Sarnia Addiction Services

Detox for Substance Abuse Disorder (SUD)

As a parent with a child struggling with SUD, you are certain to want the best for your child, no matter their age. That is one of the reasons we offer our skills and experience. One of the major steps in sobriety and recovery is detox. Most detox processes last between 5 to 10 days but can sometimes be longer. The length of the step depends on specific drugs (alcohol included) and the degree of abuse. In some cases, medical detox may be necessary.

Public Access or Private Services for Sarnia 

Access to addiction treatment is a vital service. These programs are mostly based on the 12-step method. As with all public services, you will encounter people from all walks of life and, unfortunately, wait time. Across Sarnia & Ontario, the healthcare sector for addiction is in high demand. In some circumstances, having someone wait is not feasible.

Good, affordable detox and treatment centres exist to serve Sarnia families. These facilities promote a tailored program suited to your loved one. And there is little to no wait time with personnel that is not overworked and can give personalized attention.

Most individuals will try talking to the addicted person first and then find a facility, but in many cases, that is the wrong sequence.

Alternative to Light Drug or Alcohol Abuse in Sarnia

There are other solutions for someone with light abuse issues. You can find outpatient treatment and addiction counsellors to aid you. Another recovery program is also available; it comprises one-on-one sessions online with a personal coach. Done in the comfort of your home in Sarnia, it involves a number of virtual meetings with very specific subjects. These sessions can raise the level of control and responsibility and give a fresh perspective on life, according to those who attended. Not everyone can benefit from this service; some need the controlled environment of a residential centre.
