turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. Our goal is to help them deal with their underlying
issues, raise awareness and let them know they are not alone.

struggles with mental health or trauma or just want to come on down to watch an amazing
baseball tournament and home-run derby. Come and watch your favorite celebrities supporting
a great cause.
“Treatment for trauma survivors is typically where the work begins and ends, as well as
acknowledging the feelings and pain of those around them, such as family and friends.”

other mental health-related services located in Canada. If you wish to locate alcohol and drug
treatment services in your home community please remember you have two options:
(1) government-funded treatment or

Canada Drug Rehab is a free referral website for people seeking free information on
intervention services and public-funded treatment options all across Canada. The goal of this
website is to help families navigate free help.
Andy Bhatti is the new owner of Canada Drug Rehab, and he acquired the site so he can help
educate families on finding an appropriate treatment center. Many families don’t understand that
a treatment center that deals with substance use and with trauma survivors should have a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, trauma therapist, or a nurse practitioner on site 5 to 7 days a
Many families spend tens of thousands of dollars trying to help their loved ones but their loved
ones go to recovery centers that are not licensed. Many of these facilities don’t offer the proper
healthcare needed for the patient’s needs. Many people abuse substances to numb underlying
issues of trauma and families should have the opportunity to know where to find the right help.
