Yukoners can call the Alcohol and Drug Services 24/7 for information at 667-5777 or 1-855-667-5777 in Yukon communities. Calls are anonymous.

Recommended websites

There is a lot of information available on the internet, but it can be difficult to know whether or not the information is reliable. The websites below provide credible, current information on alcohol, other drugs and addictions issues.

Pamphlets

We have a wide selection of pamphlets and booklets available for anyone to take away and read at their leisure. Pamphlet topics range from drug specific information, to the effects of addiction on a family, to living in recovery. Anyone wanting information can call us or stop by and speak with a Prevention Consultant. All requests for information are kept confidential.

Information for parents/caregivers

We have a selection of pamphlets and booklets for parents and caregivers. These resources provide parents/caregivers with information about specific drugs, ideas about developing and supporting a substance free lifestyle in children and youth, and support for parents/ caregivers dealing with a youth’s alcohol or drug use.
