Signs of alcohol addiction and problem drinking

Do you struggle with:

  • Finding reasons or making excuses for drinking, including to relax, deal with stress or feel “normal”?
  • Choosing drinking alcohol over other responsibilities and obligations such as work, family and friends?
  • Physical dependence and increased tolerance to alcohol – when you need more and more alcohol to feel the desired effect?
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you don’t drink – sleeplessness, tremors, nausea and seizures within a few hours of your last drink?

If you are experiencing any of the signs of problem drinking or alcohol addiction, call us for help. Your road to recovery starts here.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health says “most alcohol-related illnesses, social problems, accidents and deaths are caused by ‘problem drinking’”.

Problem drinking means alcohol use is causing problems in your life, and you need help.

We’ve helped more than 50,000 people recover from substance addictions and can help you too.

Alcohol addiction treatment – Our approach

Our comprehensive, person-centred Toronto region addiction treatment programs take place in safe, serene and caring environments in beautifully resorted heritage homes. As a not-for-profit addiction treatment centre, we are in a unique position to offer publicly funded treatment at no cost to residents of Ontario. We also offer as well as affordable competitive pricing for our leading fee-for-service programs.

Our abstinence-based model integrates 12-step facilitation with other best practices in clinical and medical approaches, which are proven to make a difference in long-term sobriety.

Our intensive inpatient alcohol abuse treatment program (28–35 day stays) provides around-the-clock counselling and support from our team of registered psychotherapists and certified drug and alcohol addiction specialists, all of whom have lived experience of addiction and long-term recovery.

At Renascent we treat the whole person, because alcohol addiction affects you on every level. Your care will be based on an alcohol rehab program tailored to meet your unique needs.

With abstinence-based treatment, even those with the most serious of addictions can find renewed health and healing, and a truly transformative experience.
