Andrew Tatarsky

Andrew Tatarsky developed Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP) for the spectrum of risky and addictive behavior. IHRP brings psychoanalysis, CBT and mindfulness together in a harm reduction frame. IHRP has been described in his book, Harm Reduction Psychotherapy: A New Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Problems, and a series of papers. He is Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Optimal Living in NYC, a treatment and professional training center based on IHRP. Andrew has trained in 18 countries. His writing, teaching, clinical work and leadership aim to promote a re-humanized view addiction and a harm reduction continuum of care that will extend help to everyone who needs and wants it whereever they are ready to begin their positive change journeys.
