Addiction control

Assistance tailored to addiction control

Supporting communities and organizations

With regard to the fight against addictions, we support First Nations communities and organizations in the development and implementation of action plans. Our dedicated support to health and social services workers aims to help them implement effective prevention and treatment strategies to reduce addictions.

Tobacco control

We support communities and organizations as part of the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy, both in terms of smoking prevention and cessation and protection against exposure to second-hand smoke. Our team provides smoking cessation training to resource people as well as tools, such as the tobacco control toolkit.

We are also working on the development of awareness tools on the risks and effects associated with the use of drugs and other substances, all from a harm-reduction perspective. This approach, rather than advocating abstinence at all costs, suggests ways to make consumption less dangerous or harmful, both for the individual as well as for those around them.

Meetings and recommendations

We coordinate meetings of the network of treatment centres and the regional working group of NNADAP workers. We create platforms, such as forums, which allow the resource persons concerned to obtain the most recent information on the subject and to discuss the best practices to be put in place. Our organization is also called upon to recommend specialists who can offer advice aimed at various fields, such as screening and intervention.
