Harm Reduction Therapy Center
offices in San Francisco and Oakland
The Harm Reduction Therapy Center (HRTC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing alternative treatment to people with drug and alcohol problems. Harm Reduction Psychotherapy is based on the belief that substance abuse develops in each individual from a unique interaction of biological, psychological, and social factors. Harm Reduction Psychotherapy is a non-judgmental approach and respects that people use drugs for reasons. It addresses the complex relationship that people develop with drugs and alcohol. Drug and alcohol issues are addressed simultaneously with social and occupational concerns and psychological and emotional issues. Anyone is welcome in our treatment, regardless of the status of their drug use and regardless of their primary concerns or goals. A person’s goals can range from complete abstinence to controlled or safer use based on a desire to improve health, relationships, or one’s functioning in the world. Harm Reduction Therapy is suited for anyone who: is questioning whether their use of drugs and alcohol is a problem, has tried abstinence-based approaches and found them to be ineffective or undesirable, relapses frequently after attempts to be clean and sober, also suffers from emotional or psychiatric problems and wants help with these issues simultaneously, or prefers an alternative way of thinking about their drug use.
