VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Canada Drug Rehab (CDR), a project of Sunshine Coast
"CDR's mission is at once both to compile resources and explain meanings," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "This new post focuses on explanation, helping the lay public understand the differences in philosophy and treatment methodology of diverse drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, SMART Recovery, LifeRing, and others. It's a 'must read' for anyone who is suffering from addiction and/or anyone who has a loved one who is suffering and needs help."
To view the article on "Addiction Recovery Group Meetings in Canada," visit https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/blog/general-category/addiction-recovery-group-meetings/. Another option is to use the website menu to browse by category and find meetings, such as Drug Rehab meetings in Vancouver, Alcohol Treatment meetings throughout British Columbia, and so on and so forth. Those who may be alumni of Sunshine Coast can also check out their page on sober living at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/alumni-programs/, which explains aftercare options. That page also deals with three predictors of potential relapse: interpersonal relatedness, intrinsic motivation, and self-definition. As no two situations are the same, interested persons and/or their loved ones are urged to reach out to either CDR or Sunshine Coast for more assistance.
RECOVERY MEETINGS IN CANADA COME FROM MANY PERSPECTIVES
Here is background on the release. Recovery from alcohol and/or drugs takes many forms, and many different program philosophies exist to assist Canadians. The new blog post deals with four kinds of meetings, some with a religious basis and some secular. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are very similar as they stem from the same 12 step methodology. SMART Recovery stands for "Self-Management and Recovery Training" and is a non-12 step program. LifeRing is another non-12 step program but it has a different emphasis to SMART Recovery.
Perhaps just as important, the CDR website has an impressive geographic index of available programs in Canada at both the city and province level. At the city level, for example, one can view drug rehab and alcohol programs in Vancouver at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/british-columbia/british-columbia-locate-your-health-authority/vancouver-coastal/. At the province level, for example, one can view rehab and treatment programs in British Columbia at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/british-columbia/. And at the top of each page, people can find and call the helpline at 866-462-6362.
