- A non-judgmental approach to program delivery that treats everyone with compassion and respect, regardless of circumstance and condition;
- Program delivery focused on enhancing the quality of life for individuals and communities alike;
- Empowering substance users to be the primary agents in reducing the harms of their substance use;
- Program delivery that recognizes the complex social factors that influence vulnerability to substance use and substance related harm, including poverty, social inequality, discrimination and trauma;
- Commitment to defending universal human rights.
