Substance Use Disorders
Addiction. Abuse. Dependence. These are the terms formerly used for what is now referred to as substance use disorders. Addiction, abuse and dependence are judgemental terms, making it hard for anyone to look for help and for people to support one another.Our Programs
We must all recognize that a substance use disorder is a medical condition; it is a disease that affects a person’s brain, changing their behaviour and mood in a way that makes them unable to control their use of legal or illegal drugs, or legal or illegal behaviours. Substance use disorders include alcohol, opioids, gambling and shopping.
At Recovery Care, we are a harm reduction clinic focused on substance use disorders for legal or illegal drugs, including opioids, narcotics and alcohol.
Substance use disorders are far reaching and affects everyone. Regardless of how you got here, we believe everyone matters; we believe everyone deserves a chance at recovery.
At Recovery Care, we understand that everyone is unique. We believe in treating the whole person and are committed to supporting you with respect and dignity.
Our programs are focused on the medical component of treating the substance use disorder. In addition, we offer mental health programs which are essential to every treatment plan. We are also focused on physical health and have implemented a 5 day per week hepatitis C program, which has a 95% cure rate.
We believe that if we can help take care of the physical health issues you may have, you can better focus on your treatment plan for substance use disorder.
