Sunshine Coast Health Centre produces the CDR (Canada Drug Rehab) directory as a public service. The Centre is announcing an important new "drug fact sheet" on fentanyl and carfentanyl, amidst the on-going opioid crisis in Canada.

CALGARY, Alberta, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top Centres in

Canada for drug rehab and alcohol treatment, is proud to announce an informative new "fact sheet" on fentanyl and carfentanyl abuse posted to the CDR (Canada Drug Rehab) website at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/blog/drug-facts/drug-fact-sheet-fentanyl-and-carfentanyl/. The post explains that fentanyl and carfentanyl belong to the group of drugs known as opioids. They are currently both in the news in relation to the "opioid crisis" that is gripping North America, both Canada and the United States. Fentanyl was created for human use, while carfentanyl was only ever intended for large animal use like elephants.

"As a leading Centre in Canada for drug rehab that uses a non 12 step methodology, we draw many patients from Alberta including Calgary and Edmonton," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "The new post explains basic facts on fentanyl and carfentanyl which is informative to those who may be suffering from addiction, know someone, or be ready to reach out for drug rehabilitation and other forms of therapy."

The post explains that one shot of Naloxone, the opioid overdose reversal medication, is usually all that is needed for a heroin overdose. However, an overdose involving carfentanyl can take more than half a dozen shots of Naloxone to overcome. After an acute crisis, it is very important for the affected person to enroll in a drug rehabilitation program. Fortunately, the website has information on public programs in Calgary at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/alberta/alberta-locate-your-health-authority/calgary/. Those seeking private drug rehabilitation options in Calgary can visit the Calgary information page at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/calgary-alcohol-treatment/ which explains the Calgary intake office and treatment options for drugs and alcohol available at the Centre's residential facility in Powell River, BC.
