Alcohol & Drug Counsellors

This program offers group alcohol and drug counselling sessions to Indigenous youth ages 13-24 years old throughout East Vancouver. Groups are established in partnership with community organizations who contribute to the program by providing space for meetings, helping to identify Indigenous youth who can benefit by participating in the meetings, and by advertising the program. 

The A & D Counsellors also offer limited individual counselling. We try to accommodate youth needs by meeting in an area that they choose in East Vancouver as long as a safe and confidential site can be identified, otherwise we can arrange to meet at our main office.
