Harm Reduction for Alcohol

HAMS is a peer-led and free-of-charge support and informational group for anyone who wants to change their drinking habits for the better. The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS Harm Reduction strategies are defined in the 17 elements of HAMS. HAMS offers support via an online forum, a chat room, an email group, a facebook group, and live meetings. We also offer harm reduction information via the HAMS Book, the articles on this web site, and the HAMS podcast. HAMS supports every positive change. Choose your own goal - safe drinking, reduced drinking, or quitting alcohol altogether. It does not matter how much or how little you drink; if you want to make a change you are welcome here. If you are concerned that you might have withdrawal symptoms if you quit drinking all at once, please visit our taper page for information about how to taper off alcohol. All HAMS services are offered free-of-charge. If you have been helped by HAMS, please consider visiting our DONATE page to make a donation to help keep us running. All profits from sales of the HAMS book are used to keep our organization running, too. All information on this site may be reproduced free of charge as long as the HAMS copyright is included.  (Read More...)

Wings Foundation

WINGS’ mission is to break the cycle and heal the wounds of childhood sexual abuse by providing education, advocacy and support to adult survivors, loved ones, providers and communities. Specifically, WINGS works to connect survivors, loved ones, providers and communities with the resources they need to speak about, heal from and thrive beyond CSA trauma, to live their fullest, healthiest lives. We do this by offering referrals to qualified therapists, training and education, and therapist-facilitated support groups in a number of confidential locations to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their loved ones. Our program serves anyone who is 18 and older. Our “Survivors’ & Loved Ones’ Guide to Healing” handbook is a comprehensive resource used in our support groups to facilitate group members’ processes of learning and healing. The most powerful aspect of our program is the dialogue and exchange that occurs among and between group members in their weekly WINGS support group. In addition to support groups, WINGS offers local and national referrals, workshops, speaking presentations and training to survivors, loved ones, service providers and the general community. WINGS also offers this comprehensive website and an onsite resource lending library containing information on healing from childhood sexual abuse and trauma. We invite you to utilize these resources to become more informed and empowered in your own journey as a survivor, loved one, community ally or professional working with CSA trauma. While WINGS is currently based in Denver, Colorado, and our support group services are primarily offered here, we are actively building organizational capacity to be able to offer our services nationwide. If you would like to learn more about being a WINGS partner, please contact our Executive Director at jenny.stith@wingsfound.org  (Read More...)
