CAMH Commends Passage of Toronto Drug Strategy
December 14, 2005  (Toronto) - The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is extremely pleased with Toronto City Council's bold decision to pass the Toronto Drug Strategy in full. The work we have done over the past two years with Toronto Public Health, community groups and other stakeholders has paid off; Toronto can now move forward with a new, comprehensive approach to a serious health and social issue. 
"This Strategy has looked at the latest international research and evidence and made recommendations that strike the right balance between the pragmatic and the compassionate," said Gail Czukar, CAMH's EVP Policy, Education and Health Promotion today. "Toronto City Council is to be congratulated for passing such a progressive plan."
The policy's 66 recommendations are designed to prevent drug problems developing in young people, improve drug treatment, enforce the law, and reduce the harms related to  people's use of alcohol and other drugs. CAMH looks forward working with the City of Toronto and many others in the implementation of the new Toronto Drug Strategy in the New Year.
