Press Release (ePRNews.com) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Sep 28, 2017 - Sunshine Coast Health Centre, considered one of the best private drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in British Columbia, Canada, is pleased to announce its support and participation via advertising in The Province newspaper’s featured article series on the opioid epidemic in British Columbia. The article focused on the history of and options for fighting the epidemic of painkiller abuse hitting not only British Columbia but all of Canada.
“The tragic opioid epidemic has hit Western Canada very hard,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “The Province has done a very good job as a leading publication in BC that brings to the public issues of importance about the epidemic and about treatment options. We hope that our involvement not only supported the paper but also brought awareness to those in British Columbia seeking private drug rehab and/or alcohol treatment.”
The article appeared on Aug. 31, 2017, in the print edition. It focused on issues concerning the use of naloxone as a treatment option when confronting a fentanyl overdose. Anyone with an addiction needs both a short-term and a long-term response. A short-term response by first responders is critical, as are options for the concerned public who may be dealing with a person at risk of or is experiencing an overdose. Next, there is the option of “detox” which is a process of removing the physical aspects of addiction.

During and after detox, long-term treatment plans to deal with the psychological aspects of addiction are defined.
