Simon Wood grew up in a nice family neighbourhood of Toronto. He was a healthy & promising teenage boy loved by his family & friends. At an important stage of his young life Simon sadly passed away from an opioid-induced accidental overdose. The tragic loss of Simon and other youth have become far too common in Canada with drug addiction and substance abuse in young adults is becoming a crisis in our country.
Regrettably, we all know a Simon Wood – a youth or young adult struggling with addiction or substance abuse.
Addiction and substance abuse is a growing crisis for too many of our youth and young adults in Canada. The Simon Wood Foundation provides much needed bursaries for the families of young people in need of substance abuse treatment who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
