The main objective of the session is to present the efforts made in recent years to strengthen the harm reduction network in Athens. New facilities have been created, including DCR and hostels for drug addicts, street work actions have been strengthened, and the use of naloxone has been expanded through a legal framework so that it can now be used by therapists on the street. The session will present the new facilities, the goals that have been achieved, the results of these efforts, the challenges that have arisen during the process, and the next day in the field of addictions.
