Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province in Canada, and is located at the north-eastern corner of North America. Newfoundland is also known for the well-known, Mount Cashel Orphanage.
The facility is remembered for scandal and protracted court cases, regarding sexual abuse of children.
Men and women who are sexually abused during childhood are at an increased risk for drug abuse as adults. Women who have experienced any type of sexual abuse in childhood are roughly three times more likely than girls, who haven’t been abused, to report drug dependence as adults. “Overall”, childhood sexual abuse is more strongly associated with drug or alcohol dependence than with any of the psychiatric disorders.
Drugs and Alcohol have become a major problem in St. Johns Newfoundland in the past 10 years.
Since the oil boom in Alberta exploded years ago, and with people from Newfoundland regularly travelling back and forth on shift rotations, the situation has changed dramatically. Cocaine, OxyContin and prescription pills have joined marijuana as the drug of choice in Newfoundland and Labrador, some might even say have overtaken the landscape.
“Cocaine” has always been a big problem in St. John’s with the frequent movement between people working in Alberta and living in Newfoundland, and the money they earn, has made the so-called ‘hard core’ drugs more accessible. Drugs like heroin, crack cocaine and fentanyl are certainly now being exposed to the people here in Newfoundland because of that.
Cocaine, Heroin and prescription pill use has not only affected the working adults, but youth as well. Recent student drug use surveys have revealed young people trying substances, like cocaine and ecstasy, have increased from around two per cent to more than ten percent.
