The Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR), formerly the Centre for Addictions Research of BC, at the University of Victoria, is a network of individuals and groups dedicated to the study of substance use and addiction. CISUR seeks to support community-wide efforts to promote health and reduce harm.

CISUR publishes research bulletins and educational resources. These are designed to help health professionals support individuals and communities deal with issues related to substance use and addiction. CISUR also publishes a range of information and self-help materials. These publications help people better understand, prevent and manage substance use and related issues. The goal is happier, healthier lives, whether using substances or not.

Looking at the numbers for the mobile safe consumption service, this facility is well attended and is delivering a service that is valued by the clients. However, referrals from the mobile to other services have been low, potentially due to the lack of space and time available to engage clients in confidential discussions about treatment options and harm reduction.    Additionally, the spectrum of mental health and substance use services in Kelowna is not optimized.  There are gaps in service, sometimes wait times, and other areas of opportunity that need improvement. Additional funding would assist Interior Health to develop and expand the programs and range of services to improve outcomes for patients and service recipients. This is the key to the overall issue: unless you deal with the roots of the problem, increasing health, housing and safety costs will continue to burden all levels of government.

The treatment of those individual with addictions is extremely complex. It’s an oversimplification to say, there are not enough detox or treatment beds, as substance use rehabilitation requires different strategies. No two individuals are the same in terms of use, type of substance, time they have been using the substance, daily intake. Other factors to consider are psychological characteristics if each individual and elements of their lifestyle. However, even during the crisis, there is need to support individuals with addictions move into increased harm reduction and then into treatment services.

    “I still use what I learned from iRecover Alberta everyday. That, for me, started with the willingness to be responsible for my disease. From there I was able to change and I now have a great relationship with my husband and kids.”

    I attended the Serenity Ranch in Tees Alberta in July-August, 2011 I very much gained the necessary tools to use when I finished there. I still use them today. I enjoyed the new circle of friends and staff. I loved to work out in the gym, food was amazing. I highly recommend this centre as it is out of nowhere and got you grounded. Wish I could visit there as a visitor or helper as I am a very much loving sobriety”
