At Addiction Rehab Toronto, Addiction Education means providing our clients with evidence-based stigma free support and resources but also providing the outside world with partnership, collaboration and offering accessible education on Addiction within Canada.
At Addiction Rehab Toronto, we advocate a mental health stigma-free environment. We are actively involved in the conversations about Addiction, Addiction stigma and how they work together to stigmatize Mental Health. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive, safe, and non-judgmental space for Addiction education.
We understand the importance of providing people with the most accurate information because we know that Addiction comes from or is activated by mental health, trauma, grief, life, and much more. We know there are many myths about Addiction, and our job is to debunk them.Our values are that we need to provide Addiction education to relieve the suffering of an individual from physical, emotional, spiritual and mental pain. We educate individuals to understand that “saying no” is not that easy – there are intersectional complications and that we must take a more holistic, trauma-informed approach to Addiction treatment.
