Addiction Canada has undergone significant challenges in recent years due to false claims, incomplete press coverage and the sheer sensitivity of the issues related to the industry. Only now are some of the true challenges of the industry coming to light. With the legalization of heroine, bionic drugs in the marketplace, opiate addiction rates higher than ever and much more concerning changes. Addiction recovery in Canada is gravely misunderstood and unsupported by government or public resources. Pharmaceutical companies are proving to be part of the problem, not part of the solution.
I stand by the fact that Addiction Canada has saved lives! That it has done so proudly and effectively in light of extenuating circumstances. Addiction Canada, the organization has and continues to have challenges of maintaining the highest standards of recovery care and business operations as a direct result of false and inaccurate allegations and the effect on business brought about by the posting of false allegations in the media and online.
Personally, I have been challenged and publicly labeled in an unbecoming manner, along with false and incomplete accusations and allegations supported by the media. My support for those suffering from addiction is unwavering, hence I will be assuming a change of direction. I will take on the role of proving my and our company’s innocence and the success of my proprietary recovery program, and to consult with private centres on fulfilling effective, life-saving measures within their programs.
Our government is failing the people that entrust them with proper guidance and advice. They follow an outdated standard of care, and implement measures that are simply wrong and ineffective. Without the efforts of private rehab clinics many lives would be lost. Government care is slow and lacking.
My mission will be to seek change in the industry, to be a catalyst for effective and accountable standards and regulations that will positively impact successful recovery for those in need.
I am now taking on authorities and media to regain the good name of Addiction Canada and John Haines.
