Harm Reduction Brochures

An Overview on HACHR

The Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction (HACHR) seeks to contribute to a healthy and happy community for all people who live in Humboldt County. We use evidence based strategies to meet people who use drugs where they are and help them move toward a healthier, more stable life through the power of community and advocacy.

Overamping is the term we use to describe an “overdose” on speed or cocaine. Overamping means a lot of things. Sometimes it is physical, when our bodies don’t feel right. Other times it is psychological, like paranoia, anxiety or psychosis—or a mixture of the two. It’s complicated because sometimes one person considers something overamping, and the other person  considers it just part of the high.

For more information, check out our brochure on Overamping, or check out the Harm Reduction Coalition’s series on Overamping.


Vein Care

Rotate your spot! When you stick a needle in your skin, it leaves a hole that has to heal. The same is true with your veins! You can keep your veins in good shape if you let the spot heal before you hit on it again.
