 While in Inpatient Treatment

At our drug rehab centers we treat the entire person and help to find healthy ways to cope with addiction. All of our inpatient rehab programs are evidence-based and designed individually for every client to maximize treatment effectiveness. We also provide extended support to our clients’ families and loved ones through focused and personalized care.

Addiction Treatment Team

Our highly trained and experienced team of professionals are ready to provide customized therapeutic addiction treatment for the abuse of substances or processes. This includes substances such as alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs, and heroin; and process addictions such as gambling, sex addiction and internet addiction. The foundation of our approach to treatment is addressing the concurrent mental health disorder that may be a major contributor to the addiction problem, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Our inpatient drug rehabs are well equipped to deal with different complexities of substance abuse issues as well as concurrent mental health problems.

There are many benefits to residential treatment. Ultimately, people who enter our residential treatment facilities and apply themselves have a higher chance of staying healthy and achieving long-term recovery. Other benefits include:


While residing with us, clients are protected from the outside triggers and influences that may perpetuate their addiction problem. For the duration of a client’s stay with us, they are expected to abide by the rules, actively participate in all group sessions, individual therapy sessions, and other activities, such as fitness, yoga, and art therapy. Clients become part of the Trafalgar family and are expected to respect other members of the family. While in our care, a client’s family or loved ones can rest easy know that the client is in a safe environment and working hard on regaining control of their lives.


We instill a daily routine and structure into a client’s life. Clients are expected to get up early in the morning, join the other residents for breakfast, engage in the days’ treatment activities, participate in other programs, and interact with fellow residents. At the end of the day, time is available to reflect on the day’s accomplishments, complete any assignments, enjoy a wonderful dinner, engage in some leisure activities, and get ready for lights out at 11:15 p.m.


Addiction is an isolating disease. While in treatment at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres clients become part of the community. It is important for an individual to grasp that they are not alone in their struggles with addiction. Others in the same position can bring a sense of comfort and understanding. Being part of the Trafalgar community provides for interaction, camaraderie, self-reflection, sharing of emotions, celebration of success, and help in confronting setbacks. It’s an environment where clients and staff are all striving for the same goal: RECOVERY.
