A pediatric addictions expert in Montreal is sounding the alarm about an increase in the number of teenagers referred to his clinic, who are vaping in a more harmful way during lockdown than in pre-pandemic times.
He describes it as binge-vaping.
The behavioral changes have resulted in serious nicotine addictions and worsening mental health problems for some teenagers and even pre-teens, according to Dr. Nicholas Chadi, who oversees addiction services at Ste-Justine Hospital.
