People have been using tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and other drugs for years.
Substance use is complex and has the potential to both help or harm. Everyone’s relationship with substances is unique and individual.
> Do you ever think about your relationship with substances?
> Do you ever question your attitudes and actions related to substances?
> Do you know a youth in your life who could benefit from information and support?
Some people who use substances believe the substance itself is the main problem. They think, “If this drug didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have a problem!” or “I am only using it this one time.”
It’s important to note: Substance use is about more than the substance.
