Searidge Alcohol Rehab

Searidge Rehab Foundation for Alcohol Addiction, Treatment & Recovery in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Alcoholism is a disease that affects so many citizens of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Whether it’s an indirect or direct connection to the individual addicted to alcohol, one thing they all have in common is the feeling of confusion and sometimes helplessness from watching a loved one fall deeper into the depths of alcoholism. Searidge Alcohol Rehab is here to assist those who want to break the cycle of alcohol addiction and take the steps needed to living a healthy and sober lifestyle. Also known as Searidge Foundation, we are located in the quiet and rural area of south-western Nova Scotia. Searidge is only a 2 hour scenic drive from Halifax, and our supportive team makes the whole event of travelling completely effortless. We know that transitioning from a life of addiction, to a life of sobriety, can be overwhelming at first. That is one of the main reasons we have a driver that will pick you up from any location in Halifax, even your front door! They will then drive you to Searidge Alcohol Rehab where proper treatment and the first steps to your sobriety are waiting inside. Distancing yourself from your hometown is extremely beneficial to your recovery. Being far away from distractions and the familiar way of life yields the best results. The Alcohol Rehab is considered by its alumni and staff as a safe and comfortable environment, which is crucial when going through such a turbulent time in your life. Searidge has successfully treated many residents of Halifax over the years, and we are proud to offer our clients full access to our aftercare program, which provides them with the proper tools and resources to maintain their sobriety when they return home.

SMART Recovery Meetings for Alcohol Addiction in Halifax, Nova Scotia

“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 Drug Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to the residents of Halifax 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 Halifax residents the tools and support they require to remain drug free.

A huge benefit of the SMART recovery program that Searidge Drug 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.

Searidge Drug Rehab Aftercare Program offers alumni unlimited access to private NNG forums for alumni to stay in touch with each other, they can receive inspirational Twitter messages if they would like, you would have the option to participate in refresher weekends at Searidge as well. There are also group or individual therapy sessions over the phone with staff from Searidge. And of course, virtual or in-person SMART Recovery meetings
