2019 National Addictions Awareness Week is November 25 to December 1. For more information, visit National Addictions Awareness Week.
The national theme is Stigma Ends with Me.
Local events encourage individuals to learn more about alcohol and drug misuse, the potential harms associated with these activities, how to decrease stigma associated with misuse, and connect for help with mental health and addictions services.
Addressing mental health and addictions issues is complex, and it takes the efforts of many organizations, services and individuals working together to ensure that citizens with mental health and addictions issues have their needs met in the most appropriate and coordinated way. The Ministry of Health supports the recommendations of the Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan.
Alcohol, Drug and Addictions Resources are available to assist individuals, families, service providers, physicians and communities support those with mental health and addictions issues.
