Alcohol/Drug Use

The Stonewall Project is a non-shaming and sex positive counseling program for men looking to make changes to their crystal meth, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, GHB, Ketamine, alcohol and/or other drug use.

We offer a broad range of services that recognize your strengths, integrate substance use and mental health counseling, mindfulness and wellness services. Stonewall is a treatment program committed to the harm-reduction philosophy. We invite you to bring all of who you are to services on your journey toward improved health, relationships, or functioning in the world.

Make Stonewall part of your solution:

  • Are you experiencing troubles connected to your drug or alcohol use?
  • Want to build skills and get support to make changes?
  • Would you like a program that specifically welcomes gay, bi, and transmen who have sex with men?
  • Hope to develop practices that can help you cope with emotions, grief, trauma, and other life issues?
  • Looking for alternatives (or additions) to traditional 12 step support?

Walk in Monday through Friday at 4 pm or call 415-487-3100 and speak with a counselor.

If we aren’t the right fit we can help you find support that is.
