CDR is a public resource for anyone in Canada looking for drug rehabilitation and/or alcohol treatment programs not only in British Columbia but in any of the major Canadian provinces.
VANCOUVER, B.C. (PRWEB) August 02, 2018
Canada Drug Rehab (CDR), a leading resource on drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment programs in Canada, is proud to announce a new post to its blog on the opioid crisis in British Columbia. While the opioid crisis has affected people across Canada, BC has been one of the hardest hit provinces. Many news stories focus on the problems in larger cities like Vancouver, but forget that other more rural areas are in the midst of the crisis too.
“CDR is a public resource for anyone in Canada looking for drug rehabilitation and/or alcohol treatment programs not only in British Columbia but in any of the major Canadian provinces,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “Our latest blog post draws attention to rural issues in British Columbia in light of the opioid epidemic hitting rural Canada.”
To read the post, visit https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/blog/general-category/drug-busts-throughout-okanagan-valley/. The post explores recent events in the Okanagan Valley, a vacation hotspot in the Interior approximately 4 hours east of Vancouver, which has long been known as part of the “Coke Highway” and is a conduit for drug running across the province. However, recent coordinated RCMP efforts across districts have lead to some major drug busts, stifling the supply chain. Persons interested in browsing available drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs are urged to visit the page on British Columbia at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/british-columbia. Alternatively, interested persons can visit the Sunshine Coast Health Centre page at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/drug_rehab_location/british-columbia-rehab/.
THE CRISIS IS BOTH URBAN AND RURAL
Here is background on the release. The opioid epidemic is a crisis not just in the urban centres of British Columbia such as Victoria, Vancouver, or Richmond but in the rural area as well. Many people first become addicted due to pain management issues, and then turn to "street drugs" to "self medicate." Once they seek treatment, they may not know how to locate public and/or private resources that can help them. The Canada Drug Rehab website is a public outreach program of Sunshine Coast Health Centre that aims to be a "one stop shop" for the public. It helps both afflicted persons and their loved ones to browse web resources from the comfort of their phones or computers, before taking the important step of reaching out over the phone, email, or face-to-face to seek a consultation. By blogging on important issues, such as the current post on rural British Columbia issues when it comes to opioids, the CDR website helps to draw attention to the problem yet communicate to Canadians that solutions are available.
