Drug And Alcohol Prevention & Education Programs In Nova Scotia
In the province of Nova Scotia, there are just over five different locations where drug education and prevention are provided to families, adults, and youth in all of the local communities throughout the province. These services are located in Halifax, Eskasoni, Kentville, and New Glasgow and are all offered through different organizations, some of which are drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Drug prevention and education programs in Nova Scotia put focus on helping teens, women, and men in many different ways and through much different means. Women in the province are given knowledge about drugs and how they can affect a woman, and how easily it is for women to become involved in the sex trade because of drug and alcohol abuse. There are drug rehabilitation facilities available to help treat only women, and help them regain control of his or her life through effective treatment methods, but drug education and prevention are the first step in helping women stay far from drugs and everything that can come with it. These prevention programs are also very effective in helping teens, and young children gain the knowledge and information they need to stay away from drugs and especially know how to handle the situation where they may be offered drugs and learn how to say no.
