What was this survey about?
This survey explored peoples’ experiences with all available NWT addictions recovery supports/services. This included types of services/supports that residents accessed; any challenges or barriers in accessing them; what worked; and what needs to be strengthened.
Results from the survey will help us meet the Government of Northwest Territories mandate for supporting the health and well-being of residents by strengthening peer support and increasing the number and variety of culturally-respectful, community based mental wellness and addictions recovery programs, including aftercare.
The survey is an initial approach to engagement around addictions recovery in the NWT, and its results will inform future additional engagement activities such as targeted focus groups.
When was the survey open?
The survey was open between February 15 and March 31, 2021.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Your feedback will help inform the development of a Territorial level report to be used in the continuous quality improvement of the mental wellness and addictions recovery system, including the need for an NWT treatment facility and a Territorial Alcohol Strategy.
Where can I find results?
- We will post a “What We Heard” report in July 2021.
