If you feel like you or someone you know might need help dealing with an addiction, it is important that you reach out and talk to someone.
You can talk to a trusted friend or family member, a school counsellor, a teacher, a social worker, a youth worker, or a community/addictions counsellor. Any of these people in your community can help you to get help.
If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone in person, you can call a help line. The help lines listed below are free and anonymous – the helper on the other end of the telephone will not know who you are or where you are calling from.
