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.
