The Canadian Network of Substance Abuse and Allied Professionals publishes its professional standards on this website. Here you can review the technical and behavioural competencies identified as necessary to the substance abuse workforce. How do professionals in this field ensure quality client care? As a client or the parent of a client, you should know what to expect–and what to demand.

CNSAAP’s site also heralds the”first-ever Canadian standards for youth substance abuse prevention” from the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA).  These take the form of Building on Our Strengths: Canadian Standards for School-based Youth Substance Abuse Prevention-A Guide for Education and Health Personnel. The standards were developed as a resource for those in the field to help strengthen school-centred prevention efforts across Canada. Get acquainted with these standards and be an advocate for effective prevention in your child’s school.
