Program Description

The Genesis Day Treatment program is a 16 week day treatment program for youth ages 12-18. The program offers support for adolescents who are struggling with mental health and addiction concerns. The day consists of individual and group counselling, outdoor activities, healthy active living, life skill building, community resources, guest speakers and academics. Upon entry assessments are completed to determine the amount of substances that the adolescents are using. With this information it provides a starting point for the counsellor to work with the individual to start setting goals around making changes in substance use. If the adolescent successfully completes the 16 weeks of program a Healthy Active Living credit will be granted by the teacher on staff.
