Substance Use Liaison
Substance Use Liaison


The Substance Use Liaison team provides support and services for youth who are affected by substance use in any aspect of their lives. They will provide individual supports, classroom messaging, and staff training. They work with many community partners to provide youth with wraparound services.

Our Mandate: To provide consistent, relevant drug services throughout the district supporting and fostering wellness.


The SUL program is a Safe Schools initiative that meaningfully addresses the subject of substance use through conversational best practices. SUL services aim to provide education, prevention tools and early intervention. The team encourages positive change, the development of self-assessment skills, and bridges students and their families to specialized resources.


Students who are determined to be in possession of, or under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at school, will be referred to the SUL program and required to meet with a team member for a minimum of three sessions. The referral is made at the time of suspension so to best support the student around the incident. A letter indicating the student's referral to the SUL program will be sent to caregivers by their administrator.  

Students can also self-refer via staff at their school, likewise staff who are concerned about a student's substance misuse can present them with the opportunity to meet with a SUL. This is a voluntary service outside of the three-meeting protocol. 


SUL's work closely with both school and community-based teams in order to provide comprehensive case management.
