Recovery and harm reduction

An interesting statement on harm reduction and recovery:

We believe that recovery is best defined by the individual seeking it, and that it is not for academics or treatment providers to tell anyone what recovery should mean to them. We assert that for some people, recovery can be medication assisted for a short or longer time (on maintenance) whilst the person achieves other gains in health, social care and reintegration (participation in the rights, roles and responsibilities of society).

I wonder how bread the agreement would be on this statement:

Being drug free is the ultimate goal of harm reduction.

Very broad, I hope.
