Alcohol Addiction Treatment at Searidge Foundation for Ottawa, Ontario

Being our nation’s capital city, Ottawa, Ontario is sure to be very busy and a bit more fast paced than a typical Canadian city. Ottawa has a metropolitan population of 1.25 million people according to the census metropolitan area survey. With that many people living in a high profile city, turning to alcohol to ease the tensions of life may seem like a very tempting idea. However, if casual drinking turns into drinking everyday or needing alcohol just to function, this is often referred to as alcohol dependence, or alcohol addiction. Searidge Foundation is an Alcohol Rehab, offering the necessary tools and resources for managing alcohol addiction. Trying to manage alcohol addiction without treatment is extremely challenging and people often relapse as alcohol is very accessible. Without any help, this disease can very easily rob you of your career, your finances, your reputation and any goals you have for the future. Long-term addiction to alcohol often leads to severe health problems and may likely be fatal. According to the Ottawa Public Health board, alcohol is responsible for 140 deaths in Ottawa every year. In the year between 2014-2015, 3,553 Ottawa residents were treated for alcohol misuse in provincially-funded residential or community-based programs.

“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.”
