The Stonewall Project is a non-shaming and sex positive counseling program for men looking to make changes to their crystal meth, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, GHB, Ketamine, alcohol and/or other drug use.

We offer a broad range of services that recognize your strengths, integrate substance use and mental health counseling, mindfulness and wellness services. Stonewall is a treatment program committed to the harm-reduction philosophy. We invite you to bring all of who you are to services on your journey toward improved health, relationships, or functioning in the world.

Walk in Monday-Friday at 4PM or call (415) 487-3100 and speak with a counselor.

Group and Individual Help

Self-Directed Program: Each week Stonewall offers a variety of walk in groups, book clubs, harm reduction education opportunities, syringe exchange services, individual counseling, and wellness services like meditation, massage and acupuncture. No paperwork, no intake, no waits. You decide what services are a good fit. See our walk in services schedule.

Structured Enrolled Program: After meeting with Stonewall’s Intake Coordinator and attending three orientation groups you will be matched with a skilled therapist, social worker, or certified addiction counselor for six months to a year and attend two groups each week designed to support your goals. Additionally, Stonewall offers elective groups on healing trauma, stress, anger, & communication, sex and sexuality, Mindfulness and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Depending on your individual needs, we provide psychiatric assessments, anti-depressants/mood stabilizers or other psychiatric medications, and assistance linking to and obtaining services at other agencies.

Meet with PROP Coordinator Rick Andrews to enroll in this supportive incentivized program for gay, bi, and transmen who have sex with men and male-to-female transgender people and choose to stop using stimulants.
