Oral Question 886-19(2): Addictions Support in Communities
December 9th, 2021
Julie Green Yellowknife Centre
Yes, thank you. I just went over the general list, the community counselling program, which I just mentioned, and the fact that it is now transformed into a same-day service. There are child and youth care counsellors which are offered jointly with ECE in the schools which provide support to youth. There are the E-mental health options which I just mentioned, Wagon, but there are others. There are facilities-based addictions treatment. There are no facilities in the NWT so these are facilities in the south which we contract and people attend.
We have psychiatric care and treatment available in the Northwest Territories. We have the NWT Help Line to call with immediate needs. And then I'll just mention again the three specific funds:
- On-the-land healing;
- Community suicide prevention; and,
- Addictions recovery peer support.
See context to find out what was said next.
