Description

Harm Reduction is an alternative to traditional all or nothing approaches to “addiction” treatment. Harm Reduction is based on humane, rational, and evidence based models of therapy. As such, it recognizes that a strict 12 Step or Disease model doesn’t apply meaningfully to all people. It does recognize that we and our sources of unhappiness are complex and involve work, home, significant relationships, emotional experiences including trauma, and our means of coping on a daily basis.
We are here to help reduce the negative impact of drugs, alcohol, gambling, self injury, and the like on individuals, their families and communities.

The safety and strength clients draw from that solid therapeutic relationship allows them to feel more freedom to examine, embrace, and express who they really are.
