  • Substance use counselling for individuals and families.
  • Cultural activities targeted for people at risk of problematic substance use.
  • Recovery groups.
  • Harm reduction initiatives.
  • Capital planning.
  • Other innovative addiction treatment initiatives.

One application for multiple eligible activities is encouraged, depending on community needs.
