What is the SAHARA Men’s Group Program?
SAHARA Men’s Group program is in existence since July 1995. It is a linguistically and culturally appropriate psycho-educational 16 week group program for South Asian men. The group addresses “substance abuse” and “violence behaviour” issues simultaneously. In addition, this group works closely with women and other extended family members and provides holistic care to the entire family. An interim report is provided upon request by the referral source and each participant receives a completion certificate upon successful completion of the 16 week group program.
