Dopallies is a project that aims to engage people who inject or smoke drugs and live with HIV/AIDS or hepatitis C, as well as those at risk of being infected. Information and practice-sharing sessions are designed to encourage safer behaviours in order to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C.

Participants receive financial compensation for taking part in a session. In the context of their participation, they are progressively equipped with knowledge pertaining to prevention in order to be agents of change when interacting with their peers.

Dopamine allows me to meet people and break my isolation.

For me, these are workshops on topics that concern us and directly affect us, as well as individual experiences that enrich us.


I feel useful in my neighbourhood and Sainte-Catherine Street keeps looking prettier and prettier thanks to us.

It is a meeting point and exchange point that breaks my isolation. It’s warm, welcoming, helpful, and supporting me in my efforts. A privileged moment that I appreciate due to its discretion and effectiveness.

For me, Dopallies is a collection of relevant topics that help people on the street or drug users to deal with various issues that affect them.


Thank you for allowing us to do the Green Squad for many more years – we really care about it.

I like walking down Sainte-Catherine Street and seeing the completed tree squares. I’m so proud!

It allows me to resocialize and decompress as I have a tendency to isolate myself.


It was my first time volunteering with the Green Squad Green Brigade – I liked it so much that I want to do it again and again.

The Green Squad helps me keep my mind off using.

A source of information that is sometimes very useful in my daily life, an occasion to foster links with certain people, sharing without being judged… and I find it very informative.


I take part in Dopallies because it is a useful service for learning that has helped me to successfully change my behaviours. My way of talking with peers helps me stay focused on how to act safely. Prevention is important to me. Thank you.


I like when people from the neighbourhood come to us to talk to us, it shatters taboos and people do not judge us.
