Community Drug Strategy for the City of Greater Sudbury

Substance use affects us all. From the challenges of keeping medications away from children and teens; to alcohol use in teens and adults; to experimentation with substances and addictions, and accidental poisonings – everyone has a role to play in creating a safer community.

We Are Jeff

Working together for our community’s health.

Keeping your family and friends safe from the impacts of substance use contributes to the health, safety and well-being of communities in Greater Sudbury. We offer strategies for youth, adults, and older adults to be informed and educated in promoting health.

Those people are us

Stigma is the use of negative stereotypes to judge or discriminate.

Unfortunately, stigma is one of the largest, most impactful barriers that people who use drugs face on a daily basis. People who use drugs come from all walks of life, we don’t know who might be struggling. Talk to your friends and family about drug use.

How can you make a difference in your community?

Sign up for drug alerts, learn about how and where to get naloxone, how and where to safely dispose of discarded needles, how to safely dispose of unused and expired medication, and more!
