Detoxification Canada

Detoxification is the first process towards rehabilitation. It is a phase that can take from one day up to 14 days. It depends on the substance used by the addict as well as the length and quantity of the drug or alcohol used by the addict. The detox phase of the rehabilitation is never enough if the psychological aspects have not been address such as returning to the same environment, drug addicted friends and any other environmental aspect that will trigger back the addiction.

Detox centers is the process of getting the person off the immediate effects of the drugs, medication or alcohol. Detox is not intend to bring the person off of the long term effects of the substance. What needs to be achieved with a good detox center is to get the person out of physical pain, to restore a standard sleeping schedule and proper eating habits.

There are some instances when someone would need a medical detox. Drugs such as benzodiazepine, anti depressant, alcohol and other medication needs medical detox. There are also a few street drugs where addicts would need a medical detox such as certain opiates.

If you have any doubts whether you need a medical detox or not, please contact a doctor or a professional on addiction.

     

Drug rehabilitation Canada

Rehabilitation is the second phase of treatment for addiction. Rehabilitation helps the person to gain control of his life. In choosing a program, you must look closely at the rehabilitation phase and ask yourself the following questions.

Will the program bring back the ability to better deal with life?

You need to make sure that it addresses the weak points of the addict in order to get them to take responsibility their life, family, job, finance etc.

Does the program use medication?

Medication might be necessary when there is a physical problem. As far as addiction, the programs that use medication have proven to be unsuccessful to cure the addiction. You cannot cure an addiction with a pill. That would be fantastic but the fact is it just gives the person a "legal" addiction as it is prescribed. There is nothing in life that can be cured with pills. So if a program gives you whatever "good reasons" they use medication, it does not work.

Drug Rehab Centers Services will never refer you to a program that uses medication to cure an addiction.

The reason or the cause of addiction due to the fact that the person is not in control of his life. This out of control brings an overwhelm towards the situation. Drugs or alcohol is used to counter that overwhelm. The addict does not have the ability to control certain aspects of life. Drugs and alcohol becomes the solution.

To understand properly the meaning of the above let's go back to basics.

Let's look up the word “rehabilitation”.

Rehabilitation: To restore to good health or useful life, as through therapy and education. American Heritage Dictionary fourth edition.

When you choose a drug treatment treatment, you need to make sure that it will restore his ability. It will enable the person to function well in life without drugs or alcohol. Addiction is a way to get rid of a physical or emotional pain. Instead of getting the person to “live with his problem”, you need to help the person to improve his ability to deal with life.

Drug treatment centers over the years have not concentrated on rehabilitation. You need to make sure that the rehabilitation treatment addresses the real problem and bring the person on top of it. This is then that the addict will get his life back.

     

Bio physical treatment Canada

Bio physical treatment is done after the withdrawal phase. This treatment addresses the biophysical and biochemical imbalances with a unique sauna program, nutrients, vitamins and minerals that eliminates toxins from the body, to shut down the cravings.

When the substance travels in the bloodstream, it goes through the liver, metabolizes. Those metabolites stay in the fatty tissues for years and can trigger back cravings years later. See a full scientific report on the bio physical treatment.

The bio physical treatment has been known as one of the most successful treatments.

     

Twelve steps Canada

The Twelve Step tradition is a time tested method of recovery from various obsessive-compulsive behaviors which the affected individuals believe have made their lives unmanageable.  These simple tools for living have been used by millions of people to successfully change their lives and recover from negative and even life threatening behaviors.  They are based on a set of Spiritual (not religious) principles originally created by Alcoholics Anonymous in the United States in 1935.  Anonymity as a Spiritual principle is the underpinning of the Twelve-Step way of life.  Sharing and supporting in groups with like-minded individuals and ongoing fellowship is a major ingredient in the success of the program.

The twelve steps address different "problems" such as alcohol abuse, drug abuse, overeating abuse, gambling etc.

Drug info Canada

The Drug Situation Report — 2005 provides a strategic overview of the illicit drug trade in Canada. In the past few years the problem of illicit synthetic substances has evolved from a concern for Canadian law enforcement to becoming a national priority. To accurately reflect the ever growing role that Ecstasy, meth and chemical precursors play in the Canadian illicit drug trade, a full section has been dedicated to each of these commodities. In 2004r, a section on prosecution of the illicit drug trade cases was also added to look et the extent of charges related to drug related incidents, as well as the results of court proceedings. For the second consecutive year we make reference to the 2004 Canadian Addiction Survey in the Demand section of this report. At the time of publishing, data for the 2005 Survey remained unavailable. The RCMP is currently in the process of updating its reporting systems, and, as such, statistics for this report were not collected in the same manner as in previous years. As a result, comparison between the 2005 seizure amounts with those from previous years will be absent in this report. The seizure numbers used in this report were taken from the submission to the United Nations Annual Reports Questionnaire (ARQ). It is important to note that Statistics Canada doesn’t report separately on Marihuana and Hashish, but rather combines their data under the larger category of Cannabis. As well, specific statistics on synthetic drugs are not available as they fall under the broader category of Other substances.

In the year of 2002, more than 600,000 Canadians were dependent on alcohol, and nearly 200,000, on illicit substances. Depression was common among people who were alcohol- or drug-dependent. Heavy drinking tended to lead to depression, but drinking.

How much of a concern is drug use in Canada?

Like alcohol abuse, drug abuse is among the country’s most serious health and social problems. Although substance use isn't as costly to the economy as alcohol use is, it still takes its toll.

Economic costs

Illicit drugs cost the Canadian economy about $1.4 billion in 1992, which is just a fraction of the total cost of all different types of drug abuse, including alcohol use and tobacco use. Substance abuse in average cost the Canadian economy over $18.4 billion in 1992. Drug abuse affects the Canadian economy because of the cost of:

  • people missing work because of accidents
  • disease
  • people dying
  • direct health care
  • police and other types of law enforcement.

Death and injury

In 1992, 732 individuals died in Canada from illicit drugs. Of them, 641 were men and 91 were women. In the same year, 7,095 Canadians were hospitalized because they used illegal substances.

Crime

Over half of the people who were accused of murder in 1991 and 1992 had used some kind of drug beforehand. Approximatively 4% of all murder victims were on drugs, and one in ten had both alcohol and drugs in their systems.

In 1993, 56,811 drug-related offences were committed. Cannabis (marijuana)-related crimes accounted for about two-thirds of these crimes. Cocaine-related offences represented just under a quarter of them.

Rates of drug use

Compared to the amount of individuals who consume alcohol, the amount of Canadians over the age of 15 who use illicit drugs (except for marijuana) is small. Cannabis is the exception; the 2004 Canadian Addictions Survey (CAS) discovered that 44.5% of Canadians have used marijuana at least once in their life. Males are more anticipated to use than females. About 70% of young people between the ages of 18 and 24 have used marijuana at least once.
