Many Nova Scotians consume alcohol at safe levels. However, there are some whose behaviour is considered to be high-risk. To help ensure that those who choose to drink do so without harm, we have launched Canada's first provincial alcohol strategy.
Promoting better health means addressing addiction. We are improving our services and offering more programs to help Nova Scotians experiencing problems with alcohol and drug use. This includes drug-prevention curriculum for schools and provincial policies and programs to prevent and address problem gambling.
