The program offers both individual counselling sessions, daily drop-in group programming, and consultations with specialists to optimize patient outcomes

Our mission is to provide young adults with the support and skills to:

  1. Reduce the negative impacts of substance use on young adults' lives. This can be abstinence, reduced use, or using harm reduction strategies. 

  2. Improve mental health and wellbeing by considering the whole-person.

  3. Increase substance-free activities to create a pleasurable life that aligns with their goals.

We value:

  • Providing young adult centered care

  • Creating a safe(r) space

  • Considering the whole person

  • Collaboration with young adults and community providers

  • Using evidence-based practices and contributing to evidence
