What is Harm Reduction Therapy?
Harm Reduction Therapy uses principles of treating substance use issues and combines them with counseling tenets. Harm Reduction Therapy for substance use issues makes using drugs or alcohol safer instead of entirely getting rid of the behavior.
For some people, completely stopping the use of substances might not be a possibility. Harm reduction aims to keep these individuals safe as they work toward recovery and healing.
Counselors use this therapy in treatment facilities, group counseling, or individual counseling.
Harm Reduction Therapy’s goal is to decrease adverse outcomes that individuals and society face when substance use issues are present.
