What Is HAMS?
The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS provides pragmatic strategies to enable individuals to reduce the risks associated with drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction is non-judgmental–it sees nothing inherently wrong or diseased about recreational intoxication. Alcohol Harm Reduction recognizes that most drinkers have no wish to harm or kill themselves or others.
Alcohol Harm Reduction does not seek to force individuals to change in ways which they do not choose for themselves. Alcohol Harm Reduction respects every person as a unique individual and supports each individual in the goal which he/she has chosen for him/herself.
Alcohol Harm Reduction neither promotes nor condemns drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction supports goals of safer drinking, reduced drinking, or abstinence from alcohol or other substances.
The HAMS Harm Reduction Network provides information and support for people who wish to reduce the harm in their lives caused by the use of alcohol. We support every positive change.
