  • Like any other chronic disease, drug addiction
    can be treated and cured but only if the person
    afflicted wants to be treated and cured. A

    because the addiction did not happen in a day, it
    is going to take some time for the treatment to
    start working. When seeking treatment for an
    addiction, the person needs to take the following

Great Tips to Follow during Alcohol Detoxification
  • Planned withdrawal from alcohol
  • This method is pocket friendly and can be done at
    home. Cutting down on alcohol consumption
    requires dedication as it is not easy to just
    stop drinking. You can start by cutting down by
    one, then followed by a few more until you are
    able to drop the habit altogether.
  • Alcohol withdrawal can be followed by symptoms
    such as anxiety, irritability, fatigue and even
    seizures. Try to monitor your symptoms and seek
    immediate medical help when you sense extreme
  • Medical detox
  • Medical detox is usually administered at a
    medical facility as some are highly addictive.
    Not only do they suppress the urge for alcohol
    but also help reduce the withdrawal symptoms that
    follow thereafter. They also help one to sleep.
    They include Thiamine, also known as vitamin B
    and Anxiolytic.

What To Look For When Searching For An Addiction
Clinic In Toronto
  • Professional Staff
  • A good clinic must have professional
    practitioners, from doctors and counselling staff
    to trusted volunteers. The volunteers can be
    former drug addicts with real life experiences.
    Trusted professionals are a key element in any
    addiction clinic as they build trust and are
    knowledgeable in their fields. They understand
    addiction problems well and they can deal with
    situations like anger and other hostile
    situations that may arise from patient outbursts.
  • Hospitable Clinics
  • No one wants to visit an addiction clinic that
    will treat them like addicts. A good clinic will
    warmly welcome you and assure you of their
    commitment to helping you recover. They will
    provide you with a clean place to stay as well as
    the motivation to achieve your recovery goals.
  • Gender Specific
  • It is also important that a clinic has a
    specialized treatment program for both males and
    females. Each group needs different care as their
    needs are different. This way, a client can
    understand how their beliefs, knowledge, and
    experiences contributed to their addiction
    moreover, they will understand how a particular
    substance affects them and how to beat the

  • After Care Treatment
  • A clinic should also be able to offer
    comprehensive outpatient aftercare to follow up
    on a recovering addicts progress. By doing so,
    they minimize the chances of relapse and ensure
    full recovery. The aftercare assessment and
    monitoring should be able to go on for as long as
    it takes a client to achieve full recovery.
  • Affordable
  • Finding a clinic that offers friendly payment
    options is also important. A good clinic should
    have different payment packages so that you can
    pay what and when you can afford as you continue
    your recovery program.
  • Flexible Schedule
  • You want to be able to attend treatment while
    continuing your day to day activities like
    earning money or attend classes. An addiction
    clinic should be able to work out a program that
    allows you to continue treatment, either alone or
    in group sessions.

Addiction Rehab Process
  • Intake
  • This is where you gather all information you need
    and find out more about the rehab process. You
    get to ask the Centre all sorts of questions
    based on your status and the Centre does the same
    in return. There are some diagnostic tests that
    help everyone to better understand your needs.
    More personal details like ones financial state,
    family health background, and personal history
    will also be needed. You should also be aware of
    the different types of rehab facilities so that
    you know which is best for you. Some clinics
    render outpatient services only while others
    include inpatient services or a combination of
    both. Whatever program you choose has the same
    intake process and it will be completed by a
    professional counsellor.
  • Detox
  • This stage is basically a cleansing program that
    is tailored to ensure that the body is rid of all
    the available traces of substances like drugs or
    alcohol. This detox process will be determined by
    i body metabolism, the type of drug previously
    used, the amount of time the patient has had the
    addiction and any previous addictions. It is
    highly advised that the detox process is
    completed in a professional medical setting
    because sometimes the bodys response can be
    extremely severe.

Addiction Rehab Process
  • Rehab
  • This stage is where the patients are able to come
    to a point of realization they acquire skills
    that help them go about their new life and
    prevent them from relapse. The patients also gain
    insight into what led to their addictions and how
    to deal with them accordingly. They are exposed
    to several therapy sessions including individual
    therapy, where the patients spend time focusing
    on themselves and learning how to refrain from
    substance abuse. There is also group therapy,
    which is helpful because patients are able to
    interact with others who have been through the
    same experience and gain much needed support and
    advice. Family therapy is another type of therapy
    session this enhances an individuals chances of
    recovery because the family is able to understand
    how to best support their loved one.
  • Recovery
  • This is one of the most challenging stages of
    rehabilitation. It never truly ends because it
    can be a lifetime process for some. Once one
    leaves rehab, the temptation to return to their
    same habits might increase. Because of this, some
    patients relapse. However, some Rehabilitation
    Centers offer follow up programs and after
    treatment counselling to prevent and address this
    situation. The patients can also engage in
    activities that help them maintain their new
    drug-free lifestyle.

Private Addiction Treatment
  • The first step is the most important one it is
    the realization that you have a problem with
    alcohol or drugs and admitting to yourself that
    you are ready to make a positive change in your

    whether it be an inpatient, outpatient, or
    twelve-step program.
  • Reach out to your friends and family that are
    sober for their support. Creating a network of
    sober friends and family member is going to be
    useful when you start your treatment.
  • It is necessary that you learn how to control
    your triggers and cravings you should also
    participate in an aftercare program to ensure you
    can maintain your sobriety.
  • Start to build a new life for yourself this
    means choosing new hobbies and setting new life
  • If you do have a relapse, do not get discouraged
    in your recovery just make a plan to get back on
    track right away.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Private
Addiction Treatment
  • Advantages
  • The Level of Amenities
  • These private centers tend to offer top notch
    amenities such as luxurious pools and spa
    treatments. All this is done to make the patient
    more comfortable and help avoid any chances of
  • Favourable Location
  • It is evident that these private centers are
    located in the ideal locales for these programs.
    They are mostly in areas with beautiful scenery,
    which keeps the patients away from any form of
    toxic environments. For example, in the USA, most
    private centers are found in Malibu, New York,
    and other prime locations.
  • Disadvantages
  • Cost
  • Judging from the location to the social amenities
    and the luxurious life, it is indeed evident that
    these centers cost a pretty penny. This becomes
    a challenge because some people cannot afford to
    pay for the treatment in this private centers,
    making it inaccessible for them. This hence makes
    treatment inaccessible for them. Some private
    centers do not provide insurance billing or even
    accept insurance payments.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Private
Addiction Treatment
  • The Location
  • Because these centers are located in unique and
    beautiful places, some people who would love to
    seek out treatment there are unable to do so.
    There are even others who not only cannot pay for
    the treatment and accommodation there, but also
    cannot afford to travel to the clinic. This
    becomes a major drawback to these centers.
  • Uninsured people
  • This is one major downside if people going
    through the private treatment because they have
    to pay the fees themselves. This is difficult
    because the high costs of these private
    facilities can be daunting and leave patients in
  • Dealing with peers
  • Some clients find it difficult to open up to
    people they do not know, especially because they
    are all from different backgrounds.
