It is helpful to understand what the admission process entails when entering rehab, what to bring and what not to bring. At our Rehab Centre, we understand that making the decision to seek help for your addiction is not easy. Our alcohol rehab and drug addiction programs will help you towards recovery.As such, we ensure that our patients are well informed, understand the steps and are ready to start their healing journey.Our Medical, Therapeutic and Program staff have world-class programs designed to provide a clear path to recovery. Each client’s medical history and situation is unique as are the treatment programs. Our number one priority is to ensure your well being. This means proper assessment when you arrive and immediate placement into medical care. Our Medical team and physicians will then supervise the client during the detox withdrawal process.Once the client is medically cleared from detoxification they are then transferred to their room. Each client is examined and assessed by our Physician. A detailed treatment plan is then designed for each patient based on specific substance abuse.From there our team of Therapeutic and Programming professionals take over to implement your recovery program:
