Searidge Alcohol Rehab serving Newfoundland & Labrador

Welcome to Searidge, where Canadians struggling with Alcohol Use Disorders are warmly embraced. Newfoundland & Labrador, also known as “The Rock,” is known for its rich history, natural beauty, and prosperity. However, we must not forget the problem that often goes unnoticed by many – Alcohol Use Disorders.

We want you to know about our wellness center in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. If you or someone you know has a hard time not drinking alcohol, we can help. Our center is far enough away so you can feel better and not be tempted to drink alcohol. But it’s not too far for your family and friends to visit you.

Newfoundland & Labrador is a place where friendly and strong people live. They have faced some problems like other people in Canada. Unfortunately, some people have been using alcohol to feel better. But this is not a good solution because it only makes the problems worse. The problems will still be there the next day even if someone drinks alcohol.

We help people who drink too much by teaching them how to understand what makes them want to drink and how to deal with problems without drinking. We teach them how to know themselves better and find their strengths. We can’t fix everything, but we can help people feel stronger and healthier with a whole toolkit to maintain sobriety.

The importance of Aftercare: Recovery that stays with you through the strength of Community

At Searidge, we think it’s important for people who are trying to stop using drugs or alcohol to have people who support them. That’s why we have a special program for people who have already stopped using, where they can join meetings with others who are also trying to stay healthy. We have meetings every week on Zoom, and we think it’s important that these meetings are easy to join and that people can come whenever they want. We want to help people stay healthy and happy!

Our group of alumni always supports one another without judgment. Every person in the group has gone through tough times, but with the help of Searidge’s tools and training, they have come out stronger, smarter, and more capable of handling tough situations.

If you or someone you know has a problem with alcohol, it’s time to do something about it. We can help you find ways to change the situation. Just give us a call to learn more. It’s time to start a new and better part of your your Hero’s Journey together today. 

Newfoundland & Labrador

Flanked by the Mighty Atlantic, with enough coast line to wrap the whole country twice, Newfoundland and Labrador sometimes called “The Rock” , is home to the kindest people, and the most jaw-dropping scenery, both on and off land.
Newfoundland and Labrador is so unique that it even sports its own dictionary!

The treasures abundant in this land are the stuff of dreams, and her windswept shores invite and welcome you to explore each crevice, embrace each scent, and culinary delight, and marvel at her natural splendour. Oh and also try on literally every article of clothing you brought with you, if you’re a CFA that is. Of course, the locals know that layering is the best way to get through any day. 

CFAs can expect to enjoy Iceberg Viewing, Whale Watching, Hiking and walking, Bird watching, exploring her Living Heritage and any one of the many festivals and events that happen in all seasons. 
Locals know their island home, she is warm and welcoming and they will never allow any weather whether she’s “not fit” or” best kind” to stand in the way of a great time, a song at the ready, a meal in the pot and a warm welcome awaits in every home.

Searidge Sponsored SMART Recovery® Meetings

SMART Recovery® is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying.

SMART Recovery® is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an “alcoholic”, an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that’s fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. When you succeed at following our approach, you may graduate from the program, or you may stay around to help others.


Searidge Alcohol Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to our alumni to help ensure their sobriety is sustained. SMART Recovery® group meetings have proven to be incredibly beneficial to our Searidge alumni. SMART Recovery® meetings give our graduate residents the tools and support they require to remain sober.


All SMART Recovery® meetings are held on Zoom please go to our SMART Recovery® Nova Scotia website at to learn more or sign up to attend a meeting.
