Individuals seeking relief from drug and alcohol addiction in Barrie can now receive no-cost consultations. Call (705) 230-2740 for an appointment at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

A Barrie alcohol and drug rehab center is introducing a program geared toward helping adults and adolescents stop their ketamine addiction through services available at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Data released from the National Anti-Drug Strategy in Canada reveals ketamine is "odourless and tasteless, dissolves easily in liquid; drowsy effects have been used to prevent victims from resisting sexual assault. In high amounts, ketamine prevents the central nervous system from working and can lead to death. Short-term effects include loss of consciousness and memory, hallucinations, disassociation, 'out-of-body' experiences, inability to speak or move, fever, nose bleeds, nausea and more. Wear-off effects include anxiety, amnesia, and flashbacks."

Drug rehabilitation at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers allows adults and adolescents a chance to clean out their bodies and minds of ketamine. Part of this process is detoxification, cleansing out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances.

Once this process takes place, then counseling and therapeutic methods can enter into play. More times than not, there are real-life issues that a person has used drugs to hide, repress or deny within themselves. Some issues might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse. Drug rehab allows clients time to discern and figure out what is their truth around these situations.

Counselors and therapists with many years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment and addiction can help make the transition from addiction to recovery easier. These drug rehab staff members can rely on their personal and professional experiences with addiction to offer compassion and support to recovering individuals working to overcome their addictions.

Staff and clients are able to exchange stories of shared experiences, which will let recovering individuals know they are not alone in their journey. The relationships formed between recovering individuals and staff members provide a strong support network that offers strength and guidance during the recovery journey, throughout the transition to life outside of treatment and as recovering individuals adjust to sobriety.

Entering and going through drug rehab can become a life-changing journey for any person serious about kicking their habit.
