Foundation Foundation For Substance Abuse Treatment in Alberta

The province of Alberta is known for greatness. The success of the province over the past few decades has been felt all across Canada and the world, and many of us Canadians have considered moving to Alberta to find a piece of the prosperity pie. Alberta is also one of the most beautiful provinces, with rolling fields, mountainous regions that have made many photographers very happy and pristine lakes as fresh as the days they were formed. Like so many other parts of our great country, however, Alberta has a substance abuse problem. Many individuals struggle and suffer every day because they don’t know how to make a change for the better. Drug addiction is problematic for many reasons, but a big one is that there are dozens of substances available to addicts, making the issue a very difficult one to treat. Foundation has experience treating a wide variety of addictions, and our years of experience doing so put us in a unique position to help those from Alberta seeking to end their addiction and return home to prosper.

A young woman sits in Banff National Park and is filled with the hope that she can end her drug addiction and attain sobriety.

Substance abuse is a complex, private and often humiliating matter. Addicts hide their behaviour from friends, family and anyone close to them for as long as possible, but sadly nearly everyone eventually succumbs entirely to their addiction and it is exposed to those closest to them. Reactions from friends and family vary, but it’s always a very emotional time with more questions than answers. Foundation can help answer many of the questions individuals affected and their family members may have, as well as addressing the concerns they may have. We are located a short drive from Ottawa, away from prying eyes and judgement. We’ve helped many Canadians, and always welcome those from Alberta.

Edmonton, Alberta stands as a beacon of hope and success for all those in Alberta, especially those struggling with substance abuse

No matter what type of addiction someone may be dealing with, it’s important to know that no two addiction stories are the same. There are innumerable types of narcotics, street drugs and party drugs out there that corrupt the lives of Albertans, and the relationship between them and the individual is the key to succeeding in treatment. Foundation offers a comprehensive, science based approach to recovery while also offering alternative treatments to those interested as well as a few amenities to make the stay of our clients less stressful. Drug addiction is not an easy problem to reverse, but with a cognitive and behavioral approach the professional and highly trained staff at Foundation have had countless successes. Our commitment to offering holistic and spirituality based treatments to supplement our various programs is what makes us so good at helping those under our care. Treating the individual, not just the illness is what makes all the difference. Exercise, yoga, massage therapy, holistic practices and plenty of outings are only a few of the things we do differently, and the fact that we offer private rooms to all our clients truly sets us apart. The privacy of our clients before, during and after treatment is a top priority and not a responsibility we take lightly. If you, or someone dear to you is ready to change their lives for the better, end their addiction to drugs and get their health and independence back, Foundation will be ready to help.
