Addiction Rehabilitation Centre

Receiving the right care in a safe and non-judgemental environment

Is alcohol and drug addiction a part of mental health?

Mental health is defined by the state of well-being of the mind.

Addiction rehabilitation is a process that involves different types of therapy to help you live an addiction-free life. Drug and alcohol addiction is a mental health issue and affects our overall health, yet it has been disregarded and stigmatized by our society. Stigma prevents us from understanding the real issues that are related to addiction. The way we think and judge, in addition to the emotional pain that many already deal with, prevents the ones who are struggling with it to seek treatment.

Addiction like any other mental illness is no different than physical illness; they all negatively impact our health. Dealing with a heart problem, a broken leg, anxiety, or depression is no different than suffering from alcohol and drug addiction. Any kind of illness is a sign of poor health. That is why seeking help and finding the right treatment is very important. When we suffer from anxiety, depression or other mental illnesses, our wellbeing is compromised. We need to take care of our body as a whole and not only parts of it. After all, we cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mind.

Addiction is not the first choice we make in life. Often people turn to alcohol, drugs and other substances to find some relief and deal with the excessively painful emotions that are brought by any physical or emotional traumatic events. With that in mind, the compassion, the professional knowledge and the experience of our team deliver the care that each person deserves. 

What the addiction rehabilitation looks like?

Physical rehabilitation

Renourishing your body with the right nutrients that have been lacking during substance use and alcohol abuse. From juices and smoothies suitable for all stages of detoxification and nourishment replacement to balanced meals for proper food intake.

Group therapy

This therapy has been proven to benefit our clients to gain social skills and support. Members of the group uplift and understand each other as they discover that they are not alone. There is no judgement, and they help each other see things from a different point of view.

Family therapy

Family plays an important part in the client’s rehabilitation.

Addiction and mental health illnesses affect not only the individual but the entire family. Often, family members lack knowledge on the issue and thus do not provide the right environment for success. It is important that all family members have a good understanding of the addiction and learn how to cope with the challenges they face while trying to help their loved ones.

Maintenance

Follow-up care is the maintenance phase of the recovery.

Often, clients do not give the right importance to this part of the rehabilitation process. They may believe that the work is done once out of the treatment facility. Our experience has shown that follow-up care is an important part of recovery as detoxing and rehabilitation processes are. We need to remember that the small everyday changes and achievements make us successful.
