Addiction is complex and affects people differently. Addiction treatment at Alternative to Addiction Creating Centre begins with a clinical care team developing a plan to address your specific recovery needs. Alternative to Addiction Creating Centre professionals in the fields of addiction counselling, psychology, psychiatry, spiritual care, and family care collaborate to provide you with the best foundation for lifelong recovery.
Prior to discharge, each client goes through a personalized and comprehensive Relapse Prevention Plan which encompasses Behaviourial Therapies and Counselling. We recognise that post treatment, early recovery is a vulnerable time. A strong continuing care (follow-up) program is important to help you stay sober longer and minimize the risk of relapse, in addition to various continuing care groups and outpatient services. As a part of the follow-up program, the client and family is expected to visit the treatment centre (or online via Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp) post discharge and review any ongoing challenges. Local support group meeting addresses are provided. Regular contact with the client is established via social media, emails, Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp.
