At Cirque Lodge, we believe that all three concepts are relevant to alcohol and drug addiction treatment.
Research has shown that the most effective treatment programs are adapted to suit the needs of each individual. Different people have different experiences of addiction and respond better to different models. Some concepts will be more useful to them than others.
If you are struggling with heroin addiction, you may feel you have no control over your substance use. It may not be helpful for someone to tell you that you can choose to stop using it. In this case, the disease concept of addiction may be more suitable.
On the other hand, if you are a recovering alcoholic who one day decided to stop drinking and maintained sobriety for years afterward, the choice model of addiction may make more sense to you.
At Cirque Lodge, we treat you as an individual. Our treatment program begins with an in-depth assessment by medical professionals to identify your individual needs. This includes a psychological, neuropsychological, and physical assessment.
Our rehabilitation program offers various approaches, including behavioral therapies, experiential therapy, support groups, dual diagnosis, and family therapy. Surrounded by mountains, our treatment facilities support a range of enriching practical activities so you can learn and reinforce skills in a unique way.
We design your program according to your needs to provide you with the most effective treatment.
