Addiction-Free Living

Liberal candidate Throness advocates long-term drug and alcohol treatment

Submitted by Laurie Throness, Chilliwack-Hope Liberal candidate


t was nice to meet you finally today, and I enjoyed your column in the Victoria Street Newz.


I thought your insights about addiction were very appropriate and your application of harm reduction to the idea of gambling was a new and interesting angle.


During the by-election, as you may know, I advocated for long-term treatment to free people from addictions to drugs and alcohol. I suppose gambling can be thought of in the same way.
