Alcohol, Cannabis or Other Drugs

Alcohol, Cannabis and Other Drugs

Programming Information

We use a harm-reduction model to educate students on the short-term and long-term effects of alcohol, cannabis and other substances. We also educate students on safer partying practices, serving sizes and harm reduction methods and guidelines when using substances. In our programming we often use interactive goggles to simulate the visual effects of alcohol and cannabis to spark discussion around alcohol and drug use.
