Is it right for me?
This treatment is designed for male and female Ontarians aged 16 and over with a long history of severe and persistent co-occurring addiction and mental health problems, including court-mandated individuals and clients usually refused admission to other programs because of psychotropic medication use. Typically, clients have multiple and complex clinical/social and other related needs which often remains unmet through programs of lesser intensity and structure, such as Day treatment.
What is involved in this treatment program?
This is an intensive, structured 28 day live-in treatment, recovery, housing and support in a therapeutic community environment, designed for (but not exclusively) hard-to-treat populations with a history of severe and persistent co-occurring addiction and mental health problems. Through a holistic approach, client progress is intensely monitored and services include individual & group counseling, educational sessions, interactive workshops, peer support, life skills training and discharge planning/preparation for reintegration to home and family, school/work/life, and/or referral to longer-term treatment and rehabilitation.
