Substance Use Health is a lens that frames substance use in relation to a spectrum encompassing non-use, beneficial uses, occasional risks or harms, use that has ongoing or understood harms and consequences, and substance use disorders. It encompasses harm reduction to promote health in relation to using substances. Working with people to support their priorities with regard to Substance Use Health means a) prioritizing self-determined health goals as the primary service success outcome, b) removing barriers to care, including intersecting forms of stigma, and c) facilitating access to social determinants of health for those with inadequate access. Substance Use Health is increasingly being integrated as an essential component of health equity actions within organizations and at the point of care.
