Stonewall Walk-In Activity Schedule


We are committed to the harm reduction philosophy. At our Stonewall Project services you do not have to be clean and sober or even want to be. You will be invited to set your own goals at your own pace- we welcome anything from complete abstinence to controlled or safer substance use, to partial abstinence based on your desire for change to improve your health, relationships, and your functioning in the world.

We have many walk-in activities open to the public every week.

Come as you are:
