Addiction

Kalon Panacea Addiction Therapy is a new Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit with Extra Provincial Licensing to operate in British Columbia. We are in our developmental stages requiring a lease, licensing and permits.

With the COVID-19 Pandemic and the housing crisis we are facing in BC; people with Mental Health, Substance Misuse and Homelessness is at  it's highest ever.

People are dying at an alarming rate. 

Statistics show:

BC Coroners reported 117 deaths' in the month of April 2020, 39% increase from  April 2019,
4,700 people in BC have Died as a result of substance use.

Currently 235,000 Canadians are homeless with Mental Health and Addiction, 23% live in British Columbia.

Substance use cost the Canadian Government in 2017 $46.0 billion, 275,000 hospitalized and 75,000 deaths. These costs are expected to be much higher 2020-21

COVID-19 related social changes have resulted in a decrease in availability or direct services for people who use drugs including harm reduction, treatment services, outreach, business closures, boarder closures. COVID -19 is affecting the illegal drug supplies which results in

-a decrease or change in the availability of different drugs (more toxic)
-increased prices of drugs, but drugs are diluted (tolerance is down, overdose)
-associated drug consequences (health)
-people are using more toxic drugs and are using alone (isolated, overdose)
-fewer direct services available (no where to go)

Check the internet, there are very few places to rent and those that are available are very costly. 

With your help we can all save lives; we can't do it alone!

Your donations will help secure a facility, feed, clothe, house, offer support programs, counseling and a place to call home for approximately 20 clients,  for first 3 months of operation and will help with licensing, and permits,  such as sprinkler systems and fire alarms and codes. 

Our organizations team has donated 15,000.00 toward our goal.

We are in a state of emergency here in BC due the housing crisis and COVID-19. Waite times to get into treatment are 30 days to 6 months. During this time many relapse and die, that is not rational for someone reaching out for help! How can we help them if we have no where for them to go!

Due to the fact that we are a new  Not-For-Profit we do not qualify for charitable status, it takes approximately 12 months to 18 months to obtain.

There are many ways you can help; if you see someone struggling, offer support by listening, offer food,  clothing, a blanket.(never money)
