    This introductory group is for someone who is new to Harm Reduction. Group members will learn about the philosophy of harm reduction and help identify effective harm reduction techniques that work for them. They will also work to identify and help to deal with the feelings that are associated with alcohol and other drug use. CBT, DBT and mindfulness are used to teach coping skills. There is modest setting of  intentions  and exploration around the ability to adhere to those intentions.   This group meets via Zoom on Mondays from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.       Assessments for the group are $250 and each psycho-educational group is $75 per session.

Participants also explore with the group their ability to maintain their intentions or discuss the obstacles that may inhibit the ability to maintain their intentions.
