Drug Awareness Strategy

Welcome to our We Need to Talk series

Adolescence is a time of exploration for youth. One of the many behaviours that may be adopted by young people is substance use. Generally, youth use substances to express their independence and this should not automatically be construed as "substance abuse". The majority of adolescents who use substances do not progress to problematic use or dependency.
