These online support groups are designed to provide additional support for clients who have completed the 8-Week Harm Reduction Psycho-educational Group or have had previous experience with harm reduction. The group topic comes from group participants and are focused around the issues that arise while working towards moderating, or abstaining from, substances. Participants set intentions for use and healthy lifestyle practices that minimize the harm from use. Participants also explore with the group their ability to maintain their intentions or discuss the obstacles that may inhibit the ability to maintain their intentions.
