Perhaps you want to conduct your own search for a Nova Scotia drug rehab centre. Here, you’ll discover tips and guidelines to assist you.
In evaluating an individual for addiction treatment, one should consider several factors, such as:
These are a good starting point in determining the most suitable treatment program in Nova Scotia or elsewhere. The person may require a medical detox. They may need a short-term or long-term recovery or a specialized treatment approach.
Usually, when you call a treatment centre, the person answering you will do an assessment. It will help determine if the facility can deliver the right program.
You may be looking for a public access addiction service in Nova Scotia. Government-subsidized centres are a good choice. But one must keep in mind that admission time is longer. It can be from a few weeks to months of wait time.
In some areas, 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.
Also, public centres that offer no in-house detox will require the person to be substance-free several days before admission. A family choosing a government facility must take this into account. Verifying that the facility offers detox is an important thing to ask. “Staying clean” is difficult for some people and makes public treatment centres a bit more challenging.
