A Message from Our Executive Director

As we move into 2019, this is the perfect time to reflect on our work in 2018.

new year's clock moving from 2018 to 2019ASYR is committed to offering high quality programs and services to individuals affected by addictions. You are at the centre of our work. We are committed to working alongside you in your recovery. Our programs and services expanded in 2018 through individual and group counselling, case management and peer support.

Last year, ASYR was chosen as the lead agency for the opioid strategy within the Central Local Health Integration Network (Central LHIN). Working with 5 partner agencies as a Wellness Collaborative, we were successful in increasing access to case management, peer support and counselling services across the Central LHIN. We look forward to continuing this collaborative in 2019.

Without the support of our funders and community partners, we would not be able to do our work. Thank you to the Central LHIN, the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and the Municipality of York Region for your continued financial support. Our community partners are essential to our work. These partnerships have provided us with the ability to increase our reach into the community.

A special thank you to our Staff and Board of Directors. Your hard work and commitment to serving people affected by addictions is much appreciated.

And to you, our clients, thank you for reaching out to us. Our staff want to see you succeed in achieving your goals. Your ideas and suggestions on how we can make your experience even better is important to us. Don’t hesitate to tell us how we are doing.

On behalf of the Board and Staff at ASYR, best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!
