Highlight of Programs / Services:

  • SWAP works from a Harm Reduction philosophy. Harm reduction is based on dealing with the person “where they are at” – respecting, honouring and supporting their ability to make decisions. One of these decisions may be to use drugs or to engage in other higher-risk behaviours. People use substances for many social, economic, physical health, mental health and personal reasons.
  • Harm Reduction strategies encourage people to build their strengths and to gain a sense of confidence. They can help someone move to a state of control from one of chaos.
