Why Renascent

EFFECTIVE TREATMENT WITH LASTING RESULTS

Seeking drug or alcohol treatment for yourself or a loved one can be one of the most difficult and important decisions of your life. In Canada, there are no regulations or overseeing governing bodies ensuring that private treatment centres, which are businesses first, are operating appropriately. As a not-for-profit, you can trust that Renascent puts people first and that every dollar goes back into delivering world-class treatment. Renascent is also fully accredited by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation, the highest standard for community-based health organizations. We are the only addiction treatment centre in Toronto with this accreditation.

Here are some of the reasons why Renascent is your best choice for effective treatment with lasting results:

ALMOST 50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, OVER 45,000 HELPED

Renascent has been a national leader in abstinence-based treatment since 1970. We’ve given tens of thousands of people the tools they need to get clean and sober and to stay that way – to live healthy, happy lives free from drugs or alcohol.

Renascent is one of the largest residential treatment providers in Ontario; we offer gender-specific treatment in one of our four centres in Toronto and Durham region, and we offer affordable and evidence-based treatment with proven outcomes.

OUR SUCCESS RATES

Because one drink, hit or pill can trigger a complete relapse, abstinence is crucial for lasting results. Over 71% of our clients who have completed our residential and continuing care rehab programs are clean and sober two years after treatment.*

EVIDENCE-BASED & EFFECTIVE DRUG AND ALCOHOL TREATMENT

As one of Canada’s largest abstinence-based drug and alcohol treatment providers, we offer evidence-based, trauma-informed care that addresses concurrent mental health issues. Our 12 step model of treatment is an evidence-based therapy that produces effective and lasting recovery from addiction. This foundation is augmented by a wide range of therapeutic modalities including cognitive behavioural techniques, reality therapy, person-centred therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness principles, and art therapy.

IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO TREATMENT

If you don’t act to defeat drug or alcohol addiction when the window of opportunity opens, it can close for good. We offer immediate access through continuous daily admissions. You won’t wait weeks for the next session to begin. Rapid assessment and admission (often within 24 hours) is possible at Renascent.

EXPERT COUNSELLORS WHO’VE BEEN THERE

Our compassionate and caring clinicians are fully certified professionals with extensive experience in treating drug and alcohol addiction, and they all have lived experience of addiction and recovery. They know what you’re going through, so you can feel safe and understood in sharing your own experience. You’ll find compassion, care and a deep understanding of the challenges and the joys you’ll meet on your own road to recovery. You can expect a full multidisciplinary care team including psychotherapists, certified addiction counsellors, a clinical psychologist, and a board certified addictions medicine doctor to help you every step of the way.

CONTINUING CARE AND SUPPORT

Continuing Care is an essential component of lasting recovery. At Renascent we offer a comprehensive 15-week Continuing Care program to help solidify the foundation you’ve built in residential treatment, and our alumni community will give you ongoing social, spiritual, and educational support throughout your healing journey.

HELP FOR FAMILIES

Addiction touches not only the addict but everyone around them, especially those who love them the most. Renascent’s family programs, designed by one of the world’s leading experts on family and addiction, Dr. Robert Ackerman, are specifically tailored to meet the distinct needs of children, parents, and other loved ones affected by addiction.

OUR CENTRES ARE HOMES

Some rehab centres resemble hospitals and spas. Our centres are homes, not institutions or five star resorts. They are warm, caring, safe spaces where true healing from addiction can begin. These are homes where men learn to be sons, fathers, husbands, brothers and friends and women learn to be daughters, mothers, sisters, aunts and friends.

We offer gender-specific centres and programs to address the unique recovery needs and concerns of men and women.

FULLY ACCREDITED BY THE CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ACCREDITATION

Renascent is proud to be fully accredited by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation, the highest standard for community-based health organizations. Accreditation is recognition of best and leading practices in every aspect of treatment and governance – a guarantee of the highest quality care. We are the only addiction treatment centre in Toronto with this accreditation.
