An In-depth Look at Solvent Abuse

Some teenagers in Natuashish complain that there is very little to keep them occupied. And that’s why they turn to sniffing gas. But other teens don’t go down this path. Earlier this week, our John Gaudi was in Natuashish, and he brings us a story from there. We’ll also delve into questions like how hazardous solvent abuse can be, and what kind of treatment is available.

That centre has treated some of the young people from Natuashish.
