Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

National Addictions Awareness Week

National Addictions Awareness Week (NAAW) highlights ways to address harms related to alcohol and other drugs. It provides an opportunity for people in Canada to learn more about prevention, talk about treatment and recovery, and share solutions.

This year, NAAW takes place from Nov. 20 to 26. The theme is A Community of Caring.

Show Us How Your Community Cares

Use the hashtags #CommunityCaring and #NAAW2022 on your social media posts during the week to show us the different ways your community is helping people who use substances or have a substance use disorder.

Resources for Communities that Care

During NAAW, we are sharing many of our resources that were developed with partners across Canada who care. These resources can be used to help inform others, initiate important conversations or assist individuals who use substances or have a substance use disorder on their wellness journey.
A complete list of resources will be posted on this page before the start of NAAW.

NAAW Promotional Materials

We are developing materials for partners and the public to use to help promote NAAW. These resources will be available on this page for use in early November 2022.
