This webinar provides a framework for understanding a variety of addictive behaviours that may affect youth. These include substance use/abuse, gaming, gambling and pornography. While some youth are merely experimenting, for others, their use quenches a much larger unmet need and a pattern of use and abuse develops. This webinar is a companion to Addictions and Youth: Creating Opportunities for Change.
