Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research

The Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR), formerly the Centre for Addictions Research of BC, at the University of Victoria, is a network of individuals and groups dedicated to the study of substance use and addiction. CISUR seeks to support community-wide efforts to promote health and reduce harm.

CISUR publishes research bulletins and educational resources. These are designed to help health professionals support individuals and communities deal with issues related to substance use and addiction.

CISUR also publishes a range of information and self-help materials. These publications help people better understand, prevent and manage substance use and related issues. The goal is happier, healthier lives, whether using substances or not.
