WHO WE ARE

A Whole-person Care Approach

A not-for-profit founded by passionate health care providers providing whole-person care and facilitating support for those who need it most.

Pathways to Recovery works to scale respectful, patient-centred care that improves the health of individuals and communities struggling with substance use health, complex mental health, and infectious diseases. Through strategic partnerships with organizations that model respect-based care, we are committed to providing an accessible, inclusive continuum of quality services and support to vulnerable, underserved populations along with their family, friends, and communities.

Why We Do It

The system wasn’t built for substance use disorders, together we have to build it

1 in 2 overdose-related deaths have a healthcare encounter within the 30 days prior

96% increase in opioid toxicity deaths during the first year of the pandemic

In 2021 there were approximately 20 deaths per day from opioid toxicity

Over 50% of injection drug use leads to Hepatitis C
