NATIONAL ADDICTIONS AWARENESS WEEK
WORKING TOGETHER FOR WELLNESS
In Canada, for every ten individuals there is one
person suffering from some type of substance
disorder. As a nation we are all impacted by its
effects. Whether or not their disorder is visible or
hidden, we all know someone suffering. It may be
oneself, a colleague, a friend or a family member.
Addiction is not a choice; it is a serious health
condition that needs to be addressed. Join us
during National Addictions Awareness Week to
help reduce the stigma associated with substance
Each evening we will be combining comfort
