Life Happens: Addiction

Perhaps you’ve found yourself caught in the grip of substance addiction, where every dollar spent feeding the addiction represents a missed opportunity for financial security. Or maybe you’ve struggled with compulsive behaviours like gambling or shopping, where the rush of the moment blinds you to the long-term consequences.

The journey of addiction often leads to debt, creating a cycle of financial strain that feels impossible to break. Bills pile up, creditors demand payment, and the weight of financial obligations grows heavier with each passing day.

Our team is here to provide compassionate support and practical solutions to help you navigate the financial consequences of addiction. We aim to work with you to lift the burden of debt and empower you to take steps towards a brighter, debt-free future.

“Dealing with accumulated debt due to addiction requires a comprehensive plan to help address it effectively. We’re here to offer not just financial guidance but a path to reclaiming control over your finances — and your future.”

Wesley Cowan, MNP Licensed Insolvency Trustee
