Educate, Empower and Engage Canadians

  • We educate parents and trusted adults with evidence-based information
  • We empower parents with the practical tools to help them engage in open and honest conversations about substance use with their pre-teens and teens.
  • We raise the public’s awareness of the important issues affecting youth and substance use, collaborating with advertising agencies and media partners to create drug education/prevention campaigns that run on TV, radio, print, and digital media across Canada.
  • We inform parents and trusted adults about the increased risk of illegal street drugs and problematic opioid use by youth.
  • We encourage parental engagement in:
    • the prevention of substance use by youth; 
    • intervention – reducing the harm drug use can cause to youth: 
    • supporting the treatment of their child’s problematic substance use and recovery.
