Saskatchewan Drug & Alcohol Rehab
The impact of addiction on those suffering is undeniable. It devastates personal relationships, career, finances, and every aspect of daily life. As it progresses, it has many effects on both mental and physical well-being. In the short term, these can include changes in appetite, weight loss or gain, seizures, stroke, mental confusion and brain damage. Prolonged frequent exposure to drugs or alcohol can result in liver damage, heart disease, anxiety, depression, or other mental health conditions.
Your trusted partner in addiction treatment and mental health recovery
We understand a problem
The rate of addiction in Saskatchewan is higher than the national average. There is also a large First Nations population who have been fighting for treatment that is consistent with spiritual, and cultural beliefs. This is an ongoing issue for Aboriginal communities everywhere. Our center provides care unique to the needs of every person. Our staff is experts in treatments that are inclusive and culturally sensitive. As part of the intake process, a fully individualized plan is created for each person based on family and medical history, the specific addiction, as well as its severity and longevity.
Sometimes the best solution for those with addictions is to go to a faraway place for treatment, in order to be completely removed from the stresses and triggers of real life. 1000 Islands Addictions Treatment Centre is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, and it provides a setting that is serene and conducive to healing.
Do We Treat?
Substance abuse comes in many forms. For some people, it means occasional drinking that evolved into alcoholism. For others, it starts as medical use of painkillers that, almost unnoticed, spirals into an addiction. And for others, more than one substance may be involved.
No matter what your circumstances are, we have the skill, experience, and passion to help you overcome your drug or alcohol addiction.
Addiction often goes undetected and unreported for years, putting the individual at great risk for serious health problems, overdose and death. Intervention by a team of professionals is crucial and offers the best chance of long-term sobriety. Family and friends are an integral part of this journey, from the first day until well after the addict has completed rehab and returned to their new and better life.
