Publicly-funded live-in addiction recovery services in British Columbia

May 2016 – December 2016

This project will lay a foundation for improved access to publicly funded live-in addiction recovery programs throughout British Columbia. The project will involve creating a detailed map and inventory of existing publicly funded live-in addiction recovery programs in BC. It will also involve a literature review supplemented by consultations with experts in mental health and addiction treatment. The project will provide important information about service availability, clients' needs, patterns of service use, gaps and best practices for maximizing resources.
