New harm reduction project wants to empower substance users in Atlantic Canada – The Signal
October 28, 2020
Patrick Maubert wants to share his personal experience with substance use to help other users.
Last month, Maubert was part of a group from Halifax that travelled around the Atlantic bubble to launch a new project called the Substance Users Network of the Atlantic Region (SUNAR). They visited six organizations that provide harm reduction services like clean needles and glass pipes. The goal of the federally funded project is simple: find out what is working in local communities and help them do that work.
