Drug addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. Our drug rehab program serves Ontario and addresses the complex needs of the entire person and provides the tools you need for lasting healing and long-term recovery. 

The Effects of Drug Use

The misuse of drugs can harm your work, social, and family life, but also have severe consequences on your mental and physical health.

The effects of drug use vary depending on the type of drug being used. As you use the drug more often, your dependency on it does as well – this may lead to short term and long term effects.

Effects include, but are not limited to:

Short-term EffectsLong-term Effects
Panic attacks
Early on-set Alzhiemers
Stomach problems
Impaired cognitive function
Changes in memory

Signs of Drug Addiction and Drug misuse

Do you struggle with:

  • Secretive behaviour? Are you finding ways to avoid friends and family so that you can use drugs?
  • Making responsible financial decisions? Are you experiencing financial stress and having to ask to borrow money?
  • Physical dependence and increased tolerance to drugs?
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you use drugs – sleeplessness, tremors, nausea and seizures?

If you are experiencing any of the signs of drug misuse, call us for help. Your Road to Recovery starts here.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health says “People may turn to substances as a way of coping with difficult emotions or situations. They start to rely on substances to regulate their emotions” 

Drug misuse means drug use is causing problems in your life, and you need help. 

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