Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centre’s Rice Lake residence offers a dynamic, new approach to residential addiction treatment. Ideal for individuals needing to address addiction specific issues.
Rice Lake Addiction Treatment residence, is in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion, located on the shores of Rice Lake, in Gores Landing, Ontario, approximately 20 minutes north of Cobourg. The serene lake view and clean country atmosphere makes this a perfect environment for those seeking recovery from addiction. Programming at Rice Lake residence addresses underlying mental health but with far less intensity than provided at our Erin residence. Treatment at our Rice Lake residence is ideal for those that are more psychologically stable but in need of confronting their addiction issues specifically. Due to the fact that treatment at our Rice Lake residence is more focused on treating addiction specifically and less oriented on addressing mental health, causing treatment to be more affordable.
We focus on providing therapy in a safe and healthy environment for those suffering from addiction. What makes treatment at our Rice Lake residence different is the fact that clients have the opportunity to leave the residence daily to receive treatment at our Port Hope campus.
At Trafalgar – Rice Lake we offer highly effective addiction treatment programming developed specifically to help those that are psychologically stable but in need of comprehensive and effective addiction treatment in a non-isolating, secure environment.
Our team of compassionate and highly skilled therapists and counsellors embraces the most current, cutting edge addiction treatment methods available today.
Our staff provides care that meets the standards of best practices, and focusses on each client personally – ensuring our clients are equipped with the tools needed to secure the best possible prospects of recovery.
Many who suffer from addiction and other mental health issues tend to have poor nutritional habits, it is therefore important that individuals going through addiction treatment eat properly and are exposed to the benefits of maintaining a healthy diet.
Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres prides itself on the quality of food we provide. Our chefs are highly skilled at preparing meals that are healthy, well balanced and of course, delicious. We are happy to accommodate clients with food allergies and other dietary needs/restrictions. We also work with clients to educate them on how to maintain healthy diet.
For some clients, the experience of being in a treatment program and residing in the same facility 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 30 days or longer may seem daunting and overly confining.
For clients that would prefer to get out daily, but still need the care and security available only in a residential treatment facility, our Rice Lake facility offers a unique alternative from the confines of living and receiving treatment in the same facility.
Rice Lake clients leave the residence daily for off-site treatment and programs; however, all aspects of the addiction treatment program are exactly the same as residential programming at our other facility in terms of: security, quality and comprehensiveness.
While in our care at Rice Lake, daily programming is conducted at our new state-of-the-art 5,000 sq. ft. Campus located just minutes away in Port Hope, Ontario. Each day, clients are shuttled to and from the residence, in the comfort of our own luxury coach, to the picturesque Port Hope Campus on the banks of the Ganaraska River. There they receive individual therapy, participate in group sessions and other structured activities, can utilize the fitness facility and enjoy other leisure activities.
Just like “in the real world”, clients are expected to get up in the morning, enjoy a made to order breakfast, hop on our coach to the Port Hope Campus prepared for the day’s “work” on improving their lives. Clients put in a full day of “work” at the Port Hope Campus, enjoy healthy, delicious meals and snacks, workout in the gym, and can interact with other clients in a leisurely and relaxing environment. At the end of a busy, productive day, clients are shuttled back to Rice Lake Residence in time for dinner, evening events and a good night’s sleep. It’s important to stress that although treatment and programming occur at the Port Hope Campus, when back in residence at Rice Lake, clients are still under the watchful eyes of our clinical team, and have access to therapist and counselors or medical help around the clock.
The daily commute incorporated into the treatment approach at our Rice Lake facility, is a new dimension to traditional residential addiction treatment. It instills an added degree of variety, structure and discipline to a client’s life. For many, the Rice Lake approach to treatment is far more appealing and mimics having to cope with the daily routines and challenges of life – thereby providing the client with better preparation for an addiction free life outside of rehab.
