Addiction Awareness Week

 

Each year, the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse joins organizations across the country in observing National Addictions Awareness Week. Led nationally by Canadian Centre Substance Abuse, National Addictions Awareness Week highlights issues and solutions to help address alcohol- and other drug-related harm. It provides an opportunity for Canadians to learn more about substance abuse​​ prevention, to talk about treatment and recovery, and to bring forward solutions for change. In conjunction with National Addictions Awareness Week, an information session called “It Takes A Village: Protecting our Youth from Substance Abuse”, was held last night at the W.C Miller collegiate in Altona. The goal of this event was to provide parents with information to help their children choose a drug-free lifestyle, and to provide strategies for those who are already using. This event was open to parents, community youth workers or anyone who cares about young people. Today we were blessed to have Tracy Nickel a recovering alcoholic in the studio to tell us a bit about her journey with addiction. Tracy continues her recovery by helping others in a similar situation, she invites anyone with addiction to contact her through facebook or on a personal basis if you know her. Tracey will be setting up a page soon as well. Tracy is dedicated to helping others and has just taken on a new role helping youth with addiction within southern Manitoba.
