Alcohol & Drugs

We're here to help LGBTQ people reduce the harms associated with the use of alcohol and other drugs by providing linkage to a range of relevant supportive services. 

We work with our clients in a supportive and non-judgmental way, whether their interest is to be more informed about drug use, be able to use in a safer manner or to get support to reduce or stop use.
