Drug addiction takes control of your life, we can help you regain your life back, free from the obsession to use drugs.
Are you abusing drugs and thinking about drug rehab?
Drug addiction is a pathological or abnormal condition which arises due to frequent drug use. The disorder of addiction involves the progression of recreational drug use to the development of drug-seeking behaviour, vulnerability to relapse, and a gradual decrease in the drug user’s ability to respond to naturally rewarding stimuli.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM-IV) has categorized three stages of addiction: preoccupation / anticipation, binge / intoxication and withdrawal / negative effect. These stages are characterized by constant cravings and preoccupation with obtaining the substance; using more of the substance(s) than necessary to experience the intoxicating effects; and gaining tolerance, experiencing withdrawal symptoms, and decreased motivation for normal life activities. Last Door treats addiction for illegal drugs as well as prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Recovery at Last Door is a way of experiencing life. This “social” model program offers clients and their families an opportunity to experience recovery in an actual community. Recovery at Last Door is neither a destination nor a goal; it is about gaining a feeling of connectedness within a healthy community. It is about sharing and caring, about being part of something larger than oneself that gives both foundation and a sense of hope for the future.
Last Door draws on the collective experience and energy of alumni, clients, their families and staff to forge a community that is conducive to creating a solid foundation for recovery. The Last Door Recovery community is vibrant and alive – with both giving to and taking happening between community members. Purpose and dignity are the building blocks for the self esteem that is so crucial to recovery – both flow abundantly within the community.
