Private Drug Rehab Canada—Assistance

We are not a treatment facility but assist people who are looking for alcohol or drug rehab centres. We help find the best facility in Canada for the person in question. We guide them to private services that provide the treatment method suited for them. Understandably, people want sobriety and look for the best rehab in Canada, and we can help.

Most people do not know where to start. It is, by far, a turbulent situation when you realize that the person you care about has a drug or alcohol problem. And it’s beginning to disrupt life and living.

How do you talk to someone about their consumption? And how do you go about finding help? And how do you bring the subject up?

On this page, we will talk about the different treatment plans and rehab settings available to you. You will have the information to choose the best drug rehab centre for that person. Of course, if you need help, we are just a phone call away.

Rehab Canada & Public Access

Unfortunately, drug rehab Canada’s public services with immediate admission are hard to find. It is that way whether one searches for detox, outpatient, or residential treatment programs. With perseverance and determination, a person can access a public recovery centre. However, one should understand certain stipulations.

Many government facilities do not offer detox services. So, most will ask the person to be detoxed and be substance-free several days before admission to their program. That means that an individual must “stay clean” if a bed is not available after detox. For some, this condition makes it harder, if not impossible.

For public access treatment, please visit our public access contact page.

We have different listings for major areas across Canada you can visit below.

Evaluating the Needs in Choosing a Rehab in Canada

When choosing a facility in Canada, there are a few things to consider.

  • The length of substance misuse
  • The type of drugs used (alcohol is considered a drug)
  • The amount of substances used and
  • Any existing medical issues.

This information determines the type of program needed as follows:

  • Medical or non-medical detox,
  • Long-term or short-term residential,
  • Day or evening program,
  • Addiction counselling or coaching.

Rehab Canada Treatment Options

What to Choose

When you call a facility, they will ask questions (do an assessment) to evaluate the person’s required care level. Here is some information that will enable you to eliminate some centres and shorten your search.

  •  Medical or non-medical detox

Medical detox will be needed when someone has been drinking heavily or is a longtime user. Polydrug users, medical conditions and specific other drugs like benzos will need medical detox.

  •  Long-term or short-term residential

Someone with a longstanding heavy addiction history will require a long-term residential drug rehab.

  •  Day or evening program

When someone is functional but feels they are losing control, a day or evening program might help. This program is also known as an outpatient treatment.

  •  Addiction counselling or coaching

Addiction counselling or coaching is also a service for those who are functional but are worried about losing control over their consumption. Since the pandemic, many offer this service online in Canada.

What is the Cost of Private Treatment

The price for private treatment in Canada varies depending on several factors. These include the program type, treatment duration, level of care, single or shared accommodations and other specific services. Some facilities will have a swimming pool, orthopedic beds, saunas, state of the art gym and more.

In Canada, a residential program starts at around $7,000 and can go up to $50,000 for luxury rehabs. The price does not determine the treatment program’s effectiveness but indicates special amenities and a luxurious environment or specialty services.

 Cellphone & drink.

The caregiving and understanding of its employees and the facility’s philosophy are several times more vital than price. The price has very little to do with the success in recovery.

There are different payment options to consider:

  • Payment plans, which some centres may offer.
  • Medical financing from companies specializing in covering medical expenses.
  • Insurance coverage.

What Is the Best Rehab in Canada?

An individual is unique, and as such, they react differently to the same approach.

Choosing the best rehab in Canada depends on the person with the addiction.

Treatment approaches in drug rehabs in Canada are varied. For example, some people may feel uncomfortable in a large group and prefer smaller ones. Searching for a “home-like feel” rehab would be a good start. Someone with no religious inclination may feel uneasy with religious-based programs. The most widespread approach is the 12-step program. Many will vouch for its soundness, while others can’t relate.

Caring and experienced staff are common denominators in determining the best rehab in Canada. But the “relatability” of the program to the person undergoing the treatment is crucial.

What are the Criteria for Addiction in Canada

In Canada, the criteria for addiction are described by the 4C’s, that is:

  • Craving
  • Loss of control of the amount or frequency of use
  • Compulsion to use
  • Continued substance use despite consequences.

At this writing, the most popular drug in Canada is alcohol. Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen a shift in calls from opioids and street drugs to alcohol.

The Canadian Substance Use Costs and Harms Report-2007-2020 reported substance use costs per substance. Alcohol, the most costly, accounts for $19.7 billion or 40.1% of the total costs, while opioid use cost $7.1 billion in 2020.

How to Talk About Rehab to Someone?

Many families face the same problem. The person is getting out of control but does not see or want to admit it. Frequently, a conversation turns into an argument, which adds chaos to an already heavy situation.

So, how do you talk to someone about their problem?

No one likes being wrong, and no one likes opposition. Confronting someone with an addiction cannot be done with hostility, and you cannot afford to become hostile no matter what their attitude. There are definite dos and don’ts in this area.

This website provides a series on the subject of interventions that we hope might be useful to you.

You can find more information in the intervention series here.
