Addictions Specialist – Dr. Patricia Anderson BSc, MSc, MD, CCFP

Dr. Patricia Anderson has been a substance abuse and specialized addiction doctor for over 20 years. At Fraser Valley Treatment Centre, or FVTC, Dr. Anderson specializes in the treatment of alcohol, drug and substance abuse.

Dr. Anderson first became involved in substance abuse addiction and corrections as a resident. It was during her residency training that she provided care to inmates at the Saskatoon Regional Psychiatric Centre, which is only one of two correctional facilities for the criminally insane.

Dr. Anderson has also worked as a Physician Consultant at the Surrey Pretrial Services Centre. Unfortunately, corrections work goes hand in hand with addiction and substance abuse. After consulting for the Surrey Pretrial Services Centre, Dr. Anderson has spent the last seven years immersed with community addiction services for alcohol, drug and substance abuse.

Her experience with the diverse treatments of substance abuse addiction includes alcohol and drug treatment centres, recovery houses (in home and facility) and the jail system. Dr. Anderson has amassed many years of experience in diagnosing and treating people who suffer from long-term substance abuse.

Dr. Anderson’s experience and knowledge is vast, yet she has committed herself to ongoing education in the area of addiction and substance abuse. Dr. Anderson gets immense satisfaction from the many successes that she has witnessed and truly believes in multi-factorial aides to recovery. These types of addiction therapy are provided through Fraser Valley Treatment Centre, a private facility that specializes in alcohol and drug substance abuse.
