The Stonewall Project is seeking clinical interns for our counseling program dedicated to providing harm reduction-based substance use and mental health treatment to gay men, transmen who have sex with men, and other men who have sex with men with drug and/or alcohol issues.
The goal of the Stonewall Project is to create a safe space where gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) who use crystal meth, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, alcohol and/or other drugs can come to deal with issues of concern to them without stipulations, conditions or judgment. We welcome participants at all stages of readiness, and do not require abstinence to receive services.
The aim of treatment is to reduce the harm caused to them, their loved ones, and their communities by their drug and/or alcohol use. As a program rooted in harm reduction, participant treatment goals vary and 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.
