We are located 45 minutes outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia on the Eastern Shore.
We are an addictions recovery treatment center that offers residential programs on 10 acres of beautiful ocean property with luxury accommodations and a five-star menu provided by our experienced chefs.
We offer 21 to 90 day treatment programs that are personalized to client needs. Our programming follows solid nutrition, recreation and spiritual components aligned with the needs and interests of clients.
At Terradyne, we understand that many factors contribute to an addiction and we believe that treatment is not one-size-fits-all approach. Instead of using one standard form of treatment, Terradyne offers personalized treatment plans that individualize the recovery process. We believe in meeting the individual where they are at and utilizing a multitude of therapeutic approaches to best meet their needs. Our clinicians will help the individual establish attainable goals, monitor their progress, and make adjustments to the treatment plan when necessary. Our therapists employ narrative, cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and other identified therapeutic techniques and interventions based on the needs of clients in order to help them succeed. We also employ mindfulness, recreational therapy and nutrition planning to help clients get on the right track.
Essentially, at Terradyne, we believe that when a person has a treatment plan in place that is tailored to their specific needs and is meaningful to them that it will result in better outcome for long-term success. Our end work with clients includes building robust safety plans to prevent relapse, helping our clients to live the lives they desire.
We implement aspects of a 12-step recovery plan in our personalized plans developed in collaboration with clients, which includes introducing clients to regular Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
At the moment, we are focused on offering residential programs, but we offer online classes via Zoom for our aftercare program post-treatment.
At Terradyne Wellness Clinic, we understand that substance use disorder impacts more than just the individual and we believe that family members can play a vital role in their loved one’s recovery. Our Family Care Program provides a space for family members to be part of the recovery process and gives everyone the chance to have a voice in a safe, therapeutic environment. We offer substance use disorder education, family counselling sessions facilitated by experienced therapists, and the opportunity to learn about relapse risk factors and prevention tools. Over most other rehab centers, Terradyne aims to equip families so they can continue to support family members in their continued recovery journey. Our focus is on rebuilding damaged connections and fostering a sense of clarity and optimism moving forward. While our priority is healing the individual, we believe that involving and helping to heal the family is a key factor in long-term success.
The chances of a successful recovery (one year consistent clean time) triples for those that stay connected to recovery based activities and groups. Terradyne offers clients 30 days of online psychoeducation classes post-treatment. This can be extended at the discretion of the client.
