Loss Due to Substance Use

Gone Too Soon Grief Handbook

The BC Bereavement Helpline is committed to supporting anyone in BC who is grieving the loss of a loved one due to substance use. We are currently in the process of developing new programs to support those bereaved by substance use and we hope to get funding soon.

The BC Centre on Substance Use has developed a very helpful grief guidebook entitled Gone Too Soon.
