Leading Change - A Peer Support Approach to Methamphetamine Recovery

About the Program

Leading Change is a 8 week program intended for adults struggling with a crystal meth addiction. This program will guide participants in identifying healthier behaviours through the use of peer support, body mapping, and CBT. This program is free of charge and dinner will be provided each week. Bus transportation subsidies are available.

What is Peer Support?

MDAM brings people together to share their lived experience; to offer direct support, strategies, and understanding in a non-judgemental and respectful environment. Peer Support is person-centred, strength-based, solution-focused, behavioural, and focused on empowerment.


What is Body Mapping?

Body mapping helps people tell their stories through a guided exercise that combines storytelling, art, visualization, group discussion, and self-reflection. It can provide a better appreciation of complex situations, experiences and thoughts of individuals.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a therapeutic option that facilitates the rethinking of drug use and supports the opportunity to learn better behaviors and coping skills in order to avoid further harm. CBT teaches individuals how to recognize and avoid triggers; cope with cravings, stress, and other issues; view their drug abuse in a way that allows them to see its negative effects; and change their thinking and behavioral processes.
