GR8 Day – Crossroads Addiction Recovery Support
GR8 Day – Crossroads Addiction Recovery Support was incorporated in 2016 to help cover a gap in our health care system by providing addiction recovery support and services or those who have no means to pay for them. We are registered with Canada Revenue Agency.
The impetus to set up GR8 Day came from our intimate involvement with Crossroads: Centre for Personal Empowerment. The demand for services from Crossroads by individuals who do not have the personal means or assistance of benefits plans to obtain the help they need has been increasing steadily.
Windsor-Essex County is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Both opioid prescription rates and opioid related deaths are higher in Windsor-Essex County than the provincial averages. Addiction treatment for all forms of substance abuse in Windsor-Essex County is in very high demand. If a person seeking help does not have employee benefits and/or financial resources, the situation is even more desperate. Drug replacement therapy using Methadone or Suboxone for an opiate addiction is available under OHIP for those receiving social assistance, but not the specialized counselling and support required in rebuilding a manageable life.
When people with substance abuse challenges reach that point in their lives where they are ready to reach out for help, it is critical that they can find the help they need.
