Description & Services
Information Students against destructive decisions (SADD): to provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and other destructive decisions. 
SADD was formed by the Amherst Regional High School Teen Health Centre, Co-Operators Insurance, and the Amherst Police Department. Each year, SADD students attend the Canadian Youth Against Impaired Driving Conference held in different regions of Canada. In 2006, the Amherst chapter won the national prize for hosting the best NSAID Day (National Students Against Impaired Driving). This group plays an important role at the Amherst Regional High School by educating their peers on impaired driving, bridge jumping, and healthy sexual relationships. They have also contributed in supporting other high schools in Nova Scotia by starting their own groups.
