    Real Talk

    A substance use education group that meets bi-weekly at the Drop-In Center.

    It is a safe space for young people to explore topics related to substance use and harm reduction.

    Due to COVID-19, all in-person groups are now happening virtually. Please contact Chardae at 734-478-1163 or ckorhonen@ozonehouse.org for more information.

    What is Harm Reduction?

    Harm Reduction approaches to substance use are rooted in dignity, education and choice. Harm Reduction is the practice of meeting people where they are at, without judgement, and with a primary focus on safety and reducing the potential harm that could be caused by drug and/or alcohol use.

    In both individual and group settings, Chardae offers mindfulness-based approaches to managing cravings and moderating use for those who are actively using. For those interested in treatment, the Engagement Program offers in-house support and resources as well as linkages to our community partners.
