Drug And Alcohol Shelter Services In New Brunswick

Throughout the Maritimes, homelessness is as much problem as it is anywhere else in Canada, and because of adverse weather conditions during the winter, many homeless individuals end up in tough situations, and some even die because of the weather and unfriendly conditions. In the province of New Brunswick, there are a couple of different shelters available in Fredericton, through the Fredericton Homeless Shelters. There is a shelter that is able to help women only, and one that is able to specifically help men only. These shelters are able to provide different resources to help addicts strangling with addiction and substance abuse problems. This can be done through referral services, detox programs, and the ability to help a person enter a drug and alcohol treatment program with little to no hassle. Drug treatment programs and shelters normally work very closely so as to provide resources and help to people who need them. Homeless shelters are usually always full and do whatever they can provide temporary lodging and food for people who need it. These shelters are funded through the provincial government and can also receive local funding through the private sector to help keep the doors open and continue helping people in need.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year.
