Fort McMurray Interventions

Support for those battling drug and alcohol addictions

Fort McMurray, located in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Alberta is a city of approximately 75,000 inhabitants in the middle of the Athabasca oil sands.

The oil industry draws many Candians to Fort McMurray – about 15,000 of whom are fly-in, fly-out workers – lured by the prospect of hard work, and good pay. For many, with hard work comes hard play, and what may start out as recreational drug use can quickly spiral into addiction. Those working the oil sands are at higher risk of abusing alcohol and drugs because of isolation from family, long working hours and shift rotations.

The drug of choice was once the less-harmful marijuana, but has suddenly changed to cocaine. The reason? Mandatory drug testing at places of employment. Whereas marijuana remains in the user’s body for weeks, cocaine leaves the system within 24 hours. With cash flowing, cocaine has become a problem for many people, blue collar and white collar alike. However, it’s not just cocaine that people are ingesting. Cocaine, like many other drugs, is often laced with the highly potent drug Fentanyl. Between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, 2018, 87 percent of apparent accidental poisoning deaths that were fentanyl related happened in large urban municipalities, including Fort McMurray, which reported eight deaths.

If you are concerned about a family member or friend in Fort McMurray whose life may be at risk from their drug or alcohol addiction, it might be time to consider an intervention.
