CHART: Cannabis Harm-reduction And Recovery Training
CHART is a unique support group that honors all paths to recovery and supports all people seeking recovery, is humanist and scientific. CHART support groups are free to attend, and inclusive of all.
Cannabis - We recognize the cannabis plant as a medicinal supplement and essential nutrient that specifically and uniquely benefits the body endocannabinoid system (ECS.) As such, the responsible use of cannabis is not a barrier to or threat to sobriety. Harm-reduction - The substitution of a safer substance for one that is more dangerous. The substitution of natural medicines, supplements, and diet for harmful and addicting drugs not only eases withdrawal symptoms, which erases the pain and fear of detox, but synergistically heals and protects the body, mind & spirit along the path to recovery. Recovery Training - Recovery is a life-long journey that brings peace, challenge, meaning, and self-actualization to individuals. We think of the CHART Program as “training” rather than “treatment” because recovery is achieved and maintained by the consistent, mindful practice of the self-directed individual who chooses it. Throughout recovery, people are continuously learning, reflecting, practicing, and sharing information and experiences. CHART espouses a heart-centered, mindfulness-based harm-reduction approach to recovery.
