women struggling with drug abuse in Canada that needs help

The process of addiction recovery involves various types of therapy, self-discovery, self-discipline and a learning curve. It provides a vital foundation for long-term abstinence using a variety of scientifically proven methods. During drug rehab, a team of addiction experts and a ready-made peer support network guide you through the acute stages of change. You’ll learn healthy ways of coping with your emotions, gain knowledge about how substance use disorders work and start to build the self-esteem necessary to stay sober.

If you or a loved one is struggling with drug addiction please contact us or call 778-430-1212.

For some substances, you’ll need to go through the detoxification process to flush all harmful toxins from your bloodstream. You may require medication-assisted treatment to help ease withdrawal symptoms and prevent the body from going into shock. Medication is usually gradually tapered down until your body adapts to the change, and eventually you’ll be substance-free. We’d recommend that most people who have been using daily go through drug detox to give them a clear mind and body for treatment.

Therapy and Counselling for Addiction

When you’re addicted to drugs, your entire lifestyle adapts to facilitate drug use as your priority. This may occur over several weeks, months or years, and it’s different for each person. As such, a different combination of therapy and complementary treatments is useful for everyone. Recovery Works offers an extensive range of empirically tested and holistic options so that each individual can determine what works best for them.

We offer group therapy, individual counselling, psychoeducation, fitness training, Satori chair sessions, Alpha-Stim sessions, Step work, trauma therapy and yoga. Additionally, because addiction is a disease that affects the entire family, we offer a family therapy program. A complete change in lifestyle is likely to affect the people closest to you and therapy together can help you to understand each other’s perspectives, communicate better and rebuild trust.

The 12-Step Program

12-Step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, have been the most prominent addiction treatment courses for a reason — they’re highly effective. They provide accountability, allow attendees to vent and express themselves and teach them how to listen effectively. Clients usually complete the first five Steps while at Recovery Works, but some go all the way. We recommend all alumni continue attending AA or NA once they’ve successfully completed a rehab program.

Holistic therapy means therapy that treats the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Complementary treatments make group therapy and individual counselling sessions more effective because they address your lifestyle. A healthy routine, regular exercise, yoga, psychoeducation, Sartori chair sessions and Alpha-Stim sessions improve overall well-being by addressing different aspects of your mental health.

What Should You Look for When Choosing a Drug Rehab Centre?

  • Look for a rehab facility that offers a wide array of therapy options.
  • The best rehabs help clients to carefully plan how they’re going to stay sober once the program ends.
  • Addiction is a family disease so the option for family therapy is a must for most people.
  • The modern approach to addiction treatment is holistic, and the best addiction treatment programs help clients to change their lifestyle and mindset.
