HARMD® (Helping America Reduce Methadone Deaths), is a non-profit organization founded by surviving family members of loved ones lost to methadone. Our objective is to decrease opiate-related addiction, injury, and death.
Our mission is to …
· improve assessment, prescribing, dosing, and administration requirements for all methadone-related therapies, while insuring quality of care
· enhance education regarding “safe use”, potential dangers, and interactions of methadone and therapeutic equivalents
· lobby for more stringent regulation, management, and monitoring of all methadone-related therapies
· promote stricter laws, tougher consequences, and harsher penalties for opiate diversion to preserve community safety
