At the FNHA, we see drug use as a health issue rather than a moral issue. We encourage you to adopt a harm reduction approach in your life and to have conversations about how to keep yourself, family members and friends safe.
First Nations peoples are disproportionately represented in overdose deaths in BC. The FNHA is responding to this public health crisis with ways to get informed, get help and support others – with facts, services and compassion.

Beginning on Jan. 31, 2023, and lasting for a three year period of time, possession of small amounts of certain illegal drugs, such as opioids and cocaine, will be decriminalized in BC.
The FNHA's “Increase the Support. Reduce the Harm" video series features Indigenous people talking about harm reduction and the impact of toxic drugs in their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Choose an individual video from the list or go to
