Red Deer sits about halfway between Calgary and Edmonton and with a population of over 100,000 it is Alberta’s fourth largest city after Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge. Its location, next to one of the busiest transportation corridors in North America, provides for a diverse and resilient economy, built on historically traditional industries and emerging sectors – natural resources, agriculture, trades, transportation and production as well as the arts, culture, recreation and sport.
Like its neighbours Edmonton to the north and Calgary to the south, Red Deer is battling a war against the rising drug problem. While Calgary and Edmonton have the highest absolute numbers of fentanyl overdose fatalities, per capita Red Deer has by far the highest rate of fentanyl related deaths. The number of Red Deer fentanyl-related deaths doubled from 21.4 to 43.8 (per 100,000) in 2018, with part of the problem attributable to the fact that the city has no residential addiction treatment facility. Anyone needing this treatment must travel to one of Alberta’s larger cities. In July 2019 alone, there were 4,500 visits to Red Deer’s Temporary Overdose Prevention Site resulting in 151 overdoses that were reversed with medical intervention.
While overdose prevention sites undoubtedly save lives, to change lives the addiction itself needs to be addressed. If you have a family member in Red Deer who is in crisis with their drug or alcohol addiction, and it’s affected their work, relationships or health, it may be time to consider an intervention.

Andy is known for being the guy you call when you're worried about doing an intervention with someone unpredictable. Not all interventionists are comfortable with things not going as planned and as everyone rehearsed. If you can picture someone flipping furniture or screaming or running away during your intervention, call Andy and get him to facilitate for you.
Andy possesses a high level of compassion and empathy for the people he is trying to help. This combination translates into him being able to establish a connection of trust with people who've been beaten down by addiction, and trust is a critical component of helping an addicted loved one and the family through a very difficult process.
