Sexual Health in Recovery

The goal of the Sexual Health in Recovery (SHIR) group is to help people in recovery to maintain sobriety by addressing sexual behavior, thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be linked to drinking or using drugs. The curriculum draws the attention of participants to the potential connections between their substance use, the relationships they are in, and the sex they engage in.

SHIR is currently offered in limited locations.

If you are an individual interested in attended a group, or if you're a provider interesting in being a SHIR site, contact Harm Reduction services at 301-600-1755 or
