Recently, the Lighthouse of Cape Breton and Undercurrent Youth Centre released a video called "Faces of Addiction" (check it out below) which shares stories of how addiction and substance use has impacted and changed the lives of many in the community.
More than raising awareness of the issue, the video pushes for change, but in a unique way ... by putting the attention on future generations and addiction prevention. As David Sawler, director of the Lighthouse/Undercurrent Centre stated "We’re so swamped with dealing with addiction that we don’t have any time left to keep people out of addiction ... We’re fighting a losing battle if we’re only dealing with addicts. There has to be some kind of focus on lowering the amount kids and youth getting into addiction.”
