Harm Reduction Network

The Harm Reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support (HAMS) Network is a free-of-charge, peer-led support group for people concerned about their use of alcohol, marijuana, nicotine and/or caffeine. HAMS is open and welcoming to people who wish to reduce or eliminate the harm in their lives caused by any substance or any behavior. The 11 elements of the HAMS program help members to achieve safer use, reduced use, or abstinence from alcohol/drugs. HAMS sponsors live meetings in New York City and a chat room and email group as well articles on its website.
