Addiction treatment programs are available in Red Deer with Insight Psychological and can provide pharmaceutical and psychological plans that involve intensive counseling both with the addict and sometimes with family members. Choosing the right program is a decision involving your doctor, your therapist and most importantly, yourself. If you do not feel comfortable with a certain treatment program, you should tell your counselor who will immediately implement a different program.

The right treatment – the right time

The right treatment program is one that you will successfully respond to and find beneficial in addressing your specific issues. Insights addictions counselors can interview you and suggest a treatment program that we believe is best suited to your needs.

Some of these programs include cognitive behavioural therapy, desensitization, and utilizing antidepressants which are helpful in regulating levels of serotonin and dopamine. These two neurotransmitters are often found to be insufficient in addicts and require medication to help stabilize levels.

Addiction counseling treatment programs also explore the cultural, racial and sexual orientation of an addict seeking help which further enhances the quality of the treatment plan.
