A Virtual Q & A Session for Parents and Caregivers

Teenage Substance Abuse


If you were interested in attending this session, please email us at info@windsoressexfamnet.ca and we will keep you in the loop when we have a future date.

Do you know or suspect your teen is using alcohol or drugs?  Have you noticed things with your teen or young adult such as:

  • Substance use has increased during Covid?
  • It’s impacting their schooling?
  • Seeing mood swings along with changes in behavior?
  • They have lost interest in activities they once enjoyed?
    Dropping old friends for new ones?
  • They’re acting: despondent or aggressive and out of character,
    sleeping more than usual, breaking rules, exhibiting physical
    changes like nose bleeds or weight loss?
  • Changes that are affecting the whole family?
  • You are wondering if this is just a phase, or if it’s becoming a problem?

If you are asking yourself any of these questions,
you may find answers at this session!

Join us for this virtual event with a mental health and addictions counsellor. They will provide insight into these behaviours and the recommendations parents or caregivers could take to mitigate the effects on the whole family. The session is  designed just for families and caregivers of young people who are using and/or abusing alcohol and drugs.


At this time, the My Home, My Choice organizing committee is currently POSTPONING the My Home, My Choice 2020 event. It will be rescheduled for another date. In the meantime, check out our My Home, My Choice page for resources created and collected by families for families.
