Local drug rehab

Drug rehab, local rehab and environment

If you are close to or connected with someone with a drug problem or alcohol abuse issues they will tell you that they want to get help and change. But how long does this last? A few days or a week maybe, then its back to the old habit again. It’s not because these people are bad or don’t listen or don’t want to change.

In most cases it’s simply a matter of how far has this drug problem gotten, how long has this person been abusing alcohol or taking drugs. The time using any mind altering substance will have an effect on that person’s ability to overcome this condition, not to mention the physical consequences of staying off drugs or alcohol when one has been using for some time.

So you may have decided, enough is enough and got hold of a local drug addiction counselor and together worked to convince this person to act and seek help. Finally after many attempts and insistence this close friend, family member, wife, daughter or son checks himself into a drug rehab facility. You now have peace of mind and can relax a bit.

One month later he is released and doing well for the first week or two, then you notice similar behavior returning; not taking calls, late for appointments, less shaven, looks a bit tired, etc. All indicators of the addiction cycle returning. One of the ingredients for unsuccessful drug rehab treatment is: using local rehab facilities. This happens throughout Canada no matter what province you are in.

Many people do not realize this but if you check into a local rehab facility chances are you will meet a drug buddy or dealer or simply make new contact through common acquaintance. Another point to keep in mind with regards to local drug rehab centers is the area is likely to be quite re-stimulating. Familiar area, people and things can trigger cravings and cause relapse. Just looking out a local rehab dorm window and seeing the familiar skyline can trigger the need to use again.

One of the oldest well known treatments for many ailments is: “change of environment”. This has been in practice for such a long time that it has become common practice with family doctors to tell their patients; “take some time off, go down south for a week or two”. And in each case this did have a positive impact.

So if you want the best results from your treatment program, consider doing it away from your local town or city. This step in recovery cannot be omitted if there is any chance at living a full and complete drug free life.

Drug Rehabs and Oil Industry workforce

Drug Rehab Options for Oil Industry Workers

The oil industry is big business. Millions of dollars are on the line when dealing with oil companies and their ways of conducting business in each aspect of the job. Like any business, accidents and injury can mean huge losses to the company. Insurance rates go up, the company can lose employees and even be subject to lawsuits when drug or alcohol addiction is present in the work-place. Since addiction is so prevalent, it is certain there are going to be a percentage of workers who are affected by drug and/or alcohol addiction. In Canada, at the moment, the Oil Industry is prevalent in Alberta but developing in other provinces and why not it does produce an economic boom! But unfortunately this also attracts drug traffickers, they see a potential for business with money available in abundance and people needing to relax after a long stretch of shift, or celebrating their new found fortune.

Addiction problems in the workforce

A drug addict poses a threat not only to themselves, but to the company as well. However, drug addicts may otherwise be exemplary employees. Drug addiction changes a person physically, mentally and spiritually, so they must be treated on all of those fronts in order to be successful in living a drug-free life. A wonderful employee can become a hazard to all when he or she becomes a drug addict. Firing a great employee because of drug addiction may well cost the company money in the long run to train a new employee and that is assuming the new employee even works out.

Addiction solution for workers

Many drug addicts are able to work with little or no suspicion. They continue to work without getting help because they can. Besides that, there is often the worry that they will be fired from their jobs if they take time off of work to beat drug addiction. Employers that provide holistic drug and alcohol addiction services are benefiting the company and the employee. With a program available, a drug addict is more apt to ask for and get help than if they have to worry about losing their job. The company is then able to retain good workers by helping them to overcome their drug addiction and become more productive, safe and conscientious workers. Holistic drug treatment is a win-win situation.

Oil industry companies in Fort McMurray and others around the world are learning the benefits of providing holistic drug and alcohol treatment for their employees. Addiction is rampant. Therefore, treating the problem is preferable to taking a chance on firing an employee only to hire another drug addict. The cost to the oil company for comprehensive drug addiction services is minimal compared to the cost due to absences and injuries directly related to drug addiction.
