triOS JOINS CCSA TO MARK ADDICTIONS AWARENESS WEEK
From November 13–19, triOS College Business Technology Healthcare, Kitchener campus 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) under the theme “Addiction Matters.”
Led by the CCSA every November, NAAW highlights important issues and solutions to help reduce the harms of alcohol and other drugs on Canadian society, and provides all Canadians the opportunity to learn more about prevention, treatment and recovery.
This year, a social media campaign hosted by @CCSACanada will share daily facts on marijuana, alcohol, and substance use prevention and treatment under the hashtag #NAAW.
Towards the end of the week, the conversation will shift to opioids to coincide with Canada’s Opioid Conference and Summit, which takes place in Ottawa on November 18 and 19. We support the summit’s objective of taking meaningful action on the opioid crisis, a complex health and social issue that impacts all Canadians.
A large part of any solution involves addressing head on the stigma associated with problematic substance use. This disorder does not discriminate. Yet many still believe it is a moral failing, which might prevent our family, friends, neighbours and colleagues from seeking the help they need.
“triOS College is proud to stand with CCSA and community partners to reinforce that addiction matters to people in The Region of Waterloo and all across Canada,” said Stuart Bentley, President. “triOS College works to address the many harms of problematic substance use, and to bring hope to the lives of those with substance use disorders.”
On Wednesday, November 16th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. triOS College, Kitchener Campus will be hosting an Addictions Awareness Expo. Over 20 organizations in our region will be represented at the Expo and will provide valuable information about the resources available in our community. There are two scheduled presentations with guest speakers from the Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation and the Ontario Addiction Treatment Centre.
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.
