Residential addiction treatment at a rehab centre such as ours, can range in length anywhere from four weeks to several months. The length of stay depends on the severity of the addiction for alcohol abuse or other substance abuse.
There is no waiting list at iRecover, so within hours of travelling from Edmonton or Calgary Alberta, people can start their addiction recovery very the same day. Our residential addiction treatment services are typically short term, however they have the long term benefits of keeping people clean, sober and living with healthy habits.
Participants and loved ones can be assured that our highly educated and trained staff provide a compassionate atmosphere of trust, honesty and support. As many of our own staff have first-hand experience overcoming their own addictions, this enables them to relate individually or in a group setting. “Lived experience” is term that is often heard which ads a different dynamic to lessons both inside and outside of the classroom.
While receiving treatment at our Alberta facility, participants can also have their mental health issues addressed by Dr. Avininder Aulakh (MD, FRCPC, DABAM). Dr. Aulakh is duly qualified as a psychiatrist and addiction specialist and we are proud to have him as part of our team in the delivery of our high quality treatment.
iRecover utilizes tablet computers to assist in the delivery of addiction treatment services. Participants do get to take the tablet home with them after graduation, enabling them to continue to receive support during their lifelong recovery. During treatment and after graduation from our program, many participants also attend support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) benefits them with additional peer support.
When we hear from our alumni about how they have stayed sober after addiction rehab, we know that together our team has done an excellent job. We work to change addictive behaviours, change lives and help to rebuild families that have once been affected by substance abuse issues.
