This guidance can be toward the next step you can take with the person if they are not ready to change. It can also be a direct contact with the appropriate treatment centre. They will suggest the services best suited to the person you want to help.

When choosing a recovery program, one should consider the philosophy, lifestyle and recovery needs of the person with the addiction. Finding sobriety is easiest when the program makes sense to the individual and addresses their issues. You might find a centre outside Fort McMurray that fits more with the person.

How Should I Bring the Subject of Rehab?

Arguments and heated discussions occur with no results when someone you know has an addiction problem. Many sleepless nights and anxious days are part and parcel of the situation. When the addiction is not extreme, meaning when life is not pending in the balance, one can address it patiently. There are more successful ways of talking rehab to a person. Find out more by clicking on “TALKING ABOUT REHAB.”

In extreme cases, one should think of intervention when the addiction is out of hand and life-threatening that would be the solution. Seeking a professional interventionist will help coordinate and get favourable results. Interventions can be emotionally charged, so having a professional will smooth out the process to ensure all remain respectful and effective.

Fort McMurray Public Access Options

You may want a public access recovery service in Fort McMurray. Although the wait time can be long, people can get admitted faster with a physician’s or an addiction counsellor’s referral. So please talk with your family doctor about this possibility in your region.

Subsidized centres are a good choice. However, many public centres will require the person to be drug and alcohol-free several days before admission. A person choosing public access treatment must be able to “stay clean” for some days. Specifically when detox is done, and beds are limited at the facility. This situation makes attending public facilities a bit more difficult for some.

There are some misconceptions about private treatment centres. Some are affordable. Before making a decision, please give us a call. We’d love to tell you about it.
