Addiction Rehab Toronto strives to treat addiction from a holistic perspective that encompasses biological, psychological and social components. Addiction takes many tolls on an individual’s life such as decreased physical health and the deterioration of healthy relationships. It is also important to understand how mental health plays a role in active addiction. The process of addiction can often operate in a cyclical manner, as it relates to mental health. A certain life experience can evoke emotions and cognitions that may produce a mental health illness, such as anxiety or depression. In order to cope with these feelings, the individual may turn to drugs or alcohol, which then can lead to engaging in risky behaviours or situations and continue the cycle of mental health deterioration. The clinical staff at Addiction Rehab Toronto focus on the underlying mental health concerns and how the client can best address their cognitive functioning. Our team of addiction therapy specialist, psychotherapist and clinical staff collaborate each day on how to meet and treat the unique mental health needs of every client. Techniques for coping with mental illness vary widely and can include strategies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and psychoeducation. Addiction Rehab Toronto looks at each client on an individual basis to best develop a personalized treatment plan.
