Spunt & Carin Gives Back: Méta d’Âme

On Friday, December 22, 2023 Isabelle chose the charity for the Spunt & Carin Gives Back jean day. Her chosen foundation was Méta d’Âme, a peer association for people who use or have used opioids, acting through a harm reduction approach that is based in Montreal.

The organization’s mission is to promote the improvement of the mental health of their clientele, and to defend their interests by, among other things, representing them and being their voice.

With a day center and 43 community housing units located in Montreal, Méta d’Âme offers services and activities that are designed to promote the autonomy of those who are recovering from opioid addiction or have recovered and to support them in their social and economic reintegration, leading to improved living conditions in all respects.

Addiction can be an isolating and feel imprisoning for anyone experiencing this in their life. Méta d’Âme aims to create community spaces to encourage recovery and sobriety. Méta d’Âme also offer classes and information sessions for friends and family members of individuals who struggle with opioid addiction and for civilians who wish to know more and be prepared in the event of an overdose.
