Foundation 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.

The beautiful okanagan region in british columbia is an excellent place to find hope for beginning drug addiction treatment 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, 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 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.

The sun sets on downtown vancouver, and on drug addiction in the city as many addicts decide to make a change and seek treatment for their substance abuse.

Healthy living is a fundamental part of the treatment strategy 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. 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, Foundation’s door is always open and we welcome those from BC with open arms.

Man on the coast of BC embraces drug addicts with open arms as they are beginning their journey of recovery and sobriety.
