Sure - Canadian Substance Use Resource and Knowledge Exchange Centre

People with lived and living experience of substance use have always been at the forefront of knowledge generation within the substance use field. Unfortunately, substance use stigma has often led to the devaluing of this knowledge, and the persistence of inadequate support for people who use substances within health care and other settings. In order to advance substance use policy and practice in Canada and abroad, improved collaboration between people providing and accessing substance use services is essential. (BCCSU, n.d.). Resources in this section draw on the perspectives of people with lived and living experience of substance use, and outline best practices and opportunities for collaboration and engagement.
