Under the Canadian Human Rights Code, every person has a right to equal treatment with respect of 9~1~1 services and medical aid without discrimination. Addiction has no face or color; it has no age or gender preference. When one is in need of assistance while overdosing or alcohol poisoning; don't panic. Call 911. Don't let more Mama's and Papa's serve lifetime sentences, because you were afraid of getting into trouble. Trouble is temporary; Death is forever.
My project will take me through many communities, cities and towns through-out Canada; raising awareness about being a Good Samaritan; if you happen to be amongst someone who needs assistance, after a drug or alcohol overdose. I would like every child, teen, youth, parent to receive a certificate showing they pledged to call 9~1~1. Each person will also receive a booklet showing how to lay a body and what to do if one needs medical assistance. There is no easy way out when someone is afraid of the consequences; so this project will hopefully teach them, the right, that every person has to life.

Drug/ alcohol overdoses are comonly found in teens partying in parents homes, graduation parties, prom parties or those experimenting for the first time. Drug / alcohol overdoses happen even in the best of families who take lengthy measures to prevent their children from using deadly prescriptions. Most find drugs in your medicine cabinet.
