Objective: To prevent addiction of other drugs such as cannabis, over-the-counter, prescription drugs and other illicit drugs. We aim to increase students’ self-efficacy to make informed decisions regarding their drug use through individual education and outreach programs (educational presentations, events, displays).
AOD consultations (vaping, nicotine, cannabis, prescription drugs, etc.) consist of a 30-60 minute one-on-one confidential appointment. Please call 949-824-9355 to make an appointment.
