Cannabis Substitution of Alcohol as a Component of Managed Alcohol Programs: Pilot Intervention and Evaluation

Funding body

Health Canada (Substance Use and Addictions Program)


This project will pilot and evaluate a cannabis substitution (CS) intervention as a component of Managed Alcohol Programs (MAPs) for people with severe alcohol use disorders experiencing unstable housing. Specifically, this pilot will support the development of CS programs in BC and Ontario and establish whether these kinds of programs contribute to significant health, safety and well-being improvements of participants. Results from this program will then be used to generate recommendations for the further refinement and scale up opportunities for these kinds of projects.
