Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Youth is a time of significant growth and change. It is often when risky behaviours take place and substance use begins. These behaviours can result in consequences such as injuries, car crashes, school difficulties and relationship problems. Understanding youth’s needs is essential for providing them with guidance and support. For these reasons, CCSA conducts research, shares knowledge and provides targeted materials to support evidence-based decisions and actions for addressing youth and substance use.
