The constant social pressures and demands placed on youth can lead to the experimentation of substances and other potentially addictive behaviours. For this reason, it is important that youth have a place that they feel comfortable to discuss their various life stressors and learn healthy coping strategies that they can implement into their daily living.

This group will provide education regarding substance addictions as well as behavioural based addiction, which may include, for instance, gambling and shopping.  The aim is to empower participants to make healthier choices in dealing with pressures and influences. Participants will develop an understanding of the process of addiction and the meaning of recovery by exploring both harm reduction and abstinence based approaches. Participants will also begin looking at anger and stress management techniques, as well as how depression and anxiety play very specific roles in the addiction process.
