Drug Detox in the Saskatchewan

Detox is the first step that an addict will go through when looking to access a treatment program. Here is some additional information on detoxification:

  • This is the process of ridding the body of toxins and adjusting to the lack of alcohol and drugs.
  • Detox does not constitute complete treatment, and it should not be considered the only step taken in a person’s recovery.
  • Detoxification is needed to stabilize the person before treatment.
  • When going through withdrawal, it is crucial to be in a supervised environment, as some of the symptoms include vomiting, tremors, sweating, stomach cramps, mood changes, and difficulty sleeping.

Outpatient and Inpatient Treatment in Saskatchewan

After detoxification is complete, the next step involves attending residential or outpatient treatment. Here are some benefits of these treatment modules:

  • One of the main benefits of going to a treatment facility is its structure, which you can get at inpatient treatment.
  • Outpatient treatment can also be a successful form of treatment, and it can accommodate those who cannot afford to put their life on pause for an extended period to attend a rehab program.

Saskatchewan’s residential and outpatient treatment centers provide the necessary resources to help addicts overcome their alcohol & drug addiction.

Saskatchewan Substance Use Statistics and Information

According to the Canadian Substance Use Costs and Harms (CSUCH):

  • Substance use cost over $1.6 billion to the Saskatchewan province in 2017.
  • Opioids on their own cost $192 million for the same year.
  • More specifically, opioids cost $134 million in lost productivity, 29$ million to the criminal justice system, and $16 million to the healthcare system.

The province of Saskatchewan is aware of the impact that the opioid epidemic has been having on its community. On their website, there is a page dedicated to providing information on opioids, how to prevent overdoses, and the treatment resources available to their residents.

Ask a professional

There are different approaches to take when looking for drug rehab in Saskatchewan. Suppose you or your loved one are looking for private drug rehab; a simple internet search will point you in the right direction. Government-funded drug rehab is found through the Saskatchewan mental health and addiction support services.

Through the Saskatchewan mental health and addiction support services, you or your loved one can access outpatient services, such as assessments, intensive one-on-one and group counseling, education, and support. Other options include detox services, inpatient services, and long-term residential services.

Ideally, if you or your loved one lives in Regina or Saskatchewan, it would be better to attend drug rehab at another location. Being in an unfamiliar environment does promote better success at treatment. It makes transitioning to aftercare or some form of sober living easier. There are fewer temptations when you are in an unfamiliar environment.

The cost of drug rehab varies in the province. Drug rehab centers provided by the province are covered by provincial healthcare. Still, there could be some out-of-pocket costs, such as room and board fees. Private drug rehab costs vary. Generally, outpatient drug rehab is the least expensive, whereas residential drug rehab is the most expensive. Private drug rehab can cost between $5,000 and $30,000.

Yes, there are excellent substance use treatment options in Alberta. It is not uncommon for families or addicts to travel to Alberta when there are no treatment options in Saskatchewan. In fact, it is better to travel further away from the environment you were using drugs. Being in a different place contributes to better success and long-term recovery.
