How quickly can I get my relative into a private treatment program?
You can enter within 24h or less if needed. A person is hardly ever put on a waitlist in the private sector. To get immediate assistance for an Ontario drug rehab centre in the private sector, call us. Speak with an addiction referral counsellor with many years of experience working in the field. They know the subject. A key factor in recovery is locating the right treatment program suited to the person you want to help. Just call the number below.
Over the years, Ontario has also become affected by the opiate addiction crisis. More specific to Oxys, Percocet, Heroine and in recent years, Fentanyl. Discomfort often accompanies withdrawal from these drugs and can sometimes be life-threatening. In this case, a person would undergo a Medical Assisted Detox.
Experienced detox specialists and medical staff monitor the person during this period of recovery. Most private treatment centres ensure safe withdrawal in-house, with medical support staff available 24/7. Heavy alcohol consumption and other drugs may also warrant medical detox. Our Specialists can determine the need for the service for individual cases.
How can one choose the right program for a loved one? Deciding whether one program is correct or not requires knowledge of the treatment approach of that centre. Addiction Referral & Consultation Services’ counsellors are knowledgeable in that area. Also, having data on the substance abuser’s issues is important. The information allows connecting the person with what is best for them. Our experienced referral counsellors work with a wide range of private treatment centres in Canada. Part of choosing a suitable facility includes knowing the centers focus on addiction. The options for treatment is important.
“What about subsidized treatment programs in Ontario?”
It is an option you or a relative can choose. However, there are some crucial facts to know about this solution. In the public sector, there is always an unavoidable delay with admission. There is a protocol to follow, and it can only be done that way. Often the center will insist that the struggling addict be three to five days drug and alcohol-free before arrival. Another aspect to know about public-sponsored programs is the treatment approach. There is a wider variety of methods used by the private treatment centres.

“My son/daughter says he or she can stop on their own, can they?”
It has occurred with mild abuse cases and very strong-willed, self-determined individuals, but it isn’t the case with most substance abuse problems. People can stop for a few days, maybe a week. That usually is when the cravings reappear, followed by relapse.
There are also environmental triggers that stimulate the want for drugs or alcohol. A person is at risk without the tools to deal with triggers and will eventually relapse. Each failure brings a feeling of powerlessness and can have a debilitating effect on the person.
Paying for a program can be done in many ways, just as you would for any other service. In the field of addiction, often, the situation is urgent, and funds may not be readily available. Some private treatment programs will offer specific third-party payment methods. Others will accept insurance coverage or payment plans.
The cost for this service varies from centre to centre. The type of facility, any extra services offered, and the length of the program are all factors in pricing. Program cost in Ontario can range from the price of a funeral to a small compact car, and of course, some are more expensive.
