It appeared to Gerald Sidel, after much research into drug and alcohol rehabilitation, that there was a great need for an english drug and alcohol treatment facility in Montreal. Thus, in July of 1990, Le Centre de Rehabilitation Addington House Inc. was created.

Addiction to prescription painkillers is a disease that has become increasingly prevalent in Canada and elsewhere. Physicians commonly prescribe opiates, or narcotic pain medications, such as Vicodin and OxyContin to treat pain. Often, patients continue taking their medication as prescribed and become physically dependent upon the drug. This means that even if they want to stop taking the medication, it becomes extremely uncomfortable due to symptoms of withdrawal. The initial dose soon isn't enough to make the pain bearable and higher doses are needed. When this happens, a biological process is triggered and your body is physically addicted to the substance. This means that it is necessary to maintain a base level of the drug in your system at all times to avoid devastating withdrawal symptoms in addition to the original pain for which the prescription was necessary. Now, in addition to severe pain, you are also dealing with a potentially fatal painkiller addiction.
Prescription drugs are hooking millions of people and causing devastating consequences to their lives and the lives of their families. It may start off innocently enough, you may have an accident and a doctor may prescribe medication to stop the pain, before you know it you may be taking more and more because the pain just won't go away. This can be the subtle nature of painkiller abuse. It may work fine in the beginning, but you will begin to build up a tolerance to the medication and the next thing you know you are in constant pain unless you take the medicine. It is at this point that painkiller addiction has set in.
