Opening Doors to Care for People Who Use Drugs

Regional Meeting (Atlantic) |

This exciting regional meeting is part of our effort to expand access to quality care for people who use drugs, including client-centred OAT and safer supply programs in the Atlantic Region. We will explore how to develop a “made for Atlantic Canada approach” to providing a continuum of care that meets the diverse needs of people in our communities through plenary and small-group sessions. Additionally, there will be opportunities for informal discussions and networking.

This event is being hosted by the NSS-CoP in collaboration with the Substance User Network of the Atlantic Region (SUNAR) and Direction 180.
