The Four Elements of Our Treatment
The proper functioning of your body including strength, stamina and mobility.
Your thoughts, feelings and emotions that directly impact your actions.
Your relationship to family, friends, work colleagues and the larger community.
A sense of meaning that brings purpose to your life and good to the world.
Medical & Psychiatry
Our medical and psychiatric services include assessment and diagnosis, withdrawal management (detox), medication management, psychotropic drug therapy, and ongoing monitoring throughout your stay. Medical and psychiatric assessments form the basis of treatment plans and are critical to treating any co-existing mental health issues.
Our counselling therapies help clients explore how they see the world and their place in it, with the goal of personal healing and growth. Our clinical staff is trained in numerous therapeutic techniques such as Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectic Behavioural Therapy. Counsellors use techniques that best suit the client.
Our Integrated Health team provides fitness and nutrition consultations for all clients and continues to work with clients throughout their stay to develop their personalized treatment plan. Clients also see massage therapists and an Occupational Therapist.
Our clients are regularly out in the community with staff engaging in a number of non-fitness activities such as shopping, attending movies, helping out with vulnerable youth, and enjoying annual events like Canada Day and the local Blackberry Festival.
Recreational services are an important part of a healthy lifestyle that encourages not only physical health, but social health as well. Recreation is also an important part of developing a long-term recovery plan that helps replace the hours spent consuming drugs and alcohol.
Unlike most treatment facilities, we are careful not to enforce spiritual exploration. While we believe a spiritual life can be incredibly helpful, insisting it is unhelpful and creates frustration. With us, spiritual activities are strictly voluntary and include discussion groups, 1-1 counselling sessions, and transportation to and from local churches.
