ALAViDA TRAiL substance use management

ALAViDA Tired of missing out on Saturday because you overdid it on Friday?

Substance use is part of many people's lives: 27% of your coworkers reported drinking or using a substance. 66% of them said they would like to reduce or quit1

That’s where ALAViDA comes in.

Available for free for a limited time to faculty and staff at UBC, ALAViDA is on a mission to help people reduce their consumption, and regain control in their relationship with alcohol or substances. That process begins with a conversation with yourself. The following self-assessment is designed to help you determine what your relationship status with alcohol or a substance is, and what kind of help, if any, might be right for you. So answer honestly, and if you need us, we're here to help.

Take a break, answer the confidential self-assessment, and receive a Starbucks gift card*.
