Smoking ban stays at addiction centres
CanWest News Service, July 25, 2007
SASKATOON -- A controversial smoking ban that now covers addiction treatment centres in Saskatoon is going through growing pains, but isn't going to be lifted any time soon.
"When people have a serious mental illness or addictions problem how can we treat them knowing full well that this other addiction, nicotine, has a higher chance of killing them in the long term?" said Greg Drummond, the general manager of mental health and addictions services for the Saskatoon Health Region.
