About Operation Unity

For many, harm reduction can be seen as something different or less than recovery. For us, we believe harm reduction is both a pathway and program of recovery. As Philadelphia deals with an increasingly detrimental overdose mortality crisis, our volunteers and staff are dedicated to saving lives through naloxone distribution, overdose prevention training, passing out safer substance use kits (gauze, sterile wipes, first aid ointment), and conducting community outreach throughout the city.

Saving Lives
  • Everyone has a right to life and safety
  • Every overdose is preventable
  • Harm reduction strategies are proven effective
