Finding help

If you or someone you know wants help to stop or reduce alcohol use, there is support available:

  • Talk to a nurse, doctor, mental health worker or social worker.
  • Call the Kamatsiaqtut Help Line (1-867-979-3333) Nunavut’s 24/7 suicide and crisis hotline.  
  • Talk to a supportive friend, family member or Elder.
  • Contact Alcoholics Anonymous - if there is one in the community. (For people who want to stop drinking or want support after they have quit drinking.)
  • Contact Al-Anon – if there is one in the community. (A group for families and friends of alcoholics.)
