Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioids are a family of powerful, highly addictive drugs.

What is an Opioid Drug and Opiate Addiction?

Opioid drugs, or opiates, are often prescribed by doctors to help people manage severe pain. But these drugs are also often over-used and misused, leading to opioid addiction.

Types of opioid drugs include:

  • codeine
  • fentanyl
  • morphine
  • oxycodone
  • hydromorphone
  • heroin

Opioids are highly addictive and dangerous drugs. Overdoses are common when people take too much of an opioid and it slows down their breathing, leading to unconsciousness and even death.

Opioid use changes your brain and the body in ways that can make it hard to stop using. This is because your body gets used to a regular supply of the drug. If you stop using the opioid, or lower your dose quickly, you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms.

At Renascent, we offer an opioid addiction treatment program that addresses your complete individual needs, supporting you through the detox process and giving you tools for lasting healing and recovery.

There are opioid dependence treatment options available to you. Our team of registered psychotherapists and certified drug addiction specialists will help tailor a treatment program just for you.

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

We are proudly accredited and in good standing with the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. This means that we routinely undergo an extensive review of our practices and procedures to ensure they meet the rigorous standards for quality of care, and organizational performance. In the current unregulated marketplace of addiction treatment providers, accreditation is how we set ourselves apart from the less reputable providers who can make some of the same claims as we do, but do not provide the quality of care necessary to fulfill those claims.

As part of this intensive process, independent third-party accreditation specialists regularly spend months reviewing and evaluating every aspect of our organization, from our policies and procedures to our facilities. All staff are interviewed to ensure that they are properly certified for the work they do, and that we are routinely receiving the most up-to-date training in areas such as Non-Violent Crisis Prevention and First Aid and CPR. In this way, the accreditation specialists can determine that staff at all levels of our organization are meeting their obligations both to our clients and within the organization, with integrity. The renewal process occurs every four years, which means we are consistently upgrading to meet the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's standards.

There are three accrediting bodies that are recognized by Ontario:

  • Accreditation Canada, which specializes in hospitals and offers a primer course for organizations considering accreditation;
  • Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA), which is Ontario-based (but operates country-wide) and specializes in community-based agencies;
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is an American firm.

We chose to undergo the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's process because of their community-based specialty, their Ontario/Canadian foundation, and their philosophy, which is that they are partners with agencies and not only provide peer review audit/surveys, but also provide support to agencies in developing their protocols in order to achieve accreditation.
