The holiday season can bring wonderful times with many celebrations to be had, family and friends all coming together. For the staff at Narconon Trois-Rivieres this time of year especially is all about helping those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions, and part of this is effective drug and alcohol education. “With this new PSA we wanted people to see not only the good the holiday season can bring, but also the devastating impact drinking and driving can have on the individual and their loved ones,” commented JF Dubreuil, Director of Promotion and Marketing at Narconon Trois-Rivieres.
Drinking and driving impacts people all over the world and can tend to be even more devastating around this time of year. The consequences when caught driving under the influence are quite severe, and when another person is hurt or even killed because of it, everyone’s life is flipped upside down. “Unfortunately this is a very real part of alcohol addiction,” said Mr. Dubreuil. “It does not take much to affect your ability to operate a vehicle and make rational decisions. Our counsellors here speak with families every day looking to help a loved one whom is addicted to alcohol.”

Narconon Trois-Rivieres offers a very extensive and in-depth alcohol and drug treatment program and in some cases people have been sent there because of a drinking and driving charge. The staff works hard to help these individuals regain control of their lives again, and through PSA’s like this one, hope to help prevent people from drinking and driving in the first place. “We want everyone to have a very safe and happy holidays, and don’t drink and drive,” added Mr. Dubreuil. “It doesn’t take much to take a cab, call a friend, or even stay the night, but please, for the sake of your family and friends, don’t get behind the wheel after drinking.”
