When you call from Regina, our referral counsellor evaluates the extent of the addiction. They will ask about the person’s drug of choice, duration of use, and any existing medical conditions. Your answers guide them to the next course of action to take with the individual.
If the person is unwilling to seek help, they can coach you on helping them to do so. Below are a few guidelines you can follow to help you along. If the individual is ready to get help, they will recommend the most suitable services.
They facilitate contact with the chosen centre if a residential rehab is necessary. The centre will call you so that you can ask them any other questions. Once you are satisfied, they will set up admission. You can contact us anytime if a problem occurs; we’ll be happy to help.
Some people may not need a residential rehab centre. Others might require long-term rehabilitation. An addiction counsellor or a day or evening program (outpatient) can be enough to help others. There are options, and it all depends on the drug of choice, addiction length, and severity.
When choosing a facility, one should consider the person’s philosophy, lifestyle and recovery needs. The program should make sense to the person and address the right issues.
A centre outside Regina could be more fitting. So it would be necessary to leave the city or province. Being on unfamiliar ground has its advantages and can also be therapeutic.
Some people may not need a structured residential drug rehab centre. Our referral counsellors base their guidance on the person’s length and type of addiction. There are many addiction services available for Regina residents.
Medical detox is not necessary in most cases. But a person with a long-standing drinking problem could need this service. Detoxing from alcohol and other drugs is physically demanding and can be life-threatening. A person with a medical condition can also require this service. Read more on medically assisted detox.
A residential centre is a live-in, and structured environment. A 30-day program is what most facilities offer. Some can provide a 60-day program or longer.
An addiction counsellor or an outpatient program may be all that is needed for someone who still functions in everyday affairs but feels their control slipping away.
Our online coaching service can also be a solution. The service contains virtual one-on-one sessions with a Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist.
Arguments and heated discussions often arise without resolution when someone you know is grappling with addiction. Sleepless nights and anxious days become inherent to the situation.
If the addiction is not severe, meaning there is no immediate threat to life, one can approach it patiently. There are more effective ways to discuss rehabilitation with the person. Find out more by clicking on “TALKING ABOUT REHAB.”
In severe instances, it is wise to consider an intervention. When the addiction becomes a threat to life, it is advisable to seek the assistance of a professional interventionist. Interventions can bring up many displeasing incidents and emotions on the part of the participants.
The professional will assist in organizing and maintaining smooth operations, ensuring that everyone remains respectful and efficient. Find out how to plan an intervention by clicking “MORE ON INTERVENTION.”
