Substance Use and Addiction Services Engagement Among Vulnerable Youth

In Greater Vancouver, the problem of youth substance use is generating unprecedented alarm in the context of an opioid overdose crisis. As attempts are made to develop a more comprehensive youth addiction services system locally, new research is urgently needed to delineate the complex individual, social, structural and environmental contexts that influence the effectiveness of different services, and to identify how these services can best be adapted to meet the unique needs of vulnerable youth. Our study integrates participatory action and qualitative research methods, and will inform ongoing efforts to improve the youth addiction services system in Greater Vancouver.
