Drug and alcohol abuse is being found in many different rural communities throughout the Maritimes, and IV drugs have been popping up more and more. Opiates have been becoming the drug of choice for many people, and opiate addiction can lead to serious health problems, and opiates are very difficult to come off of. In order to combat these problems, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers throughout the province along with residential long-term treatments, and traditional and medical detox programs assist families and addicts through difficult opiate addictions.

Private Drug Treatment Programs In Newfoundland

Private treatments for drug or alcohol addiction have some advantages that one should know before he or she starts looking for rehab centers. Private treatments usually don’t have waiting lists (or a very short compared to government-funded rehabs), which means that a person can get help right away. Unfortunately, Newfoundland doesn’t have any private treatments. But if a person really wants to attend private drug rehab, we can help you find a private treatment outside of Newfoundland. There is also an advantage to going away for treatment, since it takes the person out of the environment he was using or drinking while he is in treatment. This can limit the bad influences he could get.

Newfoundland OxyContin Abuse

The province of Newfoundland makes up 21% of all the transactions made at local pharmacies in all of Atlantic Canada for prescription painkillers just like OxyContin. This is a growing problem in the province and has led to a spike in people looking for painkiller treatment to handle the problem. Another growing problem among the native Inuit people living in Labrador is the growing problem among young people, mainly teenagers abusing inhalants in parts of Labrador. The Federal and Provincial governments of Canada have all put forward the resources to help handle this problem. These resources have been spent to help relocate certain communities, help build social programs, and provide addiction treatment resources. Newfoundland and Labrador are continuing to handle this problem and have also been facing the ongoing problem of alcohol abuse in the province. DUI charges in Newfoundland can be very severe, especially for multiple offenders. When prescription drugs start being a problem in someone’s life, help is really needed and that is why drug rehab centers are necessary so that help can be delivered swiftly and professionally. There need to be more and more drug rehab centers in order to treat Oxycontin and other drug addictions.

Ask a professional

There are accessible drug rehab programs in the province, yet the options are limited compared to other provinces. There are six treatment center options listed on the provincial health and community services website. Unfortunately, with smaller communities, the options are limited.

In many cases, traveling out of the province can be beneficial as it supports better treatment and recovery. However, the Department of Health and Community Services in Newfoundland has guidelines for the application process for out-of-province treatment. Before funding is approved, all treatment options in the province must be fully utilized. However, if you or your loved one choose private drug rehab, there are no limitations.

The cost of drug rehab varies in Newfoundland. Drug rehab programs provided by the province are covered by provincial health care, yet there are wait times and limited beds. Private drug rehab or drug detox in the province comes at a cost. Generally, the prices vary and can cost between $5,000 and $30,000.

There are opioid agonist treatment options in Newfoundland, such as medication-assisted treatment. Services include ongoing support and monitoring, health, safety, risk reduction, addiction treatment, and social and health services.

Yes, DoorWays is a single-session, walk-in counseling service, and community counselors support individuals with mental health or substance use concerns. If residential or outpatient drug rehab is unavailable, counseling remains the best option.
