Addiction Therapy Program

Marijuana Alcohol Cigarettes Drugs Phone and Gambling Images - Addiction Therapy Program by The Therapy Centre in Toronto, Oakville and Hamilton

Treatment for addictive behaviours can come in many forms. At the Therapy Centre, we strive to provide treatment services for youth and adults that are trauma-informed, and foster a sense of safety and inclusion. We recognize that there are many factors leading to the development and maintenance of substance and behavioural addictions and offer a highly personalized approach to helping people reach their goals.

Our approach integrates a variety of therapeutic modalities, tailored to meet the needs of each client: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), principles of Motivational Interviewing, and elements of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).  Our addiction services are based on a harm reductionist approach. We recognize the impact that addictions have on all aspects of living, including family and loved ones; treatment can help people in strengthening their support networks in order to enhance recovery.  We emphasize collaborative-care, involving others when appropriate (family, friends) and consulting with other healthcare providers as needed to optimize treatment and facilitate healthy functioning.

We offer treatment for Concurrent Disorders, Substance Addictions including alcohol, tobacco, prescription medications, and other drug use, as well as Behavioural Addictions, such as gaming, gambling, internet, pornography, and shopping.
