How Can We Help You?
Addiction Rehab Toronto
As one of Canada’s top addiction rehab facilities, our goal is not simply for you to no longer use drugs – it is to help you develop the skills and tools to cope with the stresses of life so you can rejoin your community and be productive and happy.
There are many rehab facilities that treat addiction. We believe in treating you, a human being. Addiction is rarely the root problem: it is a devastating symptom of underlying issues. 1000 Islands Addictions Treatment Centre will guide you through an exploration of those issues while also helping you discover healthier alternatives to substance abuse.
Why Do People Use Drugs?
At 1000 Islands Addictions Treatment Centre, we cannot make these stressors go away, but we can give you the tools to deal with them. Through therapy, we can help you explore your past traumas and how they are impacting your life. We can work on alternative therapies for chronic pain to reduce your reliance on opioid medications. Grief counseling can help you process the loss of a loved one and move forward in a positive way.
Some of the root causes of drug and alcohol abuse include:
- Witnessing or experiencing abuse or trauma
- A major stressful life event such as job loss or marital separation
- Loss of a loved one
- A sense of social isolation leading to a yearning to “fit in”
- Physical and mental health conditions requiring the use of potentially addictive prescription drugs
- Troubled relationships with parents, spouse or other family members

When you arrive at our facility, you will undergo a detailed assessment, during which we will get to know more about you. The assessment will give rise to an addiction treatment and rehab program that is custom-made for you. This program may include a combination of the following:
