Drug And Alcohol Prevention & Education Programs In Ontario

The province of Ontario has one of the densest populations in Canada, and many of these people live in the Greater Toronto Area, and because of these dense populations, there will always be issues with drug and alcohol abuse in the surrounding communities and towns. Throughout the province there are many different substance abuse treatment facilities all of which provide different means of drug and alcohol treatment, but also include drug education and prevention programs for addicts, sober individuals, families, teens, men, and women. Drug Rehab Services has provided just over eight different locations where drug and alcohol prevention and education are provided within the local communities. Drug education has been provided in local schools throughout the province for quite some time, and youth and young children are given useful knowledge and skills to stay away from drugs. One of the important steps is teaching people what drugs are, and how they impact the person physically and mentally. Many people are unaware of what legal and illegal drugs can do to a person, especially when they are abused and taken recreationally. Prescription drug abuse occurs quite frequently in the province as many people become addicted to prescription drugs because of misuse or long-term use of the drugs. These prevention programs and education seminars provide the needed tools and information for people to make smart decisions.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
