We aspire for a caring, inclusive and safe community that works collaboratively to reduce and eliminate the harms associated with drugs and alcohol.


In late 2015, the Middlesex-London Health Unit, in collaboration with community partners, began a process to develop a long-term community drug and alcohol strategy for London and Middlesex County based on a "Four Pillars" approach of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and enforcement, and solidified through a foundation of collaboration.

Our goal is to implement and evaluate a comprehensive drug and alcohol strategy to reduce problematic substance use and harm that reflects the needs of the entire community, through the use of a person centred, equity-focused approach based on the pillars of prevention, harm reduction, treatment and enforcement.
