The BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU) is a provincially networked organization with a mandate to develop, help implement, and evaluate evidence-based approaches to substance use and addiction. Building on the extensive efforts of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, the BCCSU’s vision is to transform substance use policies and care in BC by translating research into education and evidence-based care guidance.
Moms Stop the Harm (MSTH) is a network of Canadian mothers and families whose loved ones have died due to substance misuse. Our network calls for an end to the failed war on drugs. We envision a new approach based on reducing harm, where people who misuse drugs are treated with dignity, respect, compassion and support.
Harm reduction is a practical approach to drug use. It recognizes that quitting drugs may not be realistic or desirable for everyone.
we are a non-profit organization committed to helping families struggling with their son’s or daughter’s substance use. We empower families with information, support and guidance to get the help their loved one needs and deserves. And we advocate for greater understanding and more effective programs to treat the disease of addiction.
Parents who have discovered their son’s or daughter’s drug use will speak of its accompanying torrent of emotions: guilt, fear and often shame. It’s a gut punch. Panic-stricken, many don’t know where to turn or what to do.
