Hosted by the BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU), BC ECHO on Substance Use builds on existing clinical partnerships to ensure optimal reach for knowledge dissemination, particularly in rural, remote, and Northern communities. BC ECHO on Substance Use is overseen by an interdisciplinary team of addiction experts representing different substance use organizations and partners across BC.
