SCHC is one of the only major addiction treatment centres in North America allowing clients to keep their smartphones and other electronic devices while in treatment.
Our smartphone-friendly policy recognizes that individuals receiving drug and alcohol treatment need to stay connected to family, friends, and work. A basic principle of evidence-based treatment is that outcomes improve when you treat people with respect. Trusting people to use their smartphones appropriately reflects our respectful approach to treatment.
