The Evidence

You’ve found The Evidence, a new monthly podcast created and produced by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA).  ​

Hosted by Lee Arbon and Amanda Deseure, this new series dives into the leading research and current trends surrounding substance use and addiction in Canada. We investigate and review the evidence on alcohol, cannabis, ​opioids, stigma and more. Each month, The Evidence will feature guests from CCSA​ and those working in the community. We combine CCSA's knowledge and evidence with people who face substance use disorders every day in their personal and professional lives. Their knowledge inspires the conversation​.  


​Be sure to follow CCSA's twitter feed to find out when the next episode of The Evidence is available.

The Evidence wants to hear from you. We encourage listeners who have questions or comments, or who would like to suggest a guest or topic to e-mail us at podcast@ccsa.ca.​
