To mark National Addictions Awareness Week, which is taking place across Canada from November 14-20, 2011, Mr. Jacques Gourde, MP for Lotbinière-Chutes-de-la-Chaudière, made a statement today in the House of Commons.
Mr. Gourde highlighted the excellent work being done at Portage to help people free themselves from drug addiction. He also congratulated all the recent graduates of the program and those who have recently celebrated their one year anniversary, free of drugs. He commended them all on their determination – proof that with the necessary support, it is possible to rid oneself of the demons of substance abuse.
