PCRS to open a new youth substance-use treatment facility in Chilliwack!

Traverse, a new treatment centre in Chilliwack, will open soon to provide specialized support for youth in the Fraser Health region who are living with substance-use challenges.

The 20-bed centre is the first of its kind in the region that exclusively supports young people ages 13 to 18 who require an extended stay in a treatment facility to address their substance-use challenges.

“Pacific Community Resources Society is extremely excited to be opening the new Traverse program to serve youth and families across the Fraser Health region to facilitate holistic recovery from substance misuse. With the input of youth, families, and our Indigenous neighbours, we are proud to provide our nature-based program that aims to restore health in relationships while showing youth the beautiful strengths and skills within them.” – Dr. Steven Esau, Director of Operations, PCRS, Fraser East
