Opiate addictions in Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford and across Vancouver’s lower mainland have increased tremendously in the last 2 years. In 2016, over 900 people died because of fentanyl addiction in Vancouver B.C. Fentanyl is a highly powerful synthetic opiate that’s more powerful than morphine and heroin.
Opiates are a pharmaceutical form of Heroin.
Our goal is to raise awareness on opiate addiction and to let the public, addicts, and families know that if you know someone who is abusing opiates, there is help. All drug and alcohol treatment centers in Vancouver and Langley doesn’t cost lots of money.
Revolution Recovery Society & Andy Bhatti Interventions and Addiction Services will have a pop-up tent information booth, offering families and friends of addict’s free information on where people can go to get help for their loved ones can’t afford private treatment. We will be handing out information on the dangers of opiate addiction and information papers where people can go to for help looking for treatment and detox information,
Revolution Recovery House is in Surrey B.C. and is a men’s recovery house that accepts people of all incomes and is approved by income assistants. Andy Bhatti is a drug and alcohol interventionist based out of Langley B.C. just 45 mins from Vancouver.
On June 10 from 10:30 am to 4 pm at the Aldergrove Days slow-pitch tournament all celebrities will be signing autographs for fans in exchange for donations to help victims of childhood sexual abuse. There will also be a silent auction. The proceeds from this event will go to Survivors Supporting Survivors Society.
Addiction doesn’t just affect the addict, it also affects communities, baseball teams and friendships. Over the last 2 years, we have seen an increase in people that we are playing slow pitch with die from fentanyl or other opiate-related overdoses.
We are now losing are close friends to the deadly fentanyl crisis. We want addicts to know that recovery is possible and they don’t need to try quitting on their own, we are here to help and support one another.
