Addiction Affects Everyone

Addiction does not affect any one race, gender, age, sex or socioeconomic status. Addiction affects everyone; from teenagers to men and women in their 60s and 70s and older. Addiction can quickly grow into a health crisis for anyone, possibly yielding deadly outcomes.

Many become innocently addicted to pain medications prescribed for legitimate medical conditions, injuries, or surgery. Many other people become addicted to the sedative effects of prescription medication such as Valium or Lectopam. Each of these categories of medications are designed for short term use, but when the individual attempts to stop using them they may experience symptoms of withdrawal. Extended use to relieve the withdrawals, anxiety, or to manage pain can lead to addiction.

Many people begin using drugs such as cocaine and cannabis (marijuana) recreationally, finding that they become increasingly dependent on the drug needing more and more to attain a high. When they attempt to stop using these drugs individuals may experience anxiety, agitation, depression, and other symptoms.

Models of Care

New Horizons Rehabilitation Centers support both abstinence based and Harm Reduction models of recovery. For those struggling with opioid addiction, in addition to abstinence based approaches, New Horizons offers evidence based Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) pathway options. Twelve Step Programs, counseling, educational, and treatment groups are incorporated throughout treatment and offer residents an opportunity to reconnect with a recovery community and to establish healthy relationships.

The goal of residential treatment is to move from acute detoxification and stabilization to long term recovery in the community. To transition from intensive clinical management within a supervised treatment environment to self- management within a supportive recovery community over time.

New Horizons Rehabilitation Center recognizes the unique needs of Canada’s First Nations people and utilizes evidence based and strengths based programs in the treatment of indigenous clients, providing culturally sensitive treatment while developing strong links with First Nations communities.
