At the HaRRT Center, we work collaboratively with substance users, community members and organizations to develop, conduct, evaluate and disseminate evidence-based interventions that help to reduce substance-related harm, improve quality of life, and promote social and racial justice for affected individuals and their communities.

Main Challenge

Our ultimate goal is to reduce substance related harm, strengthen communities, and improve lives through collaborative research and community engagement. We aim to center and amplify the voices of people who have been marginalized by substance use to cultivate healthy communities and change unjust systems into equitable ones.

Our Approach

  • Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) framework
  • Client-Centered
