• Drug Awareness Week
Nov 02, 2016

Drug Awareness Week is one of the cornerstones of a far-reaching information and awareness-building campaign launched by the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) to protect young people against the risks of drinking, drug use and gambling.

 The 29th edition of Drug Awareness Week will run from November 20 to 26, 2016.

The MSSS has developed a number of tools to inform and raise awareness among young people between the ages of 13 and 24 to encourage them to get involved in their communities and to get active in order to protect them against the risks of drinking, drug use and gambling.

 We sent a notebook to the communities. Please consult this notebook to learn more about the activities you can do with your clients during Drug Awareness Week.

For more information on addiction, please consult the MSSS website.
