Hey there, we are peers across Canada who have grown up with the stress and stigma of a parent's substance use. You too? We are so glad you are here.

If you or someone you love is in immediate physical danger, please call the distress centre closest to you, or 911.

Having a parent who has an addiction can be really stressful, and society's assumptions can make it really stressful to reach out for help. As peers, we get how hard and harmful it all can be, and would love for you to use our resources or join our peer sessions below.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE, AND YOU WERE NEVER MEANT TO NAVIGATE THE STRESS AND STIGMA RELATED TO THESE EXPERIENCES AND EMOTIONS ALONE.
 

We know reaching out can be scary, especially if you've never done so. But we are real people with real experiences, and we get it. We are here whenever you are ready. You are NOT alone, and we mean it.
