S.A.F.E. Alternatives for Stopping Self Abuse
“The S.A.F.E. ALTERNATIVES © philosophy begins with the assumption that, although temporarily helpful, self-injurious behaviors is ultimately a dangerous and futile coping strategy which interferes with intimacy, productivity and happiness. There is no “safe” or “healthy” amount of self-injury. We also believe that self-injury is not an addiction over which one is powerless for a lifetime, people can and do stop injuring, with the right kinds of help and support. Self-injury can be transformed from a seemingly uncontrollable compulsion to a choice.”
