Drug Abuse & Drug Addiction Treatment in Toronto

Our goal will always be simple: to keep our word to our residents and help them through every stage of alcohol and drug addiction treatment. Our focus on quality care helps us deliver a clear message to anyone wanting to overcome addiction in a caring, supportive environment. Everything we do and everything we are is a reflection of the profound experience we want for those in our care.

What Counts as a Drug?

Substance use is a slippery slope. Drugs are addictive substances that lead to the user taking larger and larger doses just to get the same buzz. This increases the danger to the user, and can have adverse consequences such as behavioral changes, a compulsion, chemical dependence, cravings and unnatural production of dopamine.

Break the
Addiction and
Pick Yourself Up

If you’re tired of the dependancy and negative effects that drugs are having on your life or the lives of the ones you love, drug treatment can help you overcome the addiction and help you live a drug-free life. A drug-free life means:

  • Better moods
  • Clear judgement
  • Control over your own life
  • Repaired relationships with the ones you love
  • Better performance at work
  • Better physical and mental health

At the Canadian Centre for Addictions, we can help you end substance abuse and recover from addiction in our Ontario treatment centre. If you suffer from alcohol addiction, check out our Toronto alcohol rehab program. We provide extensive support for the person suffering from drug or alcohol dependence and for the people in that person’s life.

How Long Does Rehab Take?

It depends on you, your life, and your circumstances. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer because your situation isn’t the same as anyone else’s. The good news is that we’re here for you for as long as it takes. You can stay in rehab for as long as you need, and we’ll work with you to tailor our care to your unique situation.

Studies show that the longer a person stays in rehab, the better their chances of successfully recovering. The longer you spend with us, the more time you’ll have to build positive habits and treat the causes of your addiction, rather than merely the symptoms. That type of work doesn’t get done overnight. But it does get done.

Even after your stay in our facility ends, the support you receive will continue. The Canadian Centre for Addictions provides outpatient aftercare services for up to a year.

So how long does it take?
It takes as long as it takes, and we’ll stay with you through it.
