Alcohol Rehab in Nova Scotia.
Treatment plans that address alcohol dependence issues
Beyond being just an alcohol rehab and treatment facility, we have created a sanctuary of healing that benefits both our residents and those who care about them affected by alcohol use disorder. Our unwavering commitment at Searidge is to support and inspire you on your journey to the successful destination you envision. We are located in the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia, a place that is well known as one of the most picturesque and scenic areas in all of Canada. We overlook the Annapolis Basin. We choose this location because this area inspires hope in renewal and growth alongside nature and the majesty of the ocean.
ALCOHOL REHAB: SMALLER FACILITY, GREATER QUALITY
Sometimes smaller IS better.
We all desire our children to experience smaller class sizes so they receive the necessary attention for growth. This same principle applies to our approach at Searidge rehab. By keeping a maximum of 12 residents within our facility at a time, we can provide personalized care crucial for successful recovery as part of the Searidge Alcohol Rehab program. Our intimate environment allows clinical and support staff members to genuinely know each resident and develop highly customized treatment plans accordingly. Small group therapy sessions foster a sense of inclusiveness and create an atmosphere more conducive to healing than larger institutional sessions featuring a solitary speaker addressing an audience. Our facility’s compact size also grants us the flexibility that larger institutions simply cannot provide. We strive to accommodate your unique needs, ensuring you feel comfortable while working towards sobriety in the most gratifying way possible.
ALCOHOL DETOX: THE FIRST STEP
After your arrival at Searidge Alcohol Rehab, the first major step in the journey to sobriety is detox.
Upon arriving at Searidge Alcohol Rehab, detoxification is the initial significant milestone on your path toward sobriety. Detox doesn’t mean “toxins” are being expelled from your body; rather it refers to your nervous system’s response to the absence of alcohol. The withdrawal process can trigger various severe symptoms such as disorientation, anxiety, diarrhea, high blood pressure, delusions, and changes in heart rhythm.
Untreated withdrawal symptoms may peak in the first few days of detoxification. Each individual’s experience of detox will be different and depends largely on the level of daily alcohol consumption. This can last from a few days to six with varying levels of severity. Our experienced medical team will work to help alleviate the associated risks and symptoms.
The Searidge clinical staff is on standby 24 hours a day in order to make sure that this process takes place with as much ease and comfort as possible. For more information on alcohol detox, please contact a member of our staff who can go over this process in greater detail at 1-866-777-9614.
OUR CORE ALCOHOL RECOVERY PROGRAM
At Searidge Alcohol Rehab, we understand the challenges of overcoming alcohol misuse and are committed to providing you with personalized guidance and support. Our recovery program offers valuable tools that empower you to create a fulfilling, sober life beyond our facility. Together, we’ll explore new interests, set healthy boundaries, and cultivate lasting motivation for a brighter future.
Embracing the transformative power of psychotherapy, our alcohol rehab program addresses dependency issues at their core. We employ a diverse range of techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), mindfulness therapy, and cognitive bias modification therapy to fully comprehend what drives alcohol addiction. Our compassionate clinical staff has extensive experience working with individuals who struggle with concurrent disorders like depression, anxiety, PTSD, or ADD, which affect over 65% of substance abusers.
In addition to our psychotherapeutic approaches, we incorporate an array of alternative therapies that complement and enhance clinical alcohol rehab treatments. At Searidge Alcohol Rehab, each day is a unique and engaging journey featuring mindfulness meditation, acupuncture, yoga, relaxation therapy, creative art therapy, Tai Chi, and First Nations Healing Rituals.
We firmly believe in the importance of individualized care and offer a broad selection of techniques for you to explore the most effective methods in supporting your sobriety journey. Together, we’ll provide you with the strength and resilience needed to embrace lifelong recovery.
EMBRACING JOY THROUGH RECREATIONAL THERAPY
We wholeheartedly believe in the power of recreational activities to uplift our residents’ spirits. Imagine yourself sea kayaking or embarking on enriching day trips to Halifax, Nova Scotia’s capital city. Our diverse recreational therapy programs are designed with love, aiming to nourish the mind, soul, and body while catering to various interests and abilities.
With the guidance of our recreation director and professional personal trainer, we offer a range of outdoor and indoor activities tailored to each season. Our sprawling grounds and cozy heated swimming pool provide the perfect setting for you to embrace nature in all seasons. Additionally, our crafting workshops, computer skills classes, and many other opportunities invite you to rediscover passions that may have faded due to alcohol use disorder.
NOURISHING YOUR BODY AND MIND THROUGH NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
Here at our alcohol rehab center, we genuinely understand that nutrition and a balanced diet play vital roles in your healing journey. With a strong body and mind as essential cornerstones for successful recovery, we place great emphasis on providing an exceptional and personalized nutritional program.
Our compassionate dietician, Professor Louise Thibault from McGill University, thoughtfully designs meal plans that replenish and reenergize your healing body. Staying informed about the latest advancements in orthomolecular medicine, she also recommends specific dietary regimens to help curb cravings and restore your overall well-being.
ALCOHOL REHAB FACILITY: A QUIET PLACE TO REFLECT
Recovery is a deeply personal journey that can be demanding on your mind, body, and spirit. Because of this, having a sanctuary to call your own is essential. One crucial aspect of alcohol addiction recovery is restoring a healthy sleep cycle, as sleep deprivation is often a side effect of the healing process. At Searidge Alcohol Rehab, we prioritize your comfort and well-being by providing each individual with their own private room and bathroom. This personal space allows you to recharge after exercising, reflect after therapy, or simply take a nap. While we embrace the importance of group therapy sessions, we also respect your need for privacy during this critical time.
Our residential recovery program is designed to give you the time and focus necessary to center yourself and heal. By taking a break from your daily routines and immersing yourself in the supportive environment at Searidge Alcohol Rehab, you’ll gain valuable tools and strength for lasting recovery. We offer 30, 60, or 90-day treatment plans to ensure that you feel prepared for a lifetime of sobriety.
No matter how long you stay with us, our dedicated staff will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that caters to your needs. Once your time at Searidge comes to an end, our comprehensive aftercare program will continue to support you on your journey toward lasting sobriety.
AFTERCARE THAT HONORS YOUR TIME AND ENERGY
After successfully completing our residential alcohol treatment program at Searidge Alcohol Rehab, you will have a variety of tools at your disposal to help you move forward. Still, it’s important to minimize the likelihood of falling back into old patterns. Our aftercare program provides you with the support and confidence needed to avoid relapse while refreshing and strengthening the skills you gained during your time at Searidge Alcohol Rehab.
We understand that your time and energy are precious. You want to reconnect with friends and family, attend to your responsibilities, and prove that you are much more than your alcohol use disorder. Maintaining connections within the recovery community is essential, but it should not consume your entire life. That’s why our aftercare program offers diverse options tailored to suit your individual daily commitments and requirements.
To make your therapy sessions more accessible, we offer Zoom sessions instead of requiring in-person meetings. Each group therapy session includes fellow alumni – some of whom you may recognize. With familiar faces and shared experiences, these group sessions become highly effective and efficient. Since we are already familiar with each participant’s unique challenges, we are able to continue building upon the progress made during your stay at Searidge.
If you prefer a more personal touch, one-on-one counseling is also available through phone calls.
Our private online Aftercare community offers you support from the comfort of your own home. As a graduate of our alcohol recovery program, you can also take part in refresher weekend retreats. Additionally, our affiliation with the Smart Recovery community gives us access to an Aftercare program with virtual meetings throughout Canada, England, USA, and Australia.
We work closely with each resident as they prepare to leave our program, ensuring they have a plan tailored to their specific routines and needs. No matter how much time you have to invest in our aftercare, we have a solution that will meet your needs.
