Medical Care, Medical Centres and Addiction Recovery Clinics

When it comes to the overall health of clients, physical and mental wellbeing go hand in hand.

When to Seek Medical Care

Substance abuse has detrimental effects on the body and the brain which is why the utmost attention and care is given to restoring and maintaining the biological health of patients.

Clients often enter the clinic needing medical care to aid their recovery process. Our consulting medical practitioners perform thorough assessments to identify and treat illnesses that patients may have developed from years of substance use or symptoms they are currently experiencing.

Clients should advise the nurse of any medical conditions they have upon entering the rehab. Recovery Direct’s holistic approach to health and recovery ensures that no detail is overlooked, mentally, physically and emotionally.

The factors that determine whether someone has an addiction to drugs can be difficult for even the user themselves. Signs of a potential drug problem are not always easy, and sometimes with tolerance changing effects over time, it may take you a while before you notice anything is wrong at all.

"The signs that my coworker was addicted to cocaine were hardly noticeable in the beginning- only when he started missing days without explanation did I start suspecting something wasn't right."

Mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety, may put people at greater risk for using drugs. There are many reasons why this increased risk in addiction is possible.

When does one seek medical detox from a substance?

What is detox?

Detox is the process by which all traces of alcohol and drugs are removed from your body so that you may start therapy. Addiction to substances such as alcohol or other drugs can lead people's bodies to become accustomed to having them in their system, leading many addicts into a detox phase before they begin any recovery efforts.

A thorough evaluation can provide a medical team the info they need to identify the substance use problems under a medical diagnosis.

Individual counselling for drug addictions has proven to be one of the most effective ways to combat addictions and for clients to sustain their lasting sobriety and meaningful personal growth. Many people think that substances are the core of the addiction problem. However, substances are very often a temporary solution or coping mechanism used by the person to cope with deeper issues that exist in their emotional wellbeing. These emotional layers form over time and may need to be addressed through more focused talk therapy or addiction counselling.
