How Searidge Alcohol Rehab can help residents of Ontario

Ontario, Canada’s largest province, is home to a diverse population living in communities of all sizes, from small northern towns to massive southern cities. Ontario is home to many people from many walks of life, and a diverse and ever-growing population of many people from many places and many economic backgrounds. 

It is little wonder that in such a populated and busy place sometimes it can feel as if life’s stressors can get the better of a person, and sadly sometimes all that stress can cause a person to turn to substances to help them cope. 

Anyone can develop an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, regardless of demographics, religion, creed, gender, or race. Given the right circumstances, a drink here and there to “take the edge off’ can slowly become a dependence and that’s when things can go off the rails. Often alcohol use disorders are linked to deeper psychological issues, and can severely impact anyone in a vulnerable state. However, there is hope – many organizations across Ontario and Canada, including Searidge, are dedicated to helping those who struggle with alcohol use disorders, despite how daunting they may seem. The world shows no immediate signs of resolving its issues and while we would all over to live in a world free of pain and grief, for today the very best we can do is to find hope and healing from any unhealthy reliance on any substance.  Our skilled staff deeply understands the complex psychological ties that factor into any self-harming behavior and can tailor treatment plans accordingly.

Searidge Foundation invests in research, continually improving our treatment options. We can not be stagnant in our treatment approaches.

Our approach combines your unique personality, your strengths, and your triggers with proven scientific and psychological techniques that address addictive behavior and the underlying issues that contribute to it.

Nothing happens in a vacuum, and substance issues usually stem from other problems in one’s life.
Knowledge is power and once you know you can grow past the pain into a fresh new tomorrow of hope and infinite possibilities. 

We are close enough to get here and far enough away to help you reinvent yourself in a safe compassionate place, of beauty and understanding. 


When you think of Canada’s largest province I bet that several things may come to mind, Maple Leaf Hockey, Skydome, the CN Tower, and Niagra Falls to name a few. But Ontario is also home to pristine provincial parks, and thriving farming communities dot the landscape. 

Diverse and expansive  Ontario is more than just a place to work, nature lovers will love her acres of hiking trails and parks abundant in almost every town, village, and city alike. 

And Ontario can also lay claim to hosting the Feast of Fields Chef experiences, a tradition that quickly spread across the country. 

Music, Art, and Theatre are also hallmarks of the Ontario experience, with musicians of global renown calling her home. The innovative and world-market-ready industrial scene is no slouch here either. 

Often larger than life,  but always approachable, Ontario truly has earned the right to claim it’s open for business.

“My clients usually remark on how quickly they became comfortable with me in therapy, and are surprised at how much “just talking” is helpful to them. People find it easy to trust me and easy to talk about things with me that they have not talked with others about. People often come to me with problems with addictions, moods, anxiety, or difficulties in their relationships.

I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy that takes a life course developmental view of human growth. This means that our pasts impact our present, and that we are always growing. I also incorporate cognitive-behavioural, behavioural, and humanistic principles into my work.”
