More Success Stories

The Canadian province of British Columbia is Canada’s westernmost province. It has an alcohol and drug addiction rate of nearly 13%. That is one of the highest in Canada.

British Columbia is bordered to the west by the Pacific Ocean. To the east is the Canadian province of Alberta. The U.S. state of Alaska can be found to the north, while the states of Washington, Idaho, and Montana border British Columbia to the south.

The capital of British Columbia is Victoria, a small city located off the mainland on Vancouver Island. The province’s most populous city is Vancouver, which is located in the southwest corner of the mainland.

British Columbia is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and its inhabitants, surrounded as they are by nature’s splendor, tend to take a conservationist’s attitude toward their environment.

Recently, the British Columbia Medical Association published a report urging for the compassionate care of the individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. They estimate that addiction costs the Canadian government about $6 billion dollars a year, and they argue that it’s time for the government to recognize addiction as a chronic disease and treat it as such. This can help remove the stigma of personal failure associated with addiction, which can make it easier for addicts to seek and find appropriate treatment.

Beautiful British Columbia

Sobriety.ca Foundation For Substance Abuse Treatment in British Columbia

British Columbia has so much to offer Canadians as both a vacation destination and a permanent home. The province’s diverse landscapes, beautiful forests, stunning lakes, towering mountains and of course, the ocean, make BC one of the most attractive places to visit in our great country. A province known for healthy living, skiing, outdoorsmanship as well as a thriving urban culture in the lower mainland, wouldn’t be everyone’s first guess as to one of the most problematic places in Canada for drug addiction. Vancouver is British Columbia’s largest city, but also the capital of heroin addiction in Canada. The problem has now begun to spread throughout Canada but residents of BC have felt the pain and heartbreak from substance abuse for many years now, and there simply aren’t enough treatment options available.

Sobriety.ca Foundation has welcomed and helped many residents of British Columbia end their addiction to drugs, and our first rate staff have treated scores of different types of addictions. From party drugs in youth, to the abuse of prescription painkillers, Sobriety.ca Foundation has seen success after success with our unique and balanced approach to substance abuse recovery. A dedication that many in BC have to healthy living is a strength that we at Sobriety.ca Foundation put to use in our treatment programs. We devise individualized strategies in treatment that combine both a science based approach, and holistic alternatives to end addiction and promote wellness during recovery.

Healthy living is a fundamental part of the treatment strategy Sobriety.ca Foundation will devise for a client. Our meals are made with fresh, organic ingredients farmed locally. While clients are not participating in therapy, group therapy or other structured activities, there are many ways they can work on themselves during their stay with us. We encourage our clients to use our exercise equipment and programs, take up yoga should they choose, meditate and even opt for a massage if they are feeling stressed or anxious. Embarking on a life changing journey of ending one’s addiction to drugs is ambitious, courageous but also very difficult. Sobriety.ca Foundation offers the amenities we do to both ease worry and stress, but also because exercise, healthy eating and privacy are proven to assist in recovery. If drug addiction is plaguing your life, and you feel a change needs to be made, Sobriety.ca Foundation’s door is always open and we welcome those from BC with open arms.

Drug & Alcohol Addiction, Recovery, & Rehabilitation Information for Vancouver, BC

Vancouver is British Columbia’s largest city and one of Canada’s major metropolitan centers. Its drug and alcohol addiction rate is just under 11%–below the national average but higher than the addiction rates of other major Canadian cities, including Toronto and Montreal.

Vancouver has a population of nearly 600,000, but the major metropolitan area is home to over 2 million people. That makes it the largest metropolitan area in all of Western Canada.

Consistently rated one of the most livable cities in the world, Vancouver boasts a multiethnic population and a gorgeous mountainous backdrop. Yet, drug and alcohol addiction remains a serious problem, particularly in the inner city.

In 2006, the mayor of Vancouver called for the implementation of an experimental program to combat addiction to cocaine and crystal meth. Under this program, addicts would be given substitute drugs to help them quit or at least prevent their drug habit from growing. Experimentation for a similar program in which heroin addicts receive small, daily doses of heroin is already underway. The goal of the program is one of harm reduction – if addicts are unable to completely quit their habit then it might at least be possible to minimize the harm associated with being addicted to drugs.

Sobriety Home is a private, residential drug and alcohol treatment facility located a short drive from Ottawa. An important goal of the facility is to treat individuals suffering from addiction with respect and dignity. As such, the comprehensive care program includes accommodations and recreational facilities similar to those found in top-notch spas.
