At Helix Healthcare Group, we look beyond the addiction. Although destructive habits may first bring someone into treatment, it is rarely the primary issue. For this reason, it is extremely difficult to stop the cycle of addiction through willpower or sheer determination alone. In fact, that very thinking can perpetuate a sense of failure.
As Dr. Gabor Maté once said, we should ask “not why the addiction, but why the pain?”. That’s why we ask the right questions. We help you to understand the driving forces behind your addictive behaviours, actions and habits. By working through held trauma, emotional wounds, and physical imbalances, we help you transition into recovery and achieve a better quality of life. Through leading-edge therapies, integrative medicine and mind-body techniques, we create change from within.
As soon as you enter our addiction treatment centre in Toronto, you will know that you have taken the step towards lasting recovery. The many benefits of our program include:
Out-patient care offers many advantages over residential treatment. When a client participates in a program and resides overnight at the same facility, they can experience a ‘safety bubble’. For many, this affects their ability to deal with their addiction in the context of their everyday lives. The threat of maladjustment after leaving residential treatment may seriously hinder any prospects for long-term recovery and increase their changing of returning to old, destructive habits. Our addiction treatment centre is equipped to deal with clients on an out-patient basis – from as little as 1-2 hours a week for aftercare, up to 15 hours a week for more intensive support. Our process enables clients to gain valuable tools that they can use in their day-to-day activities as they begin this new chapter of their lives.
With flexible scheduling and customized programming, we will work around your needs so that you don’t have to take unnecessary time away from your work, home and family. Our programs also incorporate family and relational work to ensure that the individuals closest to you can both receive, and provide, the support that is needed to continue along the path to recovery.
Our programs excel in striking a healthy balance between safety, integrity, and integration. At our addiction treatment centre, we work closely with our clients to deepen their understanding of their addiction and then practice dealing with triggers in their daily lives. Clients then return to discuss specific challenges with the therapeutic team and address any problems that may arise. In doing so, we teach our clients to live a sober and satisfying life while engaged in their day-to-day activities and relationships.
Not only do our tailor-made solutions enable our clients to remain in the comfort of their home city while getting the treatment they need, our intensive outpatient program is significantly less expensive than traditional residential care. Beyond that, our clients benefit from more individual and less group therapy sessions than any other addiction treatment center in Canada.
