Astra assists Fraser Valley youth who would like to change their relationship with alcohol and/or drugs through outreach and individual counselling.

Program Features

Astra staff will provide outreach substance use services to you that are based on your goals and needs. We work with you to make a plan, and together we will regularly review it. We will support you in meeting your goals. You may want to work towards a healthy body, improving emotional health, family/significant relationships, friends, education, employment, legal issues, or housing. We can talk with you about harm reduction, using less, or stopping using.

Program Details


Youth between 13 and 24 who want to change their relationship with alcohol and/or drugs and are not able to access their local Community Substance Use Services.
People over 19 may be referred to adult substance use services, if that is a better fit.
