At Breakaway Community Services, we are dedicated to providing support and treatment that includes all aspects of our client’s lives and situations. We have always operated from a social justice and harm reduction approach, which forms the philosophical basis for all our work, in reducing harm and enhancing the health of our clients.



We are strongly committed to providing innovative services from a harm reduction, anti-oppression, and trauma-informed approach.


Harm Reduction

Social Justice

Trauma Informed


Breakaway is committed to making sure our community is not struggling alone with the challenges of the new coronavirus as we all face an unprecedented global crisis. People who rely on our services need your help now more than ever.

Although we’ve had to suspend all our group services, we continue to provide one-on-one therapy sessions online and over the phone. We may be far apart but we’ll never let our clients feel that help is not close.

We can’t do it without you. Please give today to make sure individuals and families impacted by increased isolation always have a place to turn to.


I will miss you all!

We stand firmly with the Black community and our colleagues to condemn all forms of racism. When we commit to pushing back against anti-black racism, we are also condemning all forms of racism towards all members of the BIPOC community. Read more
