Lethbridge is Alberta’s third-largest city by both population (just over 100,000 people) and land area after Calgary and Edmonton, and the largest city in southern Alberta. It is the commercial, financial, transportation and industrial centre of southern Alberta, with half of its workforce employed in the health, education, retail and hospitality sectors. With the Canadian Rocky Mountains to the West, Lethbridge experiences warm summers, mild winters, and windy climate.
Lethbridge is a smaller city but it’s not exempt from big city problems. It is home to North America’s busiest safe consumption site, which sees approximately 675 visits a day. However, the city is lacking in many other critical infrastructure needs to battle the drug crisis.
Like other North American cities, Lethbridge is grappling with a drug epidemic that has shifted from opioids to methamphetamine. Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Smoking or injecting methamphetamine puts the drug very quickly into the bloodstream and brain, causing an immediate, intense rush, making it a drug with high potential for widespread misuse. Chronic abusers may exhibit symptoms that can include significant anxiety, confusion, insomnia, mood disturbances, violent behavior, and even psychotic episodes, including paranoia, hallucinations, and delusions.
Being the spouse, parent, friend or other loved one of someone abusing drugs or alcohol can be extremely difficult. However, seeking help for them could be the best thing you can do. If substance abuse has become a problem for a friend or relative in Lethbridge, it might be time for you to consider an intervention.
