Our Detox

Withdrawal Management


Toronto Withdrawal Management Center

The detox and withdrawal process can be a time of uncertainty and fear. At ART, our detox program is centered around a holistic approach that requires patience and thoughtfulness to ensure long term successful treatment. We understand that the decision to become sober can be uncomfortable as new emotions surface and physical withdrawal symptoms appear. Our team of nurses, counselors and psychotherapists are consistent in ensuring a safe, respectful, non-judgemental and accepting attitude.

Our intake process begins with healthcare providers performing a physical examination to acknowledge any pre-existing or contributing illnesses. We obtain a drug history and note any mental health concerns in order to identify information to help navigate the withdrawal process. Medications are prescribed based on individual needs, the duration and extent of substance abuse, and are dispensed if and when withdrawal symptoms are observable.

Not all clients require medical care, but most require a period of constant emotional and nutritional support. Our team makes sure to meet each of our clients needs, while providing a calm and safe environment. We check on our clients hourly, ensuring they are well hydrated and getting adequate rest. The presence of our staff provides clients with reassurance and maintains the client’s confidence in being successful with the detoxification process.

ART staff find the balance between continual supervision and promoting individual autonomy. After the first few days of acute withdrawal and adjustment to our community, clients are encouraged to attend group and individual therapy. Our nurses, psychotherapist and counselors help clients to identify alternative coping mechanisms to reduce client’s reliance on using substances and find comfort in sobriety. Individual relationships are built between our team and clients by maintaining confidentiality and acceptance.
