The goals of this program are to provide support, referrals, and alcohol and drug prevention programming to Indigenous youth ages 13-24 years old who want to create positive change in their lives. The A & D Counsellor works to ensure that youth feel safe to talk about and explore issues related to alcohol and drug use, including learning about the effects and dependency on alcohol and drugs.

This program is delivered in partnership with the Britannia Community Centre.
