Searidge Alcohol Rehab

Searidge Foundation for Alcohol Rehab & Addiction Treatment

Searidge Foundation Alcohol Rehab is located in the beautiful Annapolis Royal area of Nova Scotia, home of the freshest produce throughout Nova Scotia, famous for its annual giant pumpkin contest, rolling green valleys, and picturesque Autumn landscapes, where the leaves change to all the hues of Fall that you can imagine. Searidge Alcohol Rehab is a scenic and comfortable drive from North Sydney, Cape Breton, if you decided to take the ferry from Newfoundland. If you decide it is easier for you to fly into Halifax International Airport, that would be no problem at all, our driver is available to pick you up at any location in Nova Scotia and from there bring you to Searidge Alcohol Rehab centre. For us at Searidge, an important part to the start of your journey to sobriety is to stay as stress-free as possible. In our effort to achieve this, we strive to take the worry of arranging your drive to Searidge Foundation out of your hands. We want our clients to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible when they arrive at Searidge.

Searidge Foundation exemplifies the benefits of receiving alcohol rehab treatment outside of your hometown, or in this case, your home province of Newfoundland. By removing yourself from the toxic environment where you engage in your perpetual habits, the success and stability of your sobriety exponentially increases. As an alternative, Searidge Foundation offers people from Newfoundland the opportunity to escape their life of addiction, by providing a safe space, close enough to drive to, but far enough away to turn a new leaf without constant reminders of the past which may pose a risk to recovery.

In addition, the distance between Newfoundland and Searidge Alcohol Rehab allows for a degree of privacy not attainable by remaining on the “rock,” as many locals refer to their home province. Searidge Foundation has provided many residents across the maritimes with the support and treatment necessary to overcome addiction and sustain their sobriety. Upon their return home to Newfoundland, following alcohol addiction treatment at Searidge Foundation, there is a comprehensive aftercare program. Patients are able to take advantage of the aftercare program immediately following graduation, to further help manage and maintain their sobriety.

SMART Recovery Meetings at Searidge Foundation for Alcohol Rehab

SMART Recovery, Alcohol, Alcohol Addiction, Treatment, Sober Living, Rehab, Recovery, Therapy

“SMART Recovery is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying. SMART Recovery is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an “alcoholic”, an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that’s fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. When you succeed at following our approach, you may graduate from the program, or you may stay around to help others.

Searidge Alcohol Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to the residents of Newfoundland to help ensure their sobriety is sustained. SMART recovery group meetings have proven to be incredibly beneficial to our Searidge alumni , one-on-one counseling, and group therapy are others that make up the comprehensive aftercare program offered in Nova Scotia. Over the phone and especially in-person meetings offer Newfoundland residents the tools and support they require to remain alcohol free and maintain a life of sobriety in recovery.

A huge benefit of the SMART recovery program that Searidge Alcohol Rehab offers is how we actively stay in touch with our clients. We are committed to our alumni at Searidge and provide them with Aftercare well past their graduation. We make sure to construct a plan that will work with their specific needs and current responsibilities as well as taking into consideration any distance that may need to be travelled in order to take advantage of our Aftercare program. We would take care of getting you to and from Searidge Alcohol Rehab.
