Custom At-Work Alcohol Rehab Programs in Ontario

At-work alcohol addictions are more common than you may think. Newgate 180 is a non-profit alcohol rehab centre that works closely with companies, unions, and organizations throughout Ontario to help them with current or potential alcohol abuse and addiction issues among their staff. We offer at-work programs and resources that give organizations the tools and information they need to properly support staff and help them get back to work quickly and efficiently.

Along with at-work programs and resources, we also host staff members from companies, unions, and other organizations at our facilities for approximately a month where they receive comprehensive alcohol addiction treatment. After their stay at Newgate 180, they will receive 11-months of ongoing care to help support the employee as they return to the workplace as a happy, productive staff member.

By coming to our website you have made the first, and most important step in recovery. Newgate 180 is here to help you immediately. You will not be put on a waitlist – you will be welcomed into our facility.

To begin, you will complete a comprehensive assessment and your counsellor will develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. We know each client is unique and we do not use a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. We offer a minimum of 2-3 individual counselling
sessions per week in which you can share whatever’s on your mind. We will help you address factors that contribute to your use of alcohol, such as depression, anger, PTSD, financial problems, relationship difficulties etc. You will work with a Relapse Prevention Counsellor to develop your own Recovery Plan that will be your personalized “road map” for when you leave Newgate.

Through our holistic program that includes individual and group counselling, art therapy, AA, yoga, fitness training, leisure/recreation, and proper nutrition, you will learn how to create a life worth living without alcohol.

At the Newgate 180 rehab centre you will rediscover your values and develop your sense of worth. As you become increasingly well mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, you will discover a renewed sense of meaning and purpose. We don’t just want you to heal – we want you to thrive.

Reasons to Choose Newgate 180

Newgate 180 is an industry-leading addiction treatment centre that welcomes clients from across Canada, the U.S., Europe, and even Australia. We don’t just treat your addiction; we help you improve mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. With a long, distinguished history of success, there are a lot of reasons to choose Newgate 180:

  • We will stay by your side for a full year. Our 30-day residential program is followed by 11 months of ongoing care. Our ongoing care program is offered by Skype and telephone, so we can support you no matter where “home” may be for you.
  • You can access our services immediately; in many cases we can admit a client within 24 hours.
  • Our comprehensive holistic approach.
  • Individual and group counselling.
  • We have extensive therapy and treatment options, including art therapy, meditation, yoga, fitness training, leisure/recreation, healthy eating coaching, acupuncture, reiki, and AA.
  • We offer a combination of gender-specific and co-ed programming and welcome both men and women into our program, and have two separate facilities.
  • Rooms are private (single occupancy) or semi-private (double occupancy).
  • We believe that having both genders enriches many of the therapeutic groups. We also recognize that certain topics are most effectively dealt with in “men only” and “women only” groups.
  • We work with families to help them understand addiction and offer guidance on how to support a loved one who is in recovery. We know that addiction affects the whole family and we want to help heal unhealthy dynamics, rebuild trust and ensure all parties have the support they need.
  • Our main facility is located on the river in the town of Merrickville. The natural beauty of the river, trees, and gardens creates a peaceful and inviting setting.
  • Both the men’s and women’s residences have a comfortable, welcoming, ‘non-institutional’ feel that for many make Newgate feel more like a home than a treatment centre.

What is Alcoholism?

If you are reading this, chances are you or someone you care about has a problem with alcohol.

Some of the common warning signs include:

  • the need to drink in order to feel better or to relax
  • needing to drink more than before to feel the effects
  • losing control over how much or how often you drink
  • memory loss or “blackouts”
  • withdrawal effects (shakiness, nausea, irritability etc.)

What Causes Alcohol Addiction?

It is generally accepted that addiction to any substance is not caused by a single factor, but rather by a combination of genetic and environmental influences.

How do I Know if I’m an Alcoholic?

Do you find yourself drinking more than you meant to? Perhaps you need more and more alcohol to feel the effects and are often hungover. Maybe you are binge drinking (5+ drinks for men, 4+ drinks for women within several hours), making poor decisions, acting out in ways that you later feel embarrassed about, and being unable to remember parts (“brown out”) or all (“blackout”) of the time you were drunk. These are just a few signs that alcohol could be a problem in your life.

Other possible signs of alcoholism include:

  • You feel resentful and defensive when loved ones express concern about you and your drinking.
  • You are trying to hide the extent of your drinking.
  • You find yourself drinking and driving, or engaging in other risky behaviours.
  • You are preoccupied with thoughts of drinking even though you want to stop or slow down.
  • You are losing control and feel helpless and ashamed, and have no idea how you ended up in this downward spiral.

Trust us when we say, you are not alone. Alcoholism and alcohol abuse affect millions of families. Newgate 180 can help, so contact us today—hope is only a click away.
