A lifeline for parents, partners and loved ones of those battling substance use.

At the core the Addiction Crisis Tool Kit, which puts a world-class, proven therapy directly into the hands of those who need it most: families and loved ones of those battling addiction. Built in collaboration with New York’s Center for Motivation and Change and with financial support from The TELUS Fund, the Crisis Tool Kit teaches how to communicate in a manner that motivates the substance user to change, while reducing family fear and stress. The Tool kit offers a range of scenarios. Click on one that sounds like your problem and begin an interactive journey of discovery that offers guidance when and where you need it. Dr. Jeff Foote and Dr. Carrie Wilkens, co-founders of the Center for Motivation and Change, deliver advice and practical tools in a warm empathetic tone that empowers families.
