This program provides subsidized transitional housing with weekly support offered by the Addiction Supportive Housing counsellor. Apartment units are fully furnished and are equipped with basic home essentials. The ASH worker works closely with other Addiction Services counsellors and other community professionals.
The Addiction Supportive Housing Program (ASH) is offered by New Directions for Alcohol, Drug and Gambling Problems in partnership with Community Connections Housing and Support.
This program is for individuals 16 and older, at risk of homelessness, who are attempting to reduce or eliminate harms associated with substance use and who are able to live independently with outreach support. Our clients must have a source of income through employment or social service supports (Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program).
Prior to being considering for the ASH program, clients will first be connected with an addiction counsellor at New Directions for assessment.
The ASH program provides subsidized transition housing for up to 364 days with weekly support offered by the ASH counsellor. Appointments occur in office and in home. Clients attend the ASH support group weekly. Apartment units come fully furnished and are equipped with basic home essentials (dishes, cutlery etc.)
