Who we are

 

Indigo Harm Reduction is a Harm Reduction organization based in Edmonton, Alberta, that provides services to the nightlife industry, large events and festival communities. Indigo strives to deliver access to scientifically based harm reduction strategies and services to promote health education in a safe, supportive and unbiased environment. We encourage community members to make conscious well informed decisions for their health and well-being. Indigo approaches the harmful risks in the nightlife and festival communities by providing support at live events with reliable harm reduction services through peer to peer support and engagement. We do not encourage any consumption of drugs or condemn but acknowledge harmful behaviors that are within the nightlife, large events and festival communities.  #supportnotpunish
