For enhanced stability

Managed Alcohol Program

This pilot project reduces supervised housing obstacles and the acute, chronic, and social harms of severe alcohol addiction. This program provides an option of services-housing with a Managed Alcohol Program for eight homeless Indigenous men with severe alcohol addiction.

Program objectives for residents are:

  • Offer a space that promotes stability and better quality of life.
  • Improve access to primary health services.
  • Surround participants with significant community support.
  • Connect or reconnect participants to their Indigenous cultures.

The house is situated in downtown Montreal, with eight furnished, private rooms, three washrooms, a shared kitchen, a patio, and a game room.

Program advantages include:

  • A private room that participants can lock if they choose.
  • Reduction in hospital visits.
  • Increased socialization with roommates who live in the house.
  • Stabilization of alcohol consumption.
  • Staff on-site 24/7 can provide urgent care.
  • A shared home where it is possible to (re)connect with our Indigenous roots.
