Video Description

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.


"In May of 2006, I rushed to the emergency room because my hands, arms, feet and legs cramped so bad that I couldn't move them and my face was tingling. I was dehydrated and malnourished. My body was trying to tell me something and I was forced to listen."
