Substance use disorder is recognized as a chronic illness, yet it continues to be viewed as a moral issue from both a societal and health care perspective in Canada. This guide is to assist you in research topics related to addiction, treatment and recovery of these disorders as well as trauma-informed care, related stigma and harm reduction avenues. Here you will find information on the various substances commonly found in Canada, including tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, opioids and stimulants. The guide also has information on special populations at particular risk.
