Manitoba Mobile Team To Increase Community Capacity and Access
Addiction is not a crime
Addiction is a health issue
- No one becomes an addict by choice.
- An addict is an injured person.
- Let us heal with dignity their injury
- Uproot the cause of addiction.
The Manitoba Mobile Team to Increase Community Capacity and Access (MATICCA) is:
Addiction Does Not Discriminate; It Is Not A Choice
Our approach is one that focuses on working with people without judgement or discrimination
Encouraging an anti-stigma dialogue that meets people where they are at.
Our Mothers and Fathers
Because no matter where that is, or what substance they use, these people, who are our brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, mothers and fathers, are still people.
In the Spirit of Community Capacity Building and Community Partnerships
the team is introducing the pilot project:
- To community organizations, programs and services.
- Awareness and partnerships of mutually beneficial services with stakeholders in the community will increase self-reliance and quality of life for families and community.
