What is CRISM?

The Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse (CRISM) is a national research consortium composed of 4 nodes distributed across Canada (Quebec-Maritimes, Ontario, Prairie, and British Columbia).

The CRISM provides a unique platform creating opportunities, favoring bilateral exchanges and collaborations between experts in the field of substance abuse and addiction care throughout Canada.

This national strategic initiative enables the generation of key interventional research-based evidences required to support the improvement of addiction care programs in Canada.

The Quebec-Maritimes Node

The CRISM’s Quebec-Maritimes Node (QMN) combines the expertise of researchers, clinicians, and knowledge users from Quebec and the Maritime provinces. We aim at identifying the specific needs and priorities of these provinces, and generating evidence-based knowledge according to real needs through research and collaborative projects.

We also contribute to the development of interventional research-based practices and policies with a Canada-wide perspective in mind, to ultimately improve quality of care and quality of life for all Canadians living with substance misuse.

The QMN members are working on multiple projects aimed at accelerating the transfer of scientific knowledge into better addiction treatment approaches, including both pharmaceutical and psychological interventions.
