Glossary of Terms

Some of these terms may not be familiar to you:

Assessment: This is the process we undertake prior to your admission in order to ascertain your specific requirements. We also aim to insure that our programme is a strong match to your specific challenges.

Detoxification: This is the process of weaning your body off the substances it is physically addicted to, and it applies particularly to alcohol or heroin (or other opiates). Cocaine and Ice (crystal meth) do not require high levels of medication to withdraw from; opiate detoxification will be managed closely to reduce the level of physical discomfort during withdrawal, and the same applies to alcohol detoxification.

Rehab: This term generally describes a residential experience, e.g. living permanently at a facility for an extended period of time. Being at Rehab involves a broad range of individual and group therapies, as well as physical, holistic and psycho-educational training (programs offered at different facilities will vary considerably). The objective of Rehab is to work with clients to achieve mental, emotional, spiritual and physical changes, such that they are able to return home to go on to live their lives in Recovery.
At The PARC, our primary purpose is for our residents to achieve lasting recovery. One of our pillars of treatment has us focusing heavily on unleashing the  creativity in our residents (what we call creative recovery) so as to permit our residents to realise their own fun side and discover things in life that give them great pleasure (aside from the substances or behaviours that fed their addiction). Typically this is things like music, art, comedy, dancing, sports, etc.

Therapy: Therapy can take many forms. In addiction treatment, therapy refers to the treatment of underlying physiological, psychological and behavioural conditions. Current research has revealed that addiction, more often than not, is caused by more than one underlying factor. Addiction therapy aims to diagnose these underlying causes, so that therapy can treat the person as a whole, rather than treating specific symptoms in isolation.

Aftercare: This term refers to a client’s extended treatment (after completion of the residential programme). Aftercare is a critical part of a client’s recovery, as it aims to ‘reintegrate’ the person into everyday life while ensuring that the foundations of recovery are maintained and developed.
