Chambers and Blohm employs a harm reduction approach to address an individual’s unique chemical use issues. The harm reduction model is based on a set of practical strategies intended to reduce the negative consequences of high risk behaviors. Harm reduction is a non- judgmental approach that attempts to meet people “where they are at.” It is a pragmatic and compassionate model that advocates lessening the harms of chemical use through education, prevention, and treatment. Instead of demanding perfect abstinence, harm reduction strives to support those who wish to minimize the dangers associated with excessive drinking or drug use. Research indicates that it is far more effective to teach people to plan their behavior and use safely than to try to eliminate recreational intoxication entirely.
