While addiction is frequently associated with illicit drug use, most addictions are related to either legal substances, such as alcohol or tobacco, or prescription abuse, including opioids, pain relievers, sedatives, and stimulants. Among Canadians who have been prescribed stimulant medications, 19% have reported misusing or abusing them, while the same can be said for 5% of people prescribed psychoactive medications, 12% of people prescribed opioid pain relievers, and 1% of people prescribed sedatives (source:

Abusing prescription or non-prescription substances can lead to dependence and a drastic decrease in quality of life. At The Newly Institute, we have developed a series of addiction counselling programs that will help you develop healthy coping mechanisms, reduce your cravings and dependence, and prevent relapse. We provide world-class trauma therapy, and other comorbid mental health disorder therapies to help people recover, and stay recovered, from addiction.
