About

The DRUG USERS ADVOCACY LEAGUE (DUAL) is an independent group of drug consumers, ex-consumer and their allies who fight for the rights of those that use drugs, and our community, in the Ottawa area.  Though we do not condone nor condemn drug use, we believe in complete harm reduction, and aim to improve the safety and education of and towards drug consumers.  Also, we aim to end the horrible stigma that drug users face.  DUAL is non-judgemental and our direction will be chosen by the population that uses drugs.  Our purpose is dual – to ensure the safety of those that consume drugs and the community-at-large, and to ensure that the people that consume drugs can do so with the proper education and opportunities to stay healthy.

  1. On Friday mornings between 930 and 11 30 I wander down to Murray St 216(I think) I’m not the sharpest needle in the box on Fridays anyways I Find myself at the Dual drop by having a coffee Im not in the best mood but I know no one at this drop in will judge, scrutinize or comment on why either my shirt is on inside out or that my mitts don’t match. I am safe here and they usually have cream instead of powdered coffee mate .I just wanted to thank the extraordinary league for allowing the space to be safe Thanks
