Drug And Alcohol Shelters For Homeless In Nova Scotia

The province of Nova Scotia has seen many issues with drug problems and homelessness throughout the inner-city streets and small towns. There are many different treatment resources available in the province that can help addicts that are battling substance abuse. There is also a shelter available; The Halifax Centre of Hope, located in Halifax. This shelter is as well set up as a residential drug rehabilitation center and is able to provide drug and alcohol treatment for male and female addicts struggling with addiction. Throughout Nova Scotia, many homeless people are having to battle severe weather conditions and are not always able to escape these conditions and are caught up in difficult situations. Addiction can force people into homelessness because an addict will end up spiraling out of control and in some cases very quickly they can end up losing quite a bit including their employment and home. When an addict is in a position where they are no longer working and are not able to produce any further income they can be forced to living across the street as they cannot afford the basic costs of living, and their addiction may be pushing them deeper into the problem. A shelter is an excellent resource to help these individuals get back on track again, and start a new life that can eventually be drug-free.

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.
