The evolution of addiction treatment is here
Premier private care for men
At CHRC, we aren't satisfied with the status quo. We don't rely on outdated treatment philosophies. Our holistic model utilizes the latest in scientific research and evidence-based therapies. The process of healing requires time, skilled therapists and clinicians, and support from the right people in the right environment. Surroundings do matter.
Canadian Health Recovery Centre is a private care facility designed exclusively for men with substance abuse problems, process addictions and concurrent mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression and emotional trauma. CHRC is the only residential addiction treatment centre in Canada offering a comprehensive treatment program that includes orthomolecular therapy and biochemical re-balancing.
For many, abstinence alone is not enough - and without effective treatment, the cycle of addiction will persist as individuals will continue to self-medicate in their desperate need for relief from anxiety, depression, cravings, irritability, fatigue and irrational thinking. At CHRC, we focus on the underlying issues and root causes that drive addiction including the neurological and biochemical imbalances that counselling alone cannot heal.
Our multi-disciplinary team is an integral part of what makes us unique. CHRC offers an integrated treatment approach that ensures our guests receive the most effective evidence-based interventions combined with holistic and experiential therapies to support their full recovery. By combining the latest in neuroscience and psychotherapeutic approaches with a dedicated group of health care professionals, we provide our guests with the most qualified, competent and comfortable level of care available.
Abuse of alcohol or drugs typically results in the depletion of important nutrients, which over time, interferes with normal brain function. Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances are common even in recovery, causing a lifetime of cravings, poor health and reduced life expectancy. We utilize laboratory data to provide a personalized orthomolecular protocol for each client to address his unique health concerns, biochemical imbalances, nutritional deficiencies and neurological conditions that underlie addictive behaviour. The result is a marked improvement in overall health, including areas of mood and mental health, impulse control, processing and memory.
Biochemical repair and restoration help to re-balance body and brain chemistry, providing a key component to lasting recovery that goes hand-in-hand with the psychological, emotional and spiritual healing supported by our intensive counselling program.
Canadian Health Recovery Centre is a male-only treatment centre. Clinical data demonstrates that the separation of men and women during treatment can substantially improve outcomes. Gender-specific treatment supports a relaxed atmosphere without distraction, where men are able to be more emotionally authentic and focus on core issues such as drug and alcohol dependency, shame and guilt, co-dependency, self-esteem, trauma and relationship resolution. Every aspect of our treatment model is designed to improve outcomes, and for this reason, we are not co-ed.
"The Canadian Health Recovery Centre saved my life. When I came to find out information about the program, I was greeted with such optimism, a decision to change was made instantly. 5 weeks seemed like so much time but by day 2 I felt such a strong presence of life. The comfortable atmosphere, top notch food, and amazing staff made it feel like home."
J., CHRC Alumnus
"CHRC changed my perspective on life. The staff has shown me that my drug addiction was not the problem, but simply a symptom. The focus was on the underlying pain which caused me to use drugs and alcohol as a coping strategy. They helped implement assertive communication skills into my life, as well as mindfulness techniques that help me to regulate my emotions."
K., CHRC Alumnus
"The transformation that took place in my brother’s life during his 6-week stay at the CHRC was beyond our imagination. Seeing my brother so happy and positive is priceless. He told me that he tried so many times to abstain from substance abuse but never was he given the tools, education, understanding and clarification that he received at the centre. Now, he is truly empowered and motivated."
K., Sister of CHRC Alumnus
"You not only gave our son the tools to work with to continue moving forward himself – with the family program you gave us the tools to help let go of the past. He has dreams and plans once again. The transformation in “J” physically, mentally and emotionally is amazing and the relationship now within our family is one that we thought we would never get back."
Alumnus family letter, January 2017
We stand behind our commitment to healing and lasting recovery. We provide our clients with a guarantee to match their commitment to recovery and accountability. For those who complete a minimum six weeks of treatment and maintain their aftercare plan, we will bring them back to primary care for up to two weeks at our cost, if they need a tune-up or refresher – or if they relapse before one year of recovery. You aren’t in this alone. We are here for you.
The benefits of regaining control of your life are immeasurable. Investing in the right treatment is an investment for life.
At Canadian Health Recovery Centre, we treat all forms of alcohol and chemical dependency including process addictions and concurrent mental health issues such as anxiety, depression a and emotional trauma.
