Nov 15-21: National Addictions Awareness Week

ADDICTION SERVICES OF THAMES VALLEY MARKS
NATIONAL ADDICTIONS AWARENESS WEEK – BECAUSE ADDICTION MATTERS

From November 15–21, 2015, Addiction Services of Thames Valley (ADSTV) will join with the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) and addiction prevention, treatment and recovery organizations across the country to mark National Addictions Awareness Week (NAAW).

This year’s theme is “Addiction Matters,” drawing attention to substance abuse as a chronic health issue that impacts individuals, families and communities across Canada. We see firsthand the fear and shame due to stigma and discrimination in our society that can be felt as the people we care about struggle with substance use disorder.

A large part of any solution involves addressing head on this stigma associated with substance abuse. This disorder does not discriminate. Yet many still believe it is a moral failing and discriminate against those with a substance use disorder, which may prevent our family, friends, neighbours and colleagues from seeking the help they need.

Did you know? In Canada, substance abuse overall costs $40 billion every year and has negative impacts on the healthcare system, public safety and the economy.

Led nationally by CCSA, NAAW highlights issues and solutions to help address alcohol- and other drug-related harms. It provides an opportunity for Canadians to learn more about substance abuse prevention and to talk about treatment and recovery. Together, we continue to bring forward solutions that inform policy and change practices.

“Addiction Services of Thames Valley is proud to stand with CCSA and community partners to reinforce that addiction matters — to people in London, St. Thomas, Woodstock and all across Canada,” said Linda Sibley. “Addiction Services of Thames Valley works to address the many harms of substance abuse, and bring hope to the lives of those with substance use disorders.”

As part of National Addictions Awareness Week ADSTV will be presenting a workshop titled “Staged Screening and Assessment – Enchancing Access to Appropriate Care” at the Issues of Substance Conference in Montreal this week.

We are also celebrating National Addictions Awareness Week by hosting three separate Stage for Change concerts.

“Addiction negatively impacts lives and removes from our communities those who would otherwise be contributing to their families, working, volunteering or studying,” said Rita Notarandrea, CCSA’s Chief Executive Officer. “The good news is that addiction is preventable and treatable, and recovery is an attainable reality for many. Together, we turn evidence into action to reduce the harms experienced by those we care about — this is at the heart of what we do every day at CCSA.”

Long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is both achievable and sustainable when it is based on the evidence. Canadians in all provinces and territories have a fundamental right to access high-quality, consistent prevention, treatment and recovery support services — because addiction matters to every one of us, and recovery is real.
