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. Addictions.ca will guide you through an exploration of those issues while also helping you discover healthier alternatives to substance abuse.
Why Do People Use
At addictions.ca, 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
A Holistic Approach
To Addiction Rehab
Humans are multifaceted creatures. We are not merely a collection of cells; in addition to our bodies, we have our minds, our souls, our relationships with those around us, our ambitions and interests, our likes and dislikes, and so much more.
All of these aspects of being human are linked. When your physical health is in decline, it can impact your mental health. Healthy relationships can lead to higher energy levels and stronger immune systems. Strong spirituality can drive passions in certain areas.
At addictions.ca, we do not see you as someone with an addiction. We see the whole of who you are, with addiction being just one piece of the puzzle. Our treatment programs are designed to treat the whole person, with respect for your physical and mental health, your spiritual, religious and cultural beliefs, your family relationships, your goals and dreams, and everything else that makes you unique.
Our Treatment Methods
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:
Exercise and nutrition
Your state of physical health can have a huge impact on your recovery process. We ensure that you have opportunities to engage in physical activity that is right for you, and that your body is getting the nutrients is needs to stay healthy.
Eventually, your time in rehab will come to an end, and you will be in a position of dealing with the challenges of the outside world. While you are with us, we will teach you some life management skills to help you cope.
Yoga, meditation and mindfulness training can help you feel grounded and calmer. It can also give you a deeper sense of perspective as you learn to cope with stress.
Art and music can be valuable forms of expression, especially for those who have difficulty talking about difficult subjects.
During these sessions, you can repair relationships with loved ones, and learn better communication skills and conflict resolution techniques. These sessions are also helpful to close friends and family members who have been impacted by the addiction
An opportunity to draw comfort and inspiration from others who have had similar challenges and experiences, and to share your own insights to help others in the group.
One-on-one sessions with a trained therapist, not only to help you explore difficult subjects in a safe environment but to monitor your progress and if necessary, adapt your program to your changing needs.
