The Harm Reduction Home (HRH) Residential Program works to support individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and who are also impacted by alcohol dependence.
The HRH Residential Program provides access to a managed alcohol program (MAP) where individuals are supported with housing and addressing primary care and mental health needs.
Individualized care planning assists individuals to work towards personal goals and enhanced overall wellbeing through a person centred approach that meets them where they are at. While the abstinence model works for many, for some the ability to abstain from drinking is not feasible. Alcohol is administered on a daily basis by medical personnel as per a schedule determined by a physician’s medical assessment and direction.
The HRH program works to reduce the harms associated with consuming non-beverage forms of alcohol such as mouthwash, hand sanitizer and more. The HRH is staffed with qualified medical and social support personnel that oversee the individuals to ensure their day-to-day and primary care needs are being met.
