Drugs and alcohol can be messy and destructive if you lose control of your use. You may find that despite your best efforts you are experiencing thought and behavior cycles that are leading you to a place you don't want to be. In this dark place, it can be overwhelming to know where to look for support. For many drug and alcohol users, groups have been found to be extremely helpful in maintaining motivation, holding accountability, and building supportive relationships in the community as you work to come to a right relationship with mind-altering substances. The Harm Reduction philosophy holds a "Come As You Are" attitude towards drug and alcohol group support. At any stage in your use, Harm Reduction aims to meet you where you are and help you reduce any harm you may experience through your drug and alcohol use. This could mean moderation, abstinence or other strategies, depending on your specific goals. With Harm Reduction, you set your own definition of success in your relationship with alcohol and drugs. The group will help you to come up with strategies and approaches that will help you meet your goals, and will hold you accountable and motivated to stay on track.
