The provincial government should develop a comprehensive system of substance use services capable of addressing the diverse needs of young people across British Columbia, says a report released today by the Representative for Children and Youth.

The need for harm reduction to be a key component of this wrap-around system is among the recommendations in Time to Listen: Youth Voices on Substance Use, a report that offers the first-hand perspectives of 100 young people in B.C. with lived experience and also draws on lessons learned from an aggregate review of substance use-related injury and death reports received by RCY in 2017.
