The Drug Cocktails website – “Facts for Youth about mixing Medicine, Booze and Street
Drugs” (the “Site”) has been developed as a resource for youth and staff within
Children’s & Women’s Health Centre of British Columbia Branch (C&W) for Provincial
Health Services Authority and its branch agencies (PHSA)(C&W and PHSA together the
“Societies”). There are support systems at the Societies which may not exist in
other clinical settings and therefore adoption or use of this manual is not the
responsibility of the Societies. Agencies other than the Societies should use Cocktails
as a guideline for reference purposes only. The contents of this website were current
at the time of development in July 2013. The Societies are not responsible for information
that has changed after that time, whether incorporated into the Site or not.
The Site contains best practice knowledge, but practice standards may change as
more knowledge is gained. Decision making in a specific context remains the responsibility
of attending professionals. Nothing on the Site should in any way be construed as
being either official or unofficial policy of the Societies.
Contact information and links to websites contained on the Site are provided for
convenience only. The Societies cannot guarantee that the information, links or
content from these links remain current. Providing a contact or link does not mean
that the Societies endorse the views, products or services that may be offered via
the link. The Societies assume no responsibility or liability arising from any error
in, or omission of, information or from the use of any information, link, contact,
opinion, advice or similar, provided on the Site.
