INTEGRATE. EMPOWER. HEALTH.

We envision a world where all individuals affected by substance use disorder have access to the support they need when seeking help, without stigma or discrimination.

The Community Addictions Peer Support Association (CAPSA) is a nonprofit organization of people affected by substance use disorder. We are located in Ottawa, Canada.

We strive to empower individuals impacted by substance use disorder by providing opportunities to integrate into the broader community through peer support initiatives and community engagement projects. We support all pathways to increased health and endeavour to collaborate with other organizations that provide services for those in need of help.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all individuals affected by addiction have access to the support they need when seeking help, without stigma or discrimination.

A world that is aware of the underlying causes of addiction, and actively works towards reducing their impact on people in our communities.

A world where recovery-focused services and supports are based on collaboration and partnership.

A world where communities are celebrated for their perseverance and commitment to recovery.

We endeavour to engage the broader community by building partnerships with local, provincial and national organizations and raising awareness through the #StigmaEndsWithMe campaign.
