Another Road drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is a fully client centered. We are proud to offer an alternative rehabilitation treatment program that caters to the specific needs of each individual. Our principle focus is to create a supportive healing environment rather than rigidly maintaining established rules. A client-centred approach upholds our commitment to respect each persons’ treatment decisions and recovery plan.
At Another Road we understand that every individual presents unique challenges and requires a unique approach. We integrate several modalities of treatment to find the tools that work best for each client. We recognize that everyone is exceptional and that everyone requires comprehensive personal consideration. We strive to apply whatever approach works best for the specific client and their explicit issues. We offer an introduction to mediation, art therapy, reiki, and acupuncture, as they apply to addiction recovery. We incorporate various off-site resources such as 12 Step meetings and conferences, including visits to art galleries, theatres, and various sports and entertainment venues.
One reason why we can afford to offer the best prices in Canada is that our clients are responsible for the kitchen. We believe that meal planning and food preparation reflect a real-world therapeutic environment where clients are encouraged to be responsible for their own care and expected to contribute to the care of the group. We believe that establishing an appreciation of community is essential to recovery. We have found that the family atmosphere created by cooperating in the kitchen and sharing delicious, personally prepared food, is a tremendous motivator and encourages meaningful personal connections.
We are located in beautiful Caledon on a 20-acre property. Our quaint 10-bed facility offers daily in-house group and individual therapy sessions with experienced addiction counsellors and certified addiction specialists.
At Another Road, we understand the process of addiction and, more importantly, the process of recovery. We know the profound courage that it takes to make the first step, to admit that you’ve lost control of your life. The first step is the most important, and although it may not be the end of your addiction, it is the beginning of your recovery.
“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals….I am struck by how sharing our weakness and difficulties is more nourishing to others than sharing our qualities and successes.” Jean Vanier

What is an Addiction?
An addiction is an overwhelming persistent need and a compulsive dependence on a habit-forming substance or behavior
It is the state of being enslaved to a practice or routine, or to something that is physically and/or psychologically habit-forming to an extent that, if it stops, severe trauma will ensue. Along with substance addictions, such as drug abuse, alcoholism, and smoking, there are process addictions such as gambling, shopping, and sex addictions. A person can have multiple addictions. They can have a substance dependence and a process addiction, or an addiction to multiples substances. Poly drug use is the use of two more narcotics or addictive drugs.
Addictions are more common than you think
Poly drug addiction is more common than one would think. In most cases, one drug is a primary or base drug; others are added to achieve a different effect. Individuals with a multiple drug addiction add other drugs to their primary drug use to make the experience more enjoyable. They combine two or more psychoactive drugs to achieve a particular effect; to augment the high, or to compensate for, or alleviate any unpleasant side effects caused by the primary drug. Secondary drugs are also sometime used as a substitute when the drug is unavailable.
Habits and behaviours can also be addictive
Some individuals, in addition to their dependence on drugs and/or alcohol, also have a process addiction; an addicted to a behaviour or activity. Addiction is defined as the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming to the extent that its cessation causes severe trauma. Every person’s addiction is different, and so are the reasons why they became addicted or develop an unhealthy dependence in the first place. Naturally, the road to recovery will be the same for everyone. For this reason, Another Road Addiction Recovery Centre develops personalized programs for every client because every person is unique and so are their addictions.
An addiction is a disease
When someone has an addiction, they have a disease that can hurt the entire family. Often family, and close friends as well, are deeply affected when someone they love is struggling with addiction. Drug and alcohol abuse puts a great deal of stress on spouses, parents, siblings, grandparents and close friends. When a family member takes drugs or is an alcoholic, they can’t be counted on to do what they say they will. They may claim that they have their addiction under control or that they will stop using drugs and/or alcohol, but too often their good intentions fail. Sometimes those with addictions lie or steal to buy drugs. While intoxicated, they might do things that they would never normally do when sober. Their behaviour can alienate those around them. Their conduct while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause them to lose their job or even result in serious legal problems.
