Maple Leaf Farm’s mission is to help men and women recover from alcohol and drug addiction.
We understand the power of alcohol and drug abuse and addiction to destroy the lives of individuals and their families. We are committed to providing medical detox and inpatient treatment and support services of the highest quality to help our patients find rehabilitation and recovery. We will do whatever it takes to help our patients reach this goal. And we will never give up.
Chemical addiction is a chronic, life threatening disease which creates physical, mental and spiritual problems. By treating it as such, we at Maple Leaf Farm feel that the quality of life for those affected can be dramatically increased. At Maple Leaf Farm, the recovery of a substance dependence and addiction -free life is not merely a lofty aspiration, but an achievable goal, one that we help people to attain every day.
The effect is on the whole person’s lifestyle – personal, interpersonal (social), family, employment and recreation. The following statistics reflect the prevalence of addiction in our society and its effects:
- One out of 10 persons is affected, each of which impacts the lives of an average of two or three others.
- Over 100,000 addiction-related deaths occur annually. (conservatively estimated)
- Addiction represents an economic cost of over $120 billion annually.
- Approximately 50% of all hospitalized patients have substance abuse related illness or problems.
This disease can be arrested only by total abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals. The quality of life for those in recovery can be radically improved by the positive changes in attitude and lifestyle that the skilled counselors and staff at Maple Leaf can help teach and foster.
Maple Leaf Farm’s treatment model is based on:
Years of experience and success have shown that this is the only reliable path to sustained rehabilitation, recovery and happiness.
Becoming comfortable with NO alcohol and drugs.
This doesn’t mean becoming uncomfortable with your life. We can guide patients toward a full life that excludes mood-altering substances.
Personal growth treatment programs are based on the premise that each individual has the dignity, worth and right to recover. Recovery means growth, not stagnation or boredom.
Family disease concept.
If possible, we strive to include a patient’s most personal relationships – the family – into our treatment program.
Twelve step recovery program.
Probably the most successful approach to rehabilitation used, the Twelve Step program has helped many patients lead a fulfilling, chemical-free life.
Active involvement and interaction between patients and our skilled multidisciplinary professional staff.
Our experienced staff has the background as well as the diversity to help nearly everyone.
