Check the current value of the American dollar against the Canadian dollar here.

U.S. Insurance Giants Must Give Clients More Choice for Rehab

After a year of battling with New York’s Attorney General Mario Cuomo, insurance giant UnitedHealth Group has agreed to revamp its system of determining how much to pay for drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation services. As part of the settlement, UnitedHealth Group will appoint and independent University to determine “reasonable and customary” rates for medical services, including treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. The fee databases created will be used by the entire U.S. insurance industry. Individuals will then be able to select the quality rehabilitation facility that best suits them and be reimbursed up to a maximum of the “reasonable and customary” rate determined in the database. Read the New York Times article on this topic.

Remember, as a Canadian residential rehab facility, Heritage Treatment Foundation offers far more bang for your buck than similar residential rehab facilities located in the U.S. How do we do it?

Evidence-Based Approach to Treating Addiction

At Heritage Treatment Foundation, we use the state-of-the art treatment techniques that scientific research indicates offer the best odds of long-term recovery from addiction. The foundation of our therapy is psychotherapy, including both cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy. CBT is a cornerstone of rehab therapy worldwide. It is designed to identify and modify behaviors and beliefs associated with addiction. Psychodynamic therapy helps clients identify and understand the origins of these unhealthy behaviors and beliefs.

But we also provide care beyond these core strategies. Clients who need them can also benefit from family interventions, restorative justice sessions, massage, exercise, nutritional therapy, and several other therapeutic services. At Heritage Treatment Foundation, we are dedicated to offering you the best available holistic care. In that light, we make it a priority to remain up-to-date on the latest addiction research in order to offer the best available state-of-the art treatments.

Specialized Programs at Heritage Treatment Foundation

As part of our specialized programs, we offer each client a unique combination of both traditional and alternative treatments.

Traditional treatments include:

Psycho-educational therapy: This type of therapy helps you understand your emotional and behavioral difficulties. It can help you gain control of undesirable behaviors, such as getting high. Over time, behavior occurs less often and is usually less severe in intensity and duration.

Psycho-educational techniques are also used to assist individuals and their families to understand the harmful results of substance abuse and to help them help themselves and their loved ones. This mutual understanding assists families in building supportive relationships, developing empathy, and finding healthy ways of coping with substance abuse.

Behavioral Therapy: This therapeutic method focuses on modifying or "unlearning" an unhealthy behavior, such as drug abuse, without considering any of the underlying causes. This is achieved by applying basic learning techniques, for example, finding effective and immediate ways of responding to triggers and chemical urges.

Cognitive Therapy: This psychotherapeutic approach focuses on changing your inaccurate beliefs. With a therapist, you explore how emotional problems can be the result of faulty ways of thinking and distorted attitudes towards yourself and others. The therapist then helps you correct and revise this negative thinking by examining the positive and negative results of behaviors and beliefs. For instance, cognitive therapy for a gambler might involve challenging your perceived odds of winning or ability to control the outcome.

Psychodynamic Therapy: This treatment helps you trace unhealthy behaviors to their origins to help you understand underlying and often unconscious forces that mold your personality, influence your attitudes, and produce emotional disorder. Once you have learned effective coping skills, you may want to understand the underlining causes of addiction as a means of resolving trauma, improving self-esteem, developing healthy relationships, and lessening the risk of relapse.

Alternative treatments include:

Human Relations (applied psychology): This therapy helps you explore intrapersonal reflection, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, facilitation, and trauma. This participatory process is designed to combine practical training with theoretical knowledge. You can, for example, learn strategies for resolving conflict and use this new found knowledge in role-play scenarios, modules, and real life examples. This approach reinforces learning and provides opportunity to develop skills in using these techniques.

Creative Arts Therapies: This integrates drama, theater, art, music, and other creative modalities with psychotherapeutic approaches to treatment. Specific techniques like psychodrama, sociodrama, puppetry, masks, role playing, and role training can help you discover new ways of changing old dysfunctional patterns of behavior as well as develop personal and emotional growth, ego development, catharsis, enhanced social skills, and a healthier quality of life.

Traditional Native Healing: This is based on cultural beliefs from the North American aboriginal people of Turtle Island (North America). The healing ceremonies are lead by a native elder and include:

  • Healing Circle: This is one of the most powerful native ceremonies. It brings people together through sharing and support. Many times a healing circle is followed by a sweat lodge to help in the healing.
  • Sweat Lodge: This experience reconnects us to the Mother Earth and to ourselves in a very safe and loving environment. The lodge is used for healing in all native cultures. It is a very sacred ceremony.

Amenities at Heritage Treatment Foundation

Cuisine: At Heritage we provide you with wholesome and hearty meals based on Quebecois cuisine. You will enjoy produce supplied by local farmers and merchants. Wholesome meals satisfy the body component of holistic healing. Often during the cycle of addiction people are not eating properly throughout the day, so when you come to Heritage, you will appreciate and enjoy the variety of food provided. When you arrive, we will assess your dietary requirements. If you are diabetic, allergic to certain foods, or have dietary restrictions due to their religious beliefs, we accommodate their needs.

Lodging: At Heritage we are pleased to offer you your own private room with bath. We understand that the therapeutic process can be emotionally, physically, and spiritually draining, so we provide a place where you can regenerate in privacy. Our rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. We also provide maid service to enable you to focus on more important things than cleaning.

Spa Treatments: Heritage offers spa treatments that not only help restore peaceful energy, but helps rid the body of harmful toxins. The following is a list of spa treatments we offer:

  • Facial & Scalp Massage
  • Ion Cleansing
  • Reflexology
  • Shiatsu
  • Swedish Massage

Therapeutic Recreation: Research indicates that your ability to enjoy life in healthy and fun ways increases quality of life and limits risk of relapse. That is why we include therapeutic recreation into our holistic program. Depending on the season, we offer a variety of recreational activities that include but are not limited to:

  • Sports: Biking, Kayaking, Riding, Skating, Skiing, Swimming
  • Outings: Apple Orchard, Bird Sanctuary, Bowling, Dairy Farm, Maple Sugar Shack, Tour of Montreal

Gym: We provide the physical component of holistic healing through on-site use of our gym. We have a trained health and fitness staff member who will guide you back to cardiovascular and strength training health. Available equipment includes a treadmill, cycle, free weights, and weight station.

Aftercare Program

We prepare you for the future with:

An Exit Plan: When you are ready to leave us, we want you to be prepared for a fresh new beginning. We want you to feel confident and primed for the outside world. Our exit plan is tailored to your individual needs – showing you the appropriate tools necessary to face the future ahead. For example, we can help you design a résumé that will raise your chances of acquiring the job you want; we can help you figure out your talents and help you choose the right career path; we can surely help you investigate the proper schools to attend; or, where to live.

Our intent is for you to feel safe to leave our Drug Rehab Center. Maybe we can find a sober living environment or half-way house to help you with the transition; or, help with the move back to your family home. It is up to you to decide. Our goal is yours.

A Post-Treatment Plan: Our job doesn’t end when your time with us does. We would like you to keep in touch. After you leave us, we encourage you to keep us updated about your progress back home and whether all is going as planned. We also encourage you to call us in desperate times of need. Even from a distance, we still care. Sometimes talking to a familiar voice that has gotten to know you well can make all the difference between sobriety and plunging back into darkness.

“Even from a distance, we still care.”
