The Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction is a province-wide resource for people who are affected by problematic substance use, mental health issues and health care concerns. The goal of this 100-bed facility is to support people to regain their health, benefit from treatment, and eventually return to community life, with continued support for recovery. The Centre integrates mental health, substance use and primary care to provide a holistic approach and focuses on a person’s individual strengths. In addition, the Centre fills a gap in service and meets the complex needs of people who are homeless or living in unstable housing, who are vulnerable, and who are affected by significant physical and mental health issues, and a substance use problem.
