Foundation Foundation For Substance Abuse In The Northwest Territories

The abuse of drugs is a phenomenon that is widespread across Canada, and no province has been spared the struggles of helping those who need treatment. The Northwest Territories, unfortunately very difficult to access at times, has suffered with the rest of the country but without the benefit of easy to find treatment options. This is problematic for those addicted to drugs who while in a desperate situation, would otherwise be able to receive treatment and beat their dependence on narcotics or other substances. Fortunately, there are options for those who reside in the wonderous Northwest Territories, and help is available to those looking to make a change. Foundation, a residential drug addiction treatment centre located a short drive from Ottawa, is more than capable to assist those coming to us from the north, and can provide all the necessary information to make the journey towards sober, healthy living more convenient. There are always questions when someone seeks treatment for drug abuse, and the friendly team at Sobriety Home is ready to answer them.

A mountainous region of the northwest territories is a symbol of power and strength that drug addicts can use to overcome their addiction during recovery

We have helped people from all across Canada end their addictions once and for all, using proven, science based treatment programs as well as providing our clients top notch creature comforts and things to keep busy with during their stay. It may be daunting to travel across Canada to attend treatment for an addiction to drugs, but the truth is many who travel to go through recovery benefit from the distance between rehab and home. Why is this? It’s simple, really. The space between a client and their community, favorite spots to party, friend who do drugs and the scrutiny of neighbours or coworkers provides a healthier foundation to begin one’s recovery. In addition to that benefit, Foundation offers private rooms and delicious healthy meals to all of our clients to help keep their spirits up while going through one of the most difficult times of their lives. We treat everyone as individuals, and tailor our treatment approach to them. While those addicted to drugs share plenty with each other, the best approach is still to treat every client based on their drug or drugs of choice, their lifestyle and their belief system. Dignity and compassion are paramount to success in rehab, and our team will always treat those under our care with the respect they deserve.

The highly trained, professional staff at Foundation have seen many different types of addiction, and are prepared for just about any case no matter how daunting it may seem. Our judgement-free, attentive team members will work together to ensure that a client’s stay with us is both comfortable and productive. Throughout a client’s stay, they will have access to a gym, personal trainer, massage therapy, holistic treatments, recreational activities, plenty of time outdoors, gardening, kayaking and so much more. In respect to treatment, a client can expect to go through an intake phase, counselling and be provided with aftercare services. At all times medical staff can be accessed by any client who is in need, and everything submitted to or spoken about with Foundation is completely confidential. Reducing stress, easing worry and anxiety, while providing next level drug addiction rehabilitation is the Foundation mission. Please feel free to reach out to us if you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction to drugs, we’re more than happy to help.
