The Bridge Youth & Family Services has made the difficult decision to suspend all of its group activities for the time being. This includes our parenting and family programs, Naloxone training, and Etcetera – amongst others. Should any participants of our social support programs need our assistance during this time, please call us and we’d be most pleased to touch base with you by phone, text, email or – if possible – in-person. Call our main number at 250.763.0456 and ask to speak to anyone you’re familiar with. We are still here for you. All other programs of The Bridge are open for business and we look forward to serving you through our Family and/or our Recovery and Addictions services.

In April 2016, British Columbia’s Public Health Officer declared a public health emergency due to the significant increases in drug-related overdoses and deaths. The BC Coroner confirms fentanyl has been detected in the majority of illicit drug overdose deaths.

Administering Naloxone is a form of first aid in situations involving opioid overdose – we encourage all members of our community to be ready to administer this life-saving medication. Evidence shows that with appropriate training, members of the public (such as friends and family of opioid users) can recognize and respond to opioid overdoses. Waiting for response of Emergency Medical Services can have potentially fatal consequences.

As this crisis continues to ravage our community, we are supporting efforts to raise awareness, combat stigma and decrease deaths. We have launched a campaign to develop a local Youth Recovery House to provide early intervention to young people as an approach to stem the tide of deaths related to overdose.

On-line Naloxone Training is available to all at www.TowardTheHeart.com and kits can be picked up from The Bridge’s Adult Withdrawal Management site located at 760 Hwy 33 W or our main office at #8-2604 Enterprise Way.
