What We Treat

At Neworld Medical Detox, we treat all forms of alcohol, chemical and drug dependency including prescription medications.

Over the last couple of years, nearly 77,000 hospitalizations due to alcohol abuse were recorded in Canada (CCSA). About 13% of accidents resulted from driving under impairment (MADD).

It is easy to assume that alcohol abuse is simply a one-off incident or even social drinking. This is probably one of the reasons why the condition does not receive the attention it needs.

Several symptoms could pinpoint alcoholism in an individual. They may be as commonplace as irritability, mood swings or secrecy and as worrisome as blackouts, memory loss or seeking complete isolation.

Neworld has treated several cases of alcohol dependency, successfully. We strongly believe that when the dependency is discovered at the right time the victim can be completely weaned off alcohol. To learn more about our treatment methods and facility, call Neworld today.

Methadone addiction and abuse is a problem that, unfortunately, is on the increase. Methadone is prescribed to patients because they have become addicted to other opioids. Methadone is meant to be a stepping stone to help users get off the other opioids and street drugs and allow the body to function just on it. Long-term methadone usage might not be suitable for everyone.

Methadone not a first choice

All patients have both a right to treatment and a right to refuse treatment. We also believe that patients on a methadone plan who wish to go for abstinence treatment should have the right to do so. Moreover, with some users, being on methadone maintenance does not stop them from abusing a lot of other drugs. This complicates the situation and might lead to a dangerous health risk.

We follow the most recent guidelines published by the Canadian Medical Association that recommends initiation of opioid agonist treatment (with buprenorphine–naloxone whenever feasible), to reduce the risk of toxicity, morbidity and death, and to facilitate safer take-home dosing. This is a strong recommendation; high-quality evidence. It is recommended to initiate opioid agonist treatment with methadone only when treatment with buprenorphine–naloxone is not the preferred option.

Buprenorphine–naloxone has several safety advantages over methadone, including a reduced risk of fatal overdose, as well as a lower potential for respiratory depression.

As per the recommendations, we believe that for individuals who express a desire for treatment simplification could be considered for a transition to buprenorphine–naloxone, because of its superior safety profile (six times safer than methadone in terms of overdose risk and far less likely to cause overdose related harm). It also allows for more routine take-home dosing and less frequent medical appointments.

When transitioning from higher daily doses of methadone, there is an increased risk of substantial withdrawal symptoms and consequent relapse. Inpatient treatment and supervised withdrawal management programs may be required for safe conversion in such cases.

At Neworld Medical Detox, we follow such guidelines and recommendations. Our methadone clinic Toronto offer patients, on methadone, an alternative. We implement a specially customized methadone detox protocol for each and every case to safely detoxify clients off their use. Whatever the client’s methadone dose might be, our medical director has a methadone prescribing license and can safely do the taper to allow clients to shift to a more manageable dose. He then puts clients on alternative medication that has a better safety profile compared to methadone, can stop craving and prevent withdrawal symptoms, before withdrawing all the opioids out of the body system. We ensure that we use the appropriate prescription medications to allow our clients to recover from methadone use without serious side effects and minimal withdrawals. We are experts in this process and do our best to make this safe and effective. Clients walk out free of their methadone! Clients feel great as the methadone dosing burden is off their shoulders!

Opiates

Medically prescribed to relieve traumatic pain, Fentanyl has nearly 50 to 100 times the strength of morphine. Over the past decade, deaths resulting from Fentanyl-overdose have doubled.

Why? This is because a modicum of Fentanyl is sufficient to cause an overdose. Should an individual under a clinical treatment of Fentanyl accidentally consume more, it could be fatal.

Fentanyl addiction is more commonly observed today because of the magnitude of pleasure the drug can produce. By blocking pain receptors in the brain, Fentanyl catalyzes the release of dopamine and endorphins, the primary pleasure-producing chemicals in the body. Fentanyl patches, sold colloquially as China girl, China White, TNT, and crush, are commonly used by smokers.

The first step to treating an addiction is awareness. Should you feel that a loved one is addicted to Fentanyl, contact Neworld, promptly. We can work on a tailored treatment plan to place your loved one on the path to recovery.

Originally prescribed as medication to wean off morphine addiction, Heroin turned into an addictive substance of its own with a much higher potency than morphine.

Common forms of Heroin are a whitish or brownish powder and “black tar”. It can be snorted, inhaled or injected directly into the intravenous system. Heroin suppresses the central nervous system, resulting in a state of euphoria commonly known as a ‘high’.

Frequent Heroin use leads to shortness of breath, dryness in the mouth and disorientation. Heroin abuse makes itself visible through symptoms such as agitation, impaired decision-making, slurred speech and poor memory.

Know a friend or a relative who exhibits these symptoms? Take action, right away. The experienced practitioners and tested treatment programs at Neworld can go a long way in helping with the rehabilitation of the victim.

Another commonly-prescribed pain reliever that is likely to be abused is OxyContin. Clinically, OxyContin is prescribed for mild to severe pain.

Clinicians generally moderate the frequency of OxyContin dosage to ensure that they are slow-paced. Immediate-release formulations of the drug, such as formats that are chewable, crushed or dissolved, take effect on the body very quickly.

OxyContin overdose or addiction can result in drowsiness; cause a short attention span and constriction of the pupils. Once treated, OxyContin withdrawal may cause nausea, diarrhea, shaking and chills. This is why it is recommended to treat the addiction in a clinical setting.

Should you notice similar symptoms in a loved one, do not hesitate to call Neworld, immediately. Help, at the right time, and, from trained individuals like our staff, can make a world of difference to your loved one’s journey to deaddiction.

10 times stronger than Opium, Morphine is its alkaloid, sourced from poppy seeds. It was popularly prescribed as an analgesic for pain and administered to soldiers during the US Civil War. This resulted in about 400,000 soldiers being addicted to Morphine, bringing to light the addictive properties of the drug.

Named after Morpheus, the Greek God of dreams, morphine dependency results in hallucinations. When morphine is consumed, it directly binds to the pain-modulating receptors in the brain. This, in turn, creates sensations of pleasure.

Aside from a feeling of euphoria and pain relief, Morphine induces drowsiness. Abuse of Morphine could result in nausea, vomiting, breathing difficulties, a loss of consciousness, and more. The most conspicuous symptom of Morphine abuse is the appearance of a blue lining on the lips and fingernails.

It is tough to watch a friend or a loved one undergo the trauma of Morphine addiction. But, know that help is always at hand. Reach out to Neworld Medical Detox for a personalized treatment and recovery plan.

Percocet is, again, a commonly administered pain reliever that is made of both oxycodone and paracetamol. It belongs to the opioid family of drugs.

Percocet also works with the pain-modulating systems in the brain, thus mitigating pain and spreading numbness. Percocet is famously-known as a “White Collar Heroin”, simply because the addiction begins at hospitals.

The abuse of Percocet leads to a sensation of euphoria. However, Percocet abusers usually resort to injecting the drug, further complicating the situation. The use of unclean needles by the abusers can result in the spread of blood-borne pathogens that might cause HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.

Percocet abuse can be fatal. If you fear that someone you know might be a potential victim of abuse, reach out to Neworld Medical Detox. Our highly responsive team attends to emergencies with skill and accountability.

Dilaudid or hydromorphone falls under the category of semi-synthetic narcotics. This simply means that Dilaudid is a chemical processed in laboratories.

Dilaudid is dangerous as a drug, specifically because victims develop tolerance to its properties very soon. This, in turn, causes victims of abuse to crave for higher dosages of the drug. The resulting physical dependence on the drug could very soon become life-threatening.

Common symptoms of Dilaudid abuse include a lack of a sense of responsibility and antisocial behaviour. Victims might also resort to committing crime, such as thieving, especially when access to the drug is cut off.

Neworld Medical Detox specializes in the treatment of the abuse of Dilaudid and several other drugs. Reach out to us to receive an immediate response on the treatment plans available to your loved ones.

Suboxone is a drug commonly prescribed to individuals so as to help wean them off their opioid addiction. In some unfortunate cases, Suboxone, by itself, turns into a drug that is abused.

In such situations, Suboxone abusers can be identified through the following symptoms: constantly stuffed or runny noses, fever, chills, sleeplessness, back pain and pain experienced during urination.

At Neworld Medical Detox, we take a holistic approach to designing treatments for individuals. Reach out to us to learn more about how we can help your loved one regain their wellbeing, both physically and emotionally.

Other Drugs

Popularly known as blow, coke, crack, rock and snow, cocaine can be sold as rocks, smoked or sniffed. When combined with Fentanyl, cocaine becomes even more deadly.

Cocaine functions by binding itself to the dopamine receptors in the brain, preventing its removal. In turn, this causes dopamine to accumulate, exacerbating its primary responsibility – generating a feeling of pleasure.

Common symptoms of cocaine abuse include disturbances in sleeping and eating patterns, a powdery white residue around the mouth or the nose, a loss of weight and a lack of inhibition resulting in increased risk-taking behaviour.

Cocaine addiction could soon become an overdose that is fatal to the abuser. If you find that somebody you know could potentially be exhibiting the aforementioned symptoms, do not wait. Call a renowned deaddiction center, such as Neworld. Begin with a consultation and understand how your loved one can be treated in a systematic clinical fashion.

Methamphetamine grew in popularity as a recreational drug, commonly used in clubs, rave parties and music festivals. In the streets, methamphetamine is referred to as meth, crank, chalk, speed, ice or glass.

Unlike a few of the drugs mentioned above, methamphetamine is illegal. Methamphetamine acts as a stimulant, which essentially means that it causes a surge in normal physiological reactions. Unlike relaxants, which result in a state of sedation and apathy, methamphetamine abuse can result in the victim experiencing hallucinations, an increase in heart rate and body temperature, anxiety, panic and, even, psychosis.

Similar to its contemporaries discussed before, methamphetamine brings about the above-mentioned symptoms by causing an increase in the release of dopamine. It is this excessively pleasurable sensation that abusers seek in methamphetamine.

If you find someone who shows these symptoms, it is critical that you call a rehabilitation provider. At Neworld, we have several years of experience treating methamphetamine abuse and can help your kith or kin reclaim their life.

Ketamine is a popular pain killer and tranquillizer, prescribed due to its ability to produce quick pain relief.

Ketamine abuse can be identified in the victim through the redness of the skin. Irritability, lack of coordination and agitated or anxious behaviour are other symptoms.

One-off use could soon become a debilitating dependence. Reach out to Neworld for timely rehabilitation and recovery.

Ecstasy – the drug carries several conniving labels, such as Dove and the Love Drug. Commonly consumed as capsules or tablets, Ecstacy can also be mixed with other drugs, exacerbating its manifestation.

Ecstasy does not have an abrupt effect on the abuser, rather, creating its addictive euphoric effect over a longer period of time. Typically, the pleasurable sensation kicks in after about 3 to 6 hours.

Psychologically, ecstasy increases a sensation of empathy. In contrast to other drugs, which, when abused, cause the victim to shun social contact, Ecstasy can actually enhance sociability. The regular consumption of Ecstasy could lead to a loss of appetite, blurring of vision, grinding of teeth (consequently, pain in the jaws), paranoia, hallucinations and elevated blood pressure. Seizures and heart attacks are possible manifestations of acute Ecstasy abuse.

As you can understand, the abuse of Ecstasy can be crippling. Get in touch with the practitioners at Neworld to offer a life-threatening condition the attention it deserves.

Gamma-hydroxybutyrate, once an over-the-counter drug that was favoured as a sleep inducer, is, today, an illegal drug, commonly used in clubs. Known as GHB amongst clinical practitioners, the drug also carries names such as Liquid Ecstasy, Scoop, Firewater, Gib, Cherry Meth, and Poor Man's Heroin, in the streets.

GHB was also, once, thought of as a supplement prescribed to help with weight loss and enhance one’s capabilities during workouts. In the 1900s, there were nearly 100 reported incidents of poisoning due to GHB. The drug soon lost its favour amongst medical practitioners, but picked up steam in clubs and parties.

s

GHB abuse can cause one to experience retardation in inhibitions, feel disoriented, exhibit poor coordination, a slower heart rate and eventually, lose consciousness. The abuser is similar to an anesthetic in its action, causing numbness or calming of the body’s systems.

GHB abuse may not be as prevalent as the abuse of some of its more popular peers, but can still be pernicious to the abuser. Should you believe that someone you know could be a potential victim of abuse, reach out to Neworld. We can help place your loved one on the path to recovery before it is too late.

Hallucinogens alter perception, causing a state of surrealism, which might seem very real to the abuser. LSD (D-lysergic acid diethylamide), Psilocybin, Peyote (mescaline) and DMT are examples of hallucinogens that could be abused. Dissociative drugs, such as PCP, Ketamine and Salvia are similar to hallucinogens in that they cause an individual to feel removed from reality.

Hallucinogens can be swallowed as tablets, pills or liquids, consumed raw or when dried, brewed into a tea, snorted, injected, inhaled, vaporized, smoked or absorbed through a patch. The abuse of hallucinogens could be fatal. Hallucinogen abuse causes the body temperature to rise resulting in tremors and palpitations, emotional swings, impulsive behaviour, panic attacks, paranoia and several other symptoms. Ultimately, hallucinogens can cause an individual to detach from reality and even harbour suicidal notions.

Hallucinogen abuse is a serious condition, but when diagnosed and treated on time, the prognosis can be positive. At Neworld, we have several years of experience treating the aforementioned conditions. We can help your loved one or friend uncover the path to lasting recovery.

Several other drugs, unbeknownst to us, could lead to dependency, hampering day-to-day living, at the least, and imposing a threat to life or death, at the worst. We, at Neworld Medical Detox, understand how distressing a loved one’s suffering can be, to you. That is why we have dedicated our lives to devising treatment plans that will set your friend, spouse or kin on the road to recovery, as early as possible. Reach out to us to learn more about the holistic treatments offered at our reputed five-star rehabilitation facility.

Prescription Medications

Several individuals with anxiety or panic attacks are prescribed benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, Activan, Klonopin and Valium, to mitigate the same. Today, the abuse of benzodiazepines is nearly three times the number it was, twenty years ago.

Unlike the class of drugs mentioned above, benzodiazepines augment the functions of a brain chemical that is responsible for inhibitions. Thus, the overuse of benzodiazepines results in a heightened state of despondency.

Double vision, retardation of reaction time, a loss of concentration and memory, confusion and a state of daze could result from benzodiazepine-abuse. Gastrointestinal issues and a numbing of emotions due to the abuse of benzodiazepines could easily lead to depression and suicidal intentions.

If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, reach out to a specialized deaddiction treatment center, such as Neworld. With several stories of successful rehabilitation to our name, we offer each case the undivided attention and care it deserves.

The wrong choice for a treatment program may lead to an unsuccessful withdrawal and a waste of money and time on top of creating frustration and agony.
