"I was in a really tough spot and didn't know where to turn. SafeLink Alberta provided me with the support and resources I needed to get through a difficult time in my life. They treated me with respect and compassion, and I'll always be grateful for the help they gave me."Anonymous
SafeLink Alberta prioritizes people first and uses a human rights-based, harm reduction model to provide all of our services. Our approach includes:
- Non-judgmental treatment that recognizes the dignity, compassion, and respect that every person deserves, regardless of their circumstance or condition.
- Evidence-based, feasible, and cost-effective practices aimed at preventing and reducing harm.
- Behaviour change seen as a gradual process, where individuals go through self-discovery and transition stages.
- Active involvement of people with lived and living experience and community stakeholders in shaping policies and practices that make sense.
- Focus on improving the quality of life and health outcomes for individuals and communities, rather than pushing for a cessation or abstinence approach.
- Recognition of the complex social factors that influence vulnerability.
- Empowering people to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
- Commitment to defending universal human rights.
