Helping Canadian Kids Through Drug Prevention
"It is our experience that if kids can be reached with a powerful message in their formative years it will impact on decisions they make regarding substance abuse," commented A Forever Recovery CEO Per Wickstrom. "While our role is to concentrate primarily on the treatment of and victory over drug abuse and alcoholism, we know that there is much more that we can do to remain a truly effective force in the battle against addiction. Any time that we can help, whether it's in Canada, Los Angeles or in our own backyard, we will extend our hand in solidarity."
The Canadian Don't Do Drugs Society is an incorporated Canadian registered charity that was founded in 1994 with the purpose of preparing, publishing and distributing information related to adolescent drug abuse and the preventative measures that can be taken to avoid it. They have developed and initiated outreach programs for and with young people who have been using or exhibiting the likelihood that they may use drugs. By cooperating with and seeking advice from medical and related professionals, the Society aims to promote and publicize abstinence from drug use among youth in any manner possible, and to influence the youth of Canada that "Smart Kids Don't Do Drugs".
