Rehab Centres in BC

Evaluating Needs and Severity

Addiction History and Physical Health

When choosing a facility, one must consider several things. These include the length of substance misuse, what drug(s), and any existing medical issues. This information will determine the type of program needed.

For example, someone with a longstanding addiction will most likely need a long-term residential program. Someone with a medical situation, a polydrug user, or a heavy drinker may need a medically supervised detox.

Rehab Centres in BC, Relating to their Program

Also, a person must be able to relate to the method used in recovery. For example, one may not do well in a faith-based program and be more at ease with group counselling. A person can do better with one-on-one counselling rather than group counselling.

Type of Environment

Lastly, an individual might thrive in a larger group setting, while others like smaller groups with a home-type feel.

Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in BC

One could need a 30-day treatment, which is considered a short-term treatment. You can find long-term treatments of 60 days, 90 days, and some span a year.

Outpatient, Addiction Counselling or Coaching

When one still functions in everyday affairs, an addiction counsellor or a day or evening program (outpatient) can be enough to help. Since the pandemic, one can readily find coaching and addiction counselling online.

Confronting a Loved One with Their Addiction

Too many times, we hear parents or spouses telling us that arguments and chaos occur when they mention rehab. How can one start a conversation without having it turn into a nightmare? Why is it hard for someone to see or admit a problem?

The fact is that people do not like to admit a problem or “weakness” of any kind. Also, most of the time, people start abusing drugs because of underlying issues. The following issues might shed light on these aspects:

Getting Help for Yourself

All too often, entire families suffer from substance use disorder, not just the user. Feelings of despair, anxiety and powerlessness are usually felt. Understandably, it is worrisome, to say the least.

Finding support for yourself can be empowering. Groups like Al-Anon and Nar-Anon, or Parents of Addicted Loved Ones, are groups of people in the same situation you are in. Exchanging experiences and coping mechanisms can be a tremendous relief for family members and friends. Please visit their website for more information.
