Harm Reduction Therapy

« Back to Glossary Index

Harm reduction therapy is a treatment approach that aims to reduce the negative consequences of problematic behaviors, rather than focusing on eliminating the behaviors themselves. This approach is often used with people who struggle with substance use disorders or other behaviors that may be harmful to themselves or others.

Harm Reduction Therapy

The goal of harm reduction therapy is to help people make healthier choices and improve their overall well-being, rather than simply trying to get them to stop engaging in certain behaviors. This may involve providing support and resources to help individuals reduce their use of substances or make other changes to their lifestyles. It can also involve providing education and information about the risks associated with certain behaviors, and helping people develop strategies to manage their behaviors more healthily.

Harm reduction therapy is often used in combination with other treatment approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or 12-step programs. It is a non-judgmental and inclusive approach that recognizes that people have different needs and may be at different stages in their journey toward recovery.
