Syilx Wellbeing: Nation Drug Forum


The Syilx Nation Drug Forum is an annual event to create space for sharing of information, resources, tools, stories and personal experiences related to drug and alcohol use. This will be the fourth Nation Drug Forum in response to the opioid drug crisis and will focus on bringing awareness to overdose. This will be a space for meaningful discussion around what is needed for the Nation going forward; capacity building as well as healing – these are integral elements to overall Syilx well-being which is the main objective of the ONA wellness program. We want to explore the personal experiences of people, families, and communities in the Nation and focus on what the needs are in moving toward wider opportunities for healing. Addiction and overdose is a complex issue that requires complex attention. We want to bring together Nation members, workers, and partners to continue meaningful conversations around addressing needs and creating healing.

This event is for Syilx Nation members and community members only.

Due to COVID-19 the Drug Forum will be completely virtual this year via GoToMeeting. You will need access to a computer, tablet or smart phone to attend the virtual Drug Forum. A confirmation email will be sent to you before the virtual Drug Forum with the links and instructions on how to join the meeting.
