When it comes to substance addiction, abstinence alone does not constitute a recovery. When the substance is removed, the individual must seek a new solution or coping mechanisms for the same problems. Without treatment, addiction can destroy mental and physical health, derail careers, damage personal relationships and cause constant misery. Make sure you know the facts about substance addiction before you choose to seek treatment for yourself or a loved one. Learn more.
Living with mental illness and/or addiction is not uncommon; According to the Canadian Association for Mental Health, one in five Canadians will have a mental health problem during his or her lifetime. And 40 to 60 per cent of people with a mental health problem will also have a substance use problem in their lifetime. At Aurora, we treat mental health disorders and their co-occurring addictive behaviours. Before you seek treatment for a mental health disorder, make sure you understand the condition. Learn more.
The word “addiction” refers to so much more than substances. Processes and behaviours can evoke the same sense of euphoria that drugs do, and can be just as addictive. Most importantly, their consequences can be just as detrimental to a person’s life, wellness and relationships. Learn more.
