRC believes that grassroots advocacy is the most effective way to create change and effectively respond to the opioid epidemic in Pennsylvania. When done well, grassroots advocacy creates space for anyone and everyone who cares about an issue to share their stories, speak their truths, and advocate for the policies they believe in. That’s why PAHRC needs you: your story, ideas, and passion can only make us stronger and more effective advocates, care providers, and compassionate human beings.

    How We Engage in Grassroots Advocacy

    We train Advocates to speak effectively about their personal experience and equip them with research on access to sterile syringes, the importance of naloxone, and other harm reduction methods. Our Advocates work across the state and support each other in having conversations and reaching out to members of their communities. Chances are that you have already done some advocacy work in your community without realizing it: whether it’s at a family dinner, in a school club, or with your friends, we want to give you the tools to keep doing it and become even more effective.
