Canadian Family Health Collective believes Neural Network Therapy emerged in response to significant advancements in the field of neuroscience. The more we understand about our brain, the greater skill we find in re-routing unwanted patterns in behaviour. Patients can learn to balance our moods, to be addicted to healthy emotions and healthy habits. Clients can build strong meaningful relationships. We also provides relaxation techniques, nutrition, and fitness therapy.
Canadian Family Health Collective provides an education-based treatment and Neural Network Therapy to emotional health care. We provide counselling and education services with a practical approach to balance mood, break unwanted patterns and develop strong meaningful relationships.
Happiness is a habit. It’s hard to imagine that when we’re not feeling so good. Just the very same way we get hooked on alcohol or slot machines, we get hooked on our very own emotions. Same science. It’s the exact same science. Emotions are fuel. They are the fuel we use to run our lives. We are addicted to our emotions the way a car is addicted to its fuel. It’s kind of an important part of the equation. When we’re hooked on high-octane happiness, we feel energized, balanced and connected. When we’re hooked on a low crude-oil variety of emotions - we feel depressed, anxious, angry and overwhelmed. Our brains are so incredibly efficient that when we do anything repeatedly, we wire-up a neural network. This wiring-up process is really great news because it allows us to generate mindless patterns like brushing our teeth. Our neural networks enable us to get busy doing other things. But our brains don’t just wire-up the things we do, they wire-up the way we feel. Why does science matter to therapy? Well, we’ve discovered that the brain cannot tell the difference between something real or imagined. When we’re talking about something that’s happened in the past, our brains are firing-off the very same emotions as though that story was happening right here, right now. Some of us have really great imaginations. And sometimes… sometimes… we get stuck. We get stuck in the pain of the past and can’t seem to let go. We get stuck in arguments that circle around and around until we’re utterly exhausted. We get stuck in feeling guilty and responsible for everyone and everything. We get stuck in blaming others or looking for ways in which to be offended, and finding them. Any which way, we get stuck in our lives. This education-based approach will match your circumstances to an exercise, and you will leave each session with something you didn’t know coming in. You will begin to forge new and improved neural pathways, in place of old and unwanted ones.

Level of Care:

Holistic Treatment:

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Intensive Outpatient:

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.


Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Individualized Treatment:

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Sober Living Home:

Sober living houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

Treatment Focus:

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Therapy Programs:

Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Couples Therapy:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
