Substance Use Treatment

Our substance use counseling and treatment services are based on the philosophy of harm reduction. Our services help you set your own goals. So, whether you’re looking to improve your health, relationships, or functioning in the world, we’ve got something for you. We welcome you wherever you’re at and do not require you to stop using to receive services.

Services are available for gay, bisexual, queer, trans men, and other men who have sex with men through The Stonewall Project, PROP and Cheers Queers, and for all people who use drugs or inject at the Harm Reduction Center.

Want structure, personalized counseling, and a “treatment plan”? Each week in our enrolled program, you’ll meet with your own counselor and participate in two groups of your choice. Manage your substance use, cut down or work towards abstinence – at your own pace! Come to a walk-in session with a counselor to learn more.

Enrolled members who are linked to an individual counselor can access additional specialized groups and services. Here’s an example of the enrolled program schedule.
