OUR MISSION

Our mission is to provide seamless, comprehensive and effective harm reduction services and a full range of addictions treatment services that are amenable to an individual’s needs and goals. Our services are offered through community-based facilities with a focus on street and community outreach.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY 

At Breakaway Addiction Services we are dedicated to providing treatment that includes all aspects of our client’s lives and situations. We have always operated on a non abstinence or ‘harm reduction’ approach, which forms the philosophical basis for all our work, in reducing harm and enhancing the health of our clients.

 

What is Harm Reduction?

Harm reduction is a set of practical strategies that reduce the negative consequences of drug use, incorporating a spectrum of strategies from safer use, to managed use, to abstinence. We use a harm reduction framework to support people who use drugs to live better, according to their own definition of better, while addressing the conditions of use, along with the use itself.
