Referring Medical Professionals

Many health care professionals recognize the overwhelming need for supportive programs in Canada to address drug and alcohol addiction. Referral to a treatment center is a critical component of your patient’s treatment process. It involves establishing a working relationship with a treatment center that will help with your patients transition into a program, offer full assessments and provide a comprehensive treatment plan that supports solution based recovery.

In today’s society, individuals are looking beyond traditional treatment programs for alternative ways of dealing with their addiction. Not everyone wants traditional treatment or is able to follow the same recovery plan. They want choices.

Together, individuals and their primary care givers and/or counsellors are seeking alternatives and using complimentary modalities to attain overall wellness.

At Habitude™, we understand the process is not always an easy one – some health practitioners face many  challenges,  including:

  • Limited programs that offer individual care
  • Long waiting periods
  • Finding a program that offers supportive aftercare options

The Habitude Addiction Program harbours an environment that offers privacy and personal attention in a small group format. Clients will benefit from our Bio-Psycho-Social programming, including individual counselling as well as many other complementary services.

The Habitude™ Addiction Program is Medically supervised by a Licensed Medical Doctor and Naturopathic Doctor to ensure best practice. The Habitude™ medical team supports the detoxification process from a physiological perspective, focusing on Phase II detoxification in conjugation with well-researched nutritional biochemistry. Clients will go through different stages while in treatment which consist of Biological & Physical Stage, Psychological and Emotional Stage, Sociological Stage and finally the Transition stage.

In addition to supporting our clients, we also have a family component of the program offering guidance and support for the family.
