- As part of Here's to Life's substance abuse counseling services,
Project Anew offers a specialized program
for Men who have sex with men (MSM) who are HIV positive or who are at high
risk for contracting HIV.
- Anew is
guided by a six-stage transformation model designed to assist participants in
identifying the developmental process of coming out in the gay world and how
substance use interferes with that transformation.
- Anew will particularly help
participants look at how substance use and recovery interrelate with being gay
and with the ways some people experience their sexual
identities. Led by a culturally competent, sensitive team of
professionals, this HTL program brings focus to issues rarely addressed in mainstream
substance abuse treatment programs.
- We provide quality education, support, and substance
abuse counseling services and HIV education and risk reduction that will
empower and motivate participants to lead healthy productive lifestyles with
dignity and self-respect.
- HTL is committed to offering
this project in environments that allow them to promote a sensitive program of
care for men who have sex with men. Anew will support
them to reach back and address issues such as self-hatred that led to uncontrollable
drug and alcohol use.
