Hello NNADAP and First Nations Community Addiction Workers

The Youth Solvent Addiction Committee (YSAC) is conducting a short community survey to determine the extent of sniffing that is still taking place in communities across Canada. YSAC is a network of residential treatment centres across Canada for youth (and young adult) who abuse solvent/inhalants. We appreciate you taking the time to tell us a little about the current solvent abuse situation in your community. The results will be used for program planning, to improve prevention efforts as well as to target information about the centres and the referral procedures. The survey is voluntary and results will be grouped by poprovince to ensure your idividual community anonimity.

If you choose to complete it, we will send you a community based solvent abuse prevention manual at your request. If you have questions about the survey, please contact Debra at ysac@shaw.ca or 306-382-0989 or email ysacsolventsurvey@gmail.com
