CRUZ, Vânia Dias et al. Drug consumption among elderly and harm reduction: a reflection from the complexity. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.3, e20160076.  Epub 14-Jun-2016. ISSN 2177-9465.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/1414-8145.20160076.

Objective:

To reflect on the harm reduction among older people who use drugs, from the perspective of Morin's complexity.

Methods:

A philosophical theoretical study that used the seven guiding principles of a binding thought that deals with uncertainty and are constantly building process: systemic or organizational, holographic, retroactivity, recursion, self-reliance, dialogical and reintroduction of the knowing subject in all knowledge.

Results:

There is a relationship between some guiding principles of harm reduction and behaviour of elderly people who use drugs, reflecting from questions and provocations made by antagonistic and complementary characteristics.

Conclusions:

The framework of complexity enabled dialogue on the plurality of ideas that permeate the lives of elderly people who use drugs and who show antagonistic and discordant practices, which the Harm Reduction Program seeks to understand and respect, without proposing behaviours judged suitable and abstinence.
