If you have a couple of minutes, check out Chris Budnick’s interview with Kevin McCauley.
The whole conversation is great, but 24:15 to 25:50 really leapt out at me.
Kevin shares his mom’s reaction to learning of his addiction and harm reduction as a “deeply humane response” to what is often perceived as a “set of unsolvable conditions.”
Kevin, we’re also glad you didn’t end up in Holland shooting drugs for the rest of your life.

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work.
Views expressed here are my own.
Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time.
