Addiction Supportive Housing Moves on to Knowledge Exchange

Addiction Supportive Housing Moves on to Knowledge Exchange

Early results suggest that individuals who participated in the ASH programs had fewer visits to the emergency department and connected more with primary care providers.

This year, the ASH evaluation team is aiming to host a knowledge exchange event in March, 2014 with 100 people across the province, including mental health and addiction providers.

The focus of this event will be to identify best practices, and develop guiding principles for supportive housing (e.g. Housing First, congregated model).
