Addiction Rehab Thousand Islands – Rehabs in Canada
Are you struggling with addiction? A huge population in Canada is grappling with the problem of substance abuse, whether it is alcohol or drugs, and the figure is seemingly not going down. We are an exclusive treatment center that offers addiction treatment programs for drug and mental disorders and addictions. Our team offers two main services, one for the person addicted to drugs and alcohol and one for their loved ones who are affected by the impact of substance abuse in a daily basis.
Drug Rehab Programs
- Drug addiction often starts through recreational use, self-medication or from abuse of a prescription. The speed at which a person becomes addicted depends heavily on the type of drug, their health or genetic make-up. However, some common signs that occasional drug use is becoming a major issue includes:
- Feeling as though you need the drug daily just to function
- Deep cravings when you attempt to not use and/or experiencing withdrawal symptoms
- Failure to abstain when you try to
- Engaging in risky behaviors you wouldn’t normally do, especially behaviors to get more of the drug
- Failing to meet obligations at home, school or work due to use
- Increasing dosage to get the same effect
- More time spent focused on trying to get the substance while missing other events and obligations
Recognizing Drug Use in Loved Ones
One of the hardest things we can admit to ourselves is that a loved one has an addiction. All too often, people will try to ignore the issue or pretend it’s not as bad as it seems. Here are signs that you should look for to determine if a friend or loved one needs help:
- Money Issues: If a loved one attempts to borrow money without offering a reasonable explanation for why, especially if this person has never asked before, this could be a sign that their money is going for substance abuse.
- Theft: If you notice money or expensive items are missing from your home, your loved one could be using these to procure drugs. Similarly, if you notice that a loved one is selling off their own items this could indicate the same.
- Secretive Behavior: Attempts to keep others out of their home, room or personal space and being secretive about where they go and with whom can be signs of trying to hide use.
- Changing Behavior: Watch for withdrawal from normal social activities and extreme changes in behavior such as taking more risks, being lethargic or anything that doesn’t have other explanations.
- Declining Performance in Work or School: Missed days, poor quality work and general failure to keep up normal activity are all potential signs of addiction.
- Neglected Health and Appearance: Decline in physical health, lethargy and a chronically disheveled appearance are not sure signs of drug abuse, but if you see other issues, then addiction may be the issue.
- Marijuana: Marijuana, when abused, can lead to a host of issues including hallucinations and paranoia. We use a team of therapists and counselors well versed in the effects of chronic, over consumption of marijuana to help each client breakaway from dependence on this substance.
- Alcohol: With alcohol being one of the few legal and commonly used addictive substances, our program helps clients to abstain and cope with situations where others are partaking.
- Heroin: Our heroin addiction rehab program helps ease clients through difficult detox and withdrawal symptoms. 1000 Islands experts are experienced in the dangerous side effects of heroin withdrawal and provide medically-sound supervision throughout the process.
- Cocaine: Each of our cocaine addiction rehab clients goes through an assessment to create a personalized plan of care, supervised detoxification, and then an inclient rehabilitation program. The level of addiction and other factors help decide on how long this will take and what treatment methods will be used.
- Meth: With meth being one of the most abused drugs in Canada, the troubles related to this drug are numerous. At 1000 Islands we work with clients to repair damage that has been done to relationships, health and lives due to meth addiction. Professional help is especially important during the detox stage which can be overwhelming and often forces addicts back into using when they don’t have support.
- Opioids: A focus of opioid addiction is to find alternative ways for clients to achieve the calm they often get from this drug. Since these are often combined with other drugs such as heroin and cocaine, we tailor your program to address all addictions.
- Prescription Drugs: Prescription drug abuse is an insidious problem which increases over time for clients, often in a way that people don’t even see that they have a problem until the situation gets serious. We help to overcome this denial and treat all prescription drug addictions including sedatives, stimulants and prescription opioids and painkillers.
- Amphetamines: With amphetamines producing some of the most life-threatening effects, it is imperative to treat this addiction as quickly as possible. We provide supervised detox to make withdrawal easier and to monitor any health issues that may be exacerbated during the process.
- Inhalants: Inhalant addiction is often not given the same level of concern as other substance abuse because it simply doesn’t seem like it could be that However, prolonged use can result in a variety of physical and mental side-effects, including Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome which can occur even after only one use. It is most closely linked to butane, propane, and aerosol chemicals. At 1000 Islands, we treat inhalant addiction with the seriousness it deserves, helping to heal the lives of users and loved ones affected by it.
- Supervised detox process: performed at our offsite, partner facility with medical supervision for a safer, more beneficial process.
- Relapse prevention workshops: We give our clients coping methods to survive the triggers and struggles they will encounter in regular life.
- Group, individual, and family counseling: Getting to the root cause of the addiction and discussing how addiction has affected the client and loved ones, helps to stop the patterns from repeating.
- Contingency management education: This reward based, behavioral therapy conditions clients to seek out and receive fulfillment from the rewards they get from abstaining.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: This focused, therapist-led treatment helps to prevent relapse.
- Music and Art Therapy: We use the power of creativity to help ease the stress of rehab and to provide an outlet for emotions released during this process.
- Life management courses: 1000 Islands knows that addiction issues don’t cease to exist the second you walk out our doors. This is why we teach clients in focused courses designed to manage the triggers of life after rehab.
- Meditation and yoga therapy: Part of the initiative to treat the whole person, our meditation and yoga therapy helps clients to achieve calm and serenity without the use of addictive substances.
- Nutrition and physical fitness: Oftentimes, drug and alcohol abuse leads to a lifestyle that lacks nutritional balance and positive physical fitness. We help clients get these things into their lives to encourage feelings of well-being without the substances they relied on in the past.
- Recreational activities: We help clients take a break from the stresses of rehab by incorporating recreational activities perfect for enjoying the area. Surrounded by the St. Lawrence River, 1000 Islands offers a variety of scenic, and invigorating water activities like diving, fishing, swimming and boating. Golfing is also a popular option.
- Personal training: Our personalized approach to fitness and mental health supports the lessons and methods learned in our other resources.

- Self-Admission: When you know, you have a problem and are ready for help, 1000 Islands is here for you. We accept self-check-ins and help get you started on a better path immediately.
- Intervention: When addiction is obvious to everyone but the person struggling with it, an intervention is often the only way to get that individual to see the problem. We employ certified intervention specialists to aid in performing proven-effective methods for intervention. This helps the person see the problem and the need for seeking help.
- Detox: Once a client is admitted, detox is the next step. In this step, an addicted person must abstain from all substances until they are fully out of their system. We provide the medical expertise and supervision necessary to make this process as safe as possible. Note: our medically based detox program is performed at our offsite, partner facility. Transportation for clients is provided to and from this centre.
Customized Addiction Rehab: Our goal is to get and keep each client on the road to long term wellness and sobriety. To do this, we employ a variety of customizable options for our treatment programs to ensure each client is given the tools to succeed.
