According to a recent survey, more than 85% of drug users relapse back into drugs use within a year of leaving rehab. Researchers estimate that more than 2/3 of individuals in recovery relapse within weeks to months of beginning addiction treatment. These drug relapse statistics are so discouraging because there is no solid plan put in place to remain sober after leaving rehabilitation centres successfully. Most users are enticed by the prospect of being outside the strict regime of rehab and in the outside world where the drugs are readily available.
Addiction Rehab Toronto is proud to be featured in a City News segment discussing the new class action lawsuit targeting over 40 opioid manufacturers and companies. This suit is alleging that companies were negligent in how they researched, developed, and marketed opioids starting in the 1990s.
Addiction Rehab Toronto incorporates multiple avenues of support into their programs. They provide one-on-one counselling sessions for clients to explore issues that may relate to their addiction.
Those struggling with addiction of some sort struggle to use willpower to refrain from drugs or alcohol. The addiction changes the individual’s brain – creating compulsions that are difficult to resist. Most family members and friends of addicts struggle to understand why the individual can’t simply stop using the drugs or alcohol, but addiction is a complex disease of the brain and body, and quitting takes more than strong will or good intentions.
