Ottawa: Big City Problems

Drug rehab resource for Ottawa

While famous for it’s pristine image as the nation’s capital, Ottawa certainly has it’s issues. Ottawa has it’s share of drug and alcohol problems as well as risky substance abuse.

Not immune to the addiction trends sweeping the world, they are sometimes eclipsed by Ottawa’s famous persona. Addiction issues tend to be similar wherever they are, requiring direct treatment to avoid further risk and danger.

A study in 2009 revealed that drugs and alcohol were making considerable headway in Ottawa schools. Approximately half of all students who currently use alcohol had their first drink before grade 7. Ottawa high school students primarily use cannabis; yet other drugs are making their way into school hallways, including hallucinogens (inhalants, LSD, PCP, or ecstasy), methamphetamines, cocaine, glues, crack cocaine, heroin, ice, and the non-medicinal use of stimulants, barbiturates, and tranquilizers.

In August of 2014, a concerned group demonstrated placing 32 pairs of shoes on a sidewalk, claiming 32 people had died needlessly of drug overdoses that year alone.

Their point? That the needless suffering and death due to substance abuse and addiction is avoidable. From what many addiction specialists see, this is absolutely the case. Something can be done about addiction. Whether it's a drug rehab our counselling addiction usually doesn’t go away on its own. Whether it’s helping yourself or a loved one, if you’re in crisis in Ottawa, the time to act may be now.

Ms. Lisa A Zimmerman - Counselor , MHS, BA, CCC (view profile)

Most people will struggle with emotional issues, difficult relationships, self esteem, loss or a variety of other stressors at some point in their lives. Learning skills to deal with these effectively can make a huge difference to how much enjoyment and satisfaction you can get out of life. It is important to me to provide an opportunity for people to be able to explore their concerns safely and without judgement. I firmly believe that everyone has the capacity to improve their emotional health and sense of well being.

I have over 7 years experience in the addiction field and have worked with many people with substance abuse, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and trauma issues. I prefer evidence based treatments including mindfulness meditation and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I have also been trained in couples counselling.
