View of Prevention:   Actions taken to prevent the development and reduce the harms associated with alcohol, other drug, and gambling problems with a specific focus on increasing protective factors and reducing risk factors associated with the development of these problems. Based on Health Canada's Drug Strategy
Activities:
  • Coalition Connect event- The sixth annual Coalitions Connect Towards a Culture of Moderation brought together 114 representatives from 42 of the 67 community drug coalitions, Alberta Health Services zone and provincial staff. Participants were supported to move towards a culture of moderation through the use of effective education and marketing strategies, community policy and partnerships and regulatory practices at a local level.
  • Community  Addiction Prevention Projects. Twelve projects selected for this year will bring community partners together to identify, plan and implement projects that support addiction prevention in support of this year’s theme; “Alcohol:  Toward a Culture of Moderation”  Priority was given to projects focusing on prevention and reducing alcohol related harms through one or more of the following strategies:
  1. Promote healthy perceptions, attitudes and behaviors toward alcohol use
  2. Encourage social responsibility in the service of beverage alcohol in the community
  3. Foster the development of context-specific alcohol policies (school, workplace, postsecondary, municipal)
  4. Create or expand harm reduction programs for alcohol
