Philosophy of Harm Reduction ProgramsOur philosophy is client-centered, non-judgmental, authentic, caring, strength based and respectful of color, religion and ancestry. The intent of our work with clients is to recognize strengths, build on capacities to make healthier life choices (reduce transmission of (HepB/ HepC/HIV) and reflect their state of readiness for change.
Clients may or may not be in a pre-contemplative state of readiness for change.

With patience and a non-judgment approach, we accept “this is their journey.”
