Indigenous Harm Reduction Outreach and Counselling Program

About

Our Indigenous based Harm Reduction Outreach Program and Indigenous Addiction Counselling recognizes that healing, learning, and growth is a process, and community members need access to clean harm reduction supplies, naloxone, and support to reduce rates of blood borne infections and overdose. Our Team utilizes a strengths-based approach that recognizes the courage, honesty, and resiliency involved within an individual’s personal journey of healing. For the purpose of impacting success and reducing cultural barriers, and the stigma that impacts identity and wellness; Indigenous core values, cultural competencies and resources are utilized.<br />
