Community Treatment Program

Type of Service

Addictions Treatment - Substance Abuse

Program Description

Our mission is to help people who are dependent on drugs and alcohol become clean and sober and improve their quality of life through education, self-awareness and counselling (for patients committed to abstinence). Ongoing support is provided through various community treatment programs. Treatment planning consists of weekly meetings designed to assist the individual to engage or re-engage in their recovery while waiting for entry into another program. Partial programming is designed to support and meet the unique needs of those individuals who do not fit the stringent criteria of the comprehensive Chemical Dependency Program. Aftercare meetings take place on Tuesday evenings. Supporting personal growth and making life-long changes is the objective of aftercare. Family support sessions which are supportive and educational in nature and are offered monthly to family and are also open to the public. Community programs are a combination of both individual and group care with the goal of assisting the individual to: become aware of their illness and how it affects them, admit that they need help and that the disease cannot be cured, develop a plan to live with the disease in a positive way, and make changes to increase their functioning and improve their lifestyle.
