Gone Too Soon: Navigating Grief and Loss as a result of Substance Use

This handbook was written by the BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU) in collaboration with the BC Bereavement Helpline (BCBH) and the BC Coroners Service.

The handbook was created with the guidance of Leslie McBain and Jennifer Woodside, who generously shared their stories and experiences and what they wish they had known in the immediate days after they lost children to drug-related harms, as well as what they wished they had known in the months and years after.

The handbook covers emotions and responses you may experience, tips to take care of yourself, practical considerations in the wake of this tragedy, and stories from people who have lost loved ones.


Please note BCCSU has temporary paused shipments for this resouce as a direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
