Harm reduction is a revolutionary framework for addressing substance misuse and addiction and other potentially risky behaviors that does not require abstinence. All positive changes are viewed as successes; so reducing, using more safely, moderating, controlling and stopping the behaviors are all seen as acceptable goals on the path towards positive change, healing and growth.

I have known Dr. Tatarsky and his work for nearly two decades. He is a pioneer in humane, empathic, and respectful approaches to helping people who are concerned about their alcohol or drug use make effective health decisions about those concerns. Having referred clients to Dr. Tatarsky over the years, and received nothing but positive feedback about his caring and engaging style of therapy, I can recommend him without hesitation for anyone who is concerned about substance use.
