KELOWNA, British Columbia, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to the collapse of the Canadian dollar, Valiant Recovery, a rehabilitation center in British Columbia, is currently welcoming Americans into its treatment programs for a fraction of the price they would pay for addiction treatment in the United States.
"Canada's loss is the United States' gain," said Royce Dockrill, CEO of Valiant Recovery. "Under the current financial circumstances, clients can receive premium quality addiction treatment at government-funded rehab prices."
Because of the 2014 Canadian oil collapse and subsequent central bank initiatives, the Canadian dollar has declined to nearly 70-percent of the U.S. Dollar. Economists do not expect it to return to a healthy 80-percent for at least another year, which means that Canadian goods and services are currently available to Americans at a prodigious 30-percent discount.
The cost of luxury addiction treatment at Valiant Recovery, and standard addiction treatment at Valiant Recovery's satellite facility, The Crossing Point, are comparable with United States rehab prices. The luxury program comes to a total of $18,000 per month while the standard program caters to the average income earner at $10,500 per month. Converted from Canadian to U.S. currency, that brings the cost of treatment down to $13,000 per month for the luxury program and $7,500 per month for the standard program.
Not only are Valiant Recovery's prices discounted to Americans, but it is also conveniently located near the U.S. border. Both treatment facilities are only 75 miles north of the Washington border town Oroville in Kelowna, British Columbia, which has its own international airport. Kelowna has long been a desirable destination for travelers from the U.S. because of its mild temperatures and scenic beauty. U.S. Passport holders can remain in Canada for up to six months without a visa, which is more than enough time to complete any of the treatment center's programs. Valiant Recovery and The Crossing Point regularly treat U.S. clients who are looking to recover from their addiction and substance abuse problems outside of their usual surroundings.
"Travelling in order to attend a rehabilitation program is actually the recommended method of receiving treatment," Dockrill said. "Separating yourself from your usual triggers, destructive relationships and objects of your addiction to place yourself into a secure, neutral environment allows you to safely reconstruct your identity."
Now more than ever is the time to take advantage of Valiant Recovery's services. In the world of addiction treatment, discounted services are unheard of. Mental health services of any kind are a highly specialized process that require a very specific operating budget. People who make a U.S. income have a rare opportunity to receive the equivalent of a 30-percent discount on a 30, 60 or 90 day treatment program that will give them the tools necessary to recover from their addiction or substance abuse problem. In addition to the discounted rate, potential clients have the option of applying for financing plans that will allow them to pay for treatment in installments. When a healthy, functional life is what you stand to gain, the reasons not to enroll are few.
Money is one of the most common reasons people do not connect with the addiction treatment they need. Inpatient addiction treatment is a considerable investment, and even addicts and substance abusers who are in danger of irreparable physical and mental damage often shy away from treatment because of financial reasons. What they do not realize is that the long term consequences of addiction and substance abuse wreak havoc on finances, relationships, employment standing and personal health.
Valiant Recovery and The Crossing Point are privately operated rehabilitation centers in Kelowna, British Columbia. All clients receive private or shared bedroom options, healthy meal plans, private counseling sessions and a variety of recreational opportunities. In addition, the luxury and executive treatment programs offer on-site amenities such as a hot tub, sauna, game room, gym, movie theatre, business center and massage therapy. Clients are able to check into treatment the same day of enrollment.
