Drug And Alcohol Shelter Programs In Newfoundland And Labrador

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador does not have a very large population of people, but the larger cities and towns still struggle with helping the homeless people living there. The Salvation Army operates a homeless shelter in St. John's that is equipped to help men and women, and teens if needed. This shelter can provide temporary lodging and food for people in need along with helping line up resources for addicts in the form of drug rehabilitation programs, detox centers and twelve-step meetings that are able to help treat addiction. Because homelessness and addiction tend to go hand in hand shelters are equipped with these resources to help people in need. Because a shelter is only a temporary place for a person to stay, most shelters are set up to help people gain employment or even new skills and abilities to make a transition back into society once again. When a person ends up homeless, it can be difficult to re-enter society again and start back to a normal life, many homeless people will end up staying that way for quite some time and will not always have an opportunity to start over again. Shelters are able to provide that opportunity for these individuals and can help get them back on the right track again.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. 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. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
