Our Programs

Education

The Society is committed to furthering the public’s knowledge and understanding of addictions as a disease. This involves developing an extensive outreach program including education and awareness sessions targeting, but not limited to, workplaces, health providers, schools and government agencies.

Treatment

People who lack the resources to access appropriate treatment may be eligible to receive sponsorship when they meet the Cedars Society criteria for support. Financial Help can be extended to people and their families to ensure access to suitable treatment programs.

Research

Into the causes of addiction and the finest treatment programs is critical to long term success of eradicating addictions. As resources permit, the Society will dedicate funds for research into the causes, effects and treatment of addictions and substance abuse.
The Society is an outcome based organization. Metrics will be developed to measure its work in education, financial support and research to ensure that resource allocations and funding decisions are evidence based and donations are being used effectively.
