Drug and alcohol abuse or addiction strikes all, regardless of social or economic status. The visible face of addiction is the poor individual that ends up on the streets. But this group is only 5% of the addicted population. In Vancouver there are an estimated 95,000 individuals struggling with alcohol or drug misuse or addiction. The majority of people with addiction disorders are employed, with families and assets. In fact, 76% of illicit drug users, 81% of adult binge drinkers, and 80% of heavy drinkers are employed.

But there is hope. Although, addiction is a progressive chronic disease, it does not have to end up with someone hitting a disastrous bottom before getting treatment.

At EDGEWOOD Vancouver Addiction Services we work with families, employers, friends and the individual to get help before the person "hits bottom."

Our staff of qualified addiction treatment counsellors provides family and individual support in the form of coaching, assessments, education and interventions. We can also help in selecting and providing expedited alcohol and drug rehab placement and referral. We also provide alcohol and drug testing.

Our ASAM certified addiction treatment physician will provide medical assistance, detoxification medication (including Suboxone and Methadone for opiate withdrawal) and certified addiction assessments.
