Harm Reduction is an alternative treatment approach which views the reduction of harm as a legitimate goal for substance users. Our organization provides substance abuse counseling as well as harm reduction training for therapists and counselors who want to learn about a different approach to treatment.

Harm Reduction Psychotherapy and Training Associates offers a "harm reduction" approach to substance abuse treatment. Research has found that it is easier for some people to begin counseling when specific goals are not required to enter treatment. In harm reduction treatment, any treatment goal is valid that helps reduce harm to an individual. Therefore, total abstinence is one goal among several alternatives. In other words, abstinence falls under the umbrella of harm reduction. This results in an approach that tailors the treatment to fit the individual, rather than trying to make the individual fit into a treatment model.
