Counseling Services

In Harm Reduction practice, we recognize that active drug users who may be HIV+, homeless, and not connected to systems of care, are more likely to require a higher threshold of services in order to address their needs. It is because of this that LESHRC developed our Counseling Services Program. Services are provided by specially trained and committed staff.

When someone requests any of these services they will be required to complete an initial intake interview during which the agency’s programs and services are described. Participants seeking assistance with housing issues, physical and mental health, and substance use concerns, can meet with a member of our Counseling Services staff and work toward creating an agreement on the best route to take in order to meet the individual’s needs.  In most cases these services start immediately. Please call 212-226-6333 for an appointment for an intake interview.
