Substance Use

Party Safer

The Healthy School Department developed the Party Safer- Prom Toolkit, which takes a harm reduction approach to reduce the social and health harms related to alcohol and substance use


As the opioid crisis in Canada continues to escalate, youth need information to make informed decisions about harm-reduction substance use strategies versus an abstinence only approach.


It is important for youth to be informed of what is known about the harms alcohol use during adolescence can increase the risk of negative health outcomes and social harm.
