MAP’s Harm Reduction Researcher, Mary Walsh, has produced 2 documents that have proven invaluable to the program’s development. MAP hopes that this information could be helpful to others who are interested in harm reduction in general, or implementing managed alcohol as part of their own service offerings.
The first report focuses on “scattered-site” (ie. outreach-based) model MAPs across the country, as well as learnings from local community members with lived expertise of substance use and harm reduction. The second report hones in on residential-based MAPs, examining the supportive housing model of safe alcohol dispensing.
