Substance Use

Substance use is a health issue, not a moral issue. Harm reduction is an approach that focuses on reducing and minimizing the impact of consuming drugs and/or alcohol on people, their families, friends, and communities. A harm reduction approach meets people where they are. 

We encourage you to consult and talk about what’s going on in your life. There are services and support available at your local CMC.

Get informed, get help, and support people around you

Reach out to family, friends, youth outreach workers, community workers or your local resources if you need to talk.
