With our widespread network of clinicians, alumni, and current clients who are all impacted by the problems of drug abuse.
Vancouver, BC, Canada (PRWEB) February 27, 2016
Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a top-rated drug rehabilitation treatment centre in British Columbia, Canada, at http://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca, is issuing a public alert on a new so-called 'designer' drug called W-18; the Centre has noticed an uptick in concern, and is alerting its clients and former clients as well as the general public about W-18. This alert is being published on its blog, and via press releases services to increase the reach as far as possible.
"With our widespread network of clinicians, alumni, and current clients who are all impacted by the problems of drug abuse, Sunshine Coast is positioned to be among the first to experience new waves of drug abuse problems such as potential W-18 problems," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "We are using a formal press release in combination with our blog and social media as a way to alert the general public to the new and growing W-18 problem as of February, 2016."
Popular Guide to Street Drugs
Sunshine Coast publishes one of the most popular guides to street drugs and drug abuse at http://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/drug-information/. For the specific section on pain killers related to W-18, please see the Fentanyl and related opiates section at http://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/drug/pain-killer-addiction/.
Growing Opiate Addiction Problems in Alberta and British Columbia
Though drug abuse problems know no season, social class, or race or ethnicity, recent economic turmoil that is impacting Canada's Western provinces is yet another factor for increases in drug abuse problems. W-18 is yet another indication of the deadly mix between so-called 'designer' drugs that may escape public regulation by being significantly different enough from known drugs. In addition, both street users and users who abuse off the street may not consider the toxicity of these new drugs compared to other substances that are 'known evils'. By alerting the community to the potential problems of W-18, Sunshine Coast is using the power of the Internet to pre-warn interested parties about W-18’s negative potential. Its popular Internet resource on drugs, alcohol abuse, and drug paraphernalia is an online resources on more commonly known problems. That guide, in combination with public alerts, such as this press release are meant to help educate the Canadian public to substance abuse trends.
