A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT
The Cedars at Cobble Hill campus is a community of support built on holistic values that nurture the mind, body and spirit. The beauty of the natural surroundings of British Columbia’s spectacular West Coast provide a tranquil setting for you to focus on what’s most important.
Specializing in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, we also provide treatment for other process addictions including eating disorders and gambling. Our programs are built on innovative treatment, patient-driven care and evidence-based practices. Wherever you are in the recovery process, we’ll meet you there in a warm and safe environment that will help facilitate success in recovery.
Addictions are as complex and unique as the people and families they affect. As such, a recovery care plan must be properly individualized to address those complex and unique needs in order to be successful. Cedars at Cobble Hill’s residential substance abuse treatment program is built with that knowledge at the core, offering individualized alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs and recovery support services.
All programs are fully individualized based on the clinical and medical needs of each patient. After a thorough initial assessment, our professional staff will continue to monitor the treatment plan, making adjustments when needed to establish a dynamic framework for long-term recovery.
ADDICTION TREATMENT OPTIONS
A highly addictive drug, alcohol is a depressant and is second only to tobacco as the substance that causes the most harm to Canadians. The complexities of alcoholism are vast, with many different causes and effects. At Cedars, our alcohol addiction program considers a variety of biopsychosocial factors to ensure we provide the best platform for success.
Overcoming drug addiction can be overwhelming. But a robust framework of education, counselling and support, long-term recovery is possible. Our drug addiction treatment program offers just that, and more including medically monitored detox and the critical foundation of the 12-Step recovery principles to ensure that there are no barriers to a successful outcome.
Process addictions are addictions to a wide-variety of behavioural activities or actions like gambling, sex, Internet, working or eating disorders. Although they don’t involve substances like in alcohol or drug addiction, they can be just as debilitating and difficult to overcome. Regardless of what type of challenges each patient faces with their process addiction, our individualized treatment options will facilitate success in recovery.
