VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Canada Drug Rehab (CDR), an outreach program by Sunshine Coast Health Centre and publisher of informative resources on drug rehab and alcohol treatment in Canada, is proud to announce its latest "fact sheet" on opioids. As the opioid crisis plagues Canadian communities from Vancouver to Halifax, the public is eager to learn as much as possible about opioids. The new "fact sheet" is an easy way for the lay public to learn and get informed; those who may be facing addiction themselves (or for a loved one), can also use the resource to locate drug rehab and alcohol treatment clinics throughout Canada.

"The opioid epidemic is, unfortunately, widespread in Canada yet not everyone fully understands even the basics to opioids," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "Our new 'fact sheet' helps people get informed, as information is one of the first steps towards treatment and awareness."

Interested persons can review the new resource post from Canada Drug Rehab at The post is also important because it points to resources for persons suffering from drug addiction, as for example, CDR's directory of British Columbia drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs at Indeed, those who want to drill even deeper can learn about Sunshine Coast's "non 12 step" methodology to great drugs and alcohol dependency at


Here is background on this release. First, the new drug fact sheet points out, implicitly, that the opioid crisis in Canada is national. It respects neither provincial nor cultural boundaries, and has ravaged communities far and wide across Canada. Second, it points out explicitly that learning is the best first step towards treatment. A person battling addiction, or a person with a loved one battling addiction, needs to take steps to first learn what opioids are, how the brain work, reasons why people become addicted and finally different treatment approaches. Not all people respond in the same way, and there is no "one size fits all" treatment methodology, only general patterns of results. Finally, using the CDR website, the person can privately recover information and begin his or her search for both governmental and private treatment programs.

Early intervention and outpatient treatment may help a person with a drug addiction detox. If drug abuse continues, it may be important to contact one of the best residential Canadian drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in the Canadian regions. For these reasons, CDR has announced a new informational page for opioids.


Canada Drug Rehab is an addiction services directory and public service initiative page funded by Sunshine Coast Health Centre. CDR is a free directory and listing alcohol treatment, drug rehab, detox programs and other related services in Canada. Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men.

The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, BC, and across Canada, particularly British Columbia and Alberta and cities such as Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. Canadian men suffering from opioid abuse, alcoholism, and other substance abuse and addiction issues can find help.
