Movable: Narratives of Recovery and Place is an interactive community platform that solicits, publishes, and archives written and audio-visual narratives of recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) in Appalachia and beyond. Movable enables individuals in recovery to share their stories, and the site allows those with SUD to read, react to, and be inspired by recovery narratives.
Harm reduction is a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use. Harm Reduction is also a movement for social justice built on a belief in, and respect for, the rights of people who are in active addiction. Harm reduction does not encourage the use of drugs, but accepts that some people are not ready to start long-term recovery and promotes safety and reduction of disease and overdose by providing sterile supplies, STD testing, Naloxone, and community education.
