Alcohol addiction is a chronic, debilitating condition.
Someone struggling with alcohol addiction will usually require dedicated, professional support to achieve recovery. Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres offers the kind of evidence-based, client-centred treatment necessary to help clients achieve lasting recovery from alcohol addiction.
Effects of Alcohol Abuse
Sustained alcohol abuse can have a range of damaging effects on the mind and body. It severely harms the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas and other vital organs. It can also damage a person’s relationships and professional circumstances and lead them into potentially dangerous situations. Once someone has developed an addiction to alcohol, they will usually require professional support to overcome it. Accepting that treatment is necessary and committing to a program are the first steps towards lasting recovery.
When Dealing With Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol addiction has little to do with what kind of alcohol one drinks, how long one has been drinking, or even exactly how much alcohol one consumes. But it has a great deal to do with a person’s uncontrollable need for alcohol. Most alcoholics can’t just “use a little willpower” to stop drinking; they require professional help. An alcoholic is frequently in the grip of a powerful craving for alcohol, a need that can feel as strong as the need for food or water. While some people are able to recover without help, the majority of alcoholics need outside assistance to recover from their disease. Yet, with support and treatment, many are able to stop drinking and reclaim their lives.
Alcohol addiction treatment should involve evidence-based methods that can be adapted to suit the client’s needs. At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, we use treatment methods that have been proven effective to treat alcohol addiction and concurrent mental health disorders. As many people who struggle with addiction are also coping with mental health issues, we provide expert treatment for concurrent disorders. Our drug rehab centers are equipped to provide addiction treatment at highest standards. We have a highly trained and experienced team of professionals ready to provide customized therapeutic alcohol addiction treatment.
While recovery can never be guaranteed, Trafalgar provides clients with the best possible foundation for lasting recovery. As recovery is a lifelong process, we also provide all our clients with access to specialized aftercare support through our Aftercare and ContinUcare programs. Support for our clients goes on long after initial treatment is completed.
Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres’ alcohol addiction rehab program is here to help. We offer evidence-based alcohol rehab programs that are aimed for long term recovery from alcohol abuse and concurrent mental health problems. Each client at Trafalgar receives a personalized treatment program to maximize effectiveness of treatment. At Trafalgar you will be working with certified addiction counsellors and Masters’ degree therapists or higher with years of experience in treating alcohol addiction & concurrent mental health disorders.
Residential Alcohol Rehab
At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, we can help you overcome your alcohol addiction through abstinence, an increased support network from friends, family, and clinically proven treatment programs that will help you achieve recovery based on your personal needs. For some people, alcohol intake can be managed, but for a large percentage of the population long-term alcohol rehab is needed to prevent relapse. We provide you with the medical support and concurrent mental health treatment you need to stay on the path to recovery. Our alcohol addiction treatment centres provide personalized alcohol rehab programs in Toronto and Ontario.
Trafalgar West provides 30, 60 or 90 day residential treatment for alcohol addiction and offers the most comprehensive and effective addiction treatment and mental health program in Canada. We treat the addiction along with the underlying mental health issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD and other psychiatric disorders.
Trafalgar East provides 45 or 90 day residential alcohol rehab and offers comprehensive addiction specific treatment. What makes treatment at our East rehab centre different is the fact that clients have the opportunity to leave the residence daily to receive treatment at our Port Hope campus. This helps us to provide alcohol addiction treatment at highest standards.
Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
Our outpatient addiction counselling centre located in Toronto treats clients who are unable to attend residential treatment. Our 4-week Intensive Outpatient Program allows clients to receive alcohol addiction treatment similar to what they would receive in our residential treatment facility, but allows them the opportunity to continue working and go home at night.
With our unique and effective alcohol addiction recovery and mental health programs, we can make sure that your road to recovery is safe, effective and tailored to your precise needs. We are dedicated to helping you overcome your struggles. If the Intensive Outpatient Program does not fit into your schedule, or if you need to focus on a specific area of concern, we will tailor a program for you based on your schedule, needs, and budget.
As part of all Trafalgar’s alcohol addiction treatment programs we offer aftercare services to make sure that upon graduation of the client any kind of relapse will be prevented through our aftercare, ContinUCare and Continuation of Care. Some may think that if they have made it through an addiction treatment program then their problems are over. Completing an addiction treatment program is a great accomplishment but it is only the beginning of the recovery journey. Aftercare is especially important during the first few years of recovery.
Aftercare participation at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres is a chance to interact with other clients who also struggle with addiction, practice social skills and identify relapse triggers. Our Aftercare Groups enable you to have an opportunity to check in and receive constructive feedback from fellow addicts on how you are progressing.
ContinUCare enables the client and their Trafalgar care team to monitor progress on the journey to recovery and potentially identify and address areas of concern before they escalate into serious problems. It is like having your care team constantly watching out for you and there to provide help if needed.
Continuation of Care – clients will schedule a 45-minute call with the Program Manager during the first week after discharge. Addiction counselling calls will continue each week for a period of two months. Clients can arrange calls to suit their schedules within regular business hours. These counselling calls will provide an excellent way of tracking progress and discussing any issues that may arise.
