Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is residential treatment?
What are the different kinds of substance recovery options available?
- In-Patient treatment programme
- Out-patient treatment programme
- Aftercare programme
What should I expect while being treated for substance dependency?
Service users entering the programme can expect to find a centre staffed with helpful and compassionate professionals who are committed to providing a holistic and relevant start to your recovery.
Can I leave recovery once admitted?
All treatment programmes are voluntary, and as such are not compulsory. If the service user chooses to leave the programme it is at their own choice. However, the longer you stay in a programme the more chance you have of your recovery being more stable and long term.
How long is the program?
Out-patient programme is 8 weeks long consisting of 1 individual therapy session per week.
The Aftercare programme is as long as you want it to be (we recommend that this programme be no shorter than 4 months though). This programme includes active participation in the support group that happens every Thursday at 6pm.
What do I bring to recovery?
What type of involvement should my family have with my treatment program?
Part of the treatment programme is making amends for what has occurred during active addiction, and most often this requires the participation of family and loved ones.
Can my family or friends visit me in the recovery center?
The visitors are selected by the service user on admission and only those chosen will be allowed to visit.
What happens after addiction recovery?
However the service user is discharged from the treatment programme after a period of time and is then encouraged to enter into the aftercare programme.
Will my information be kept confidential?
What languages are available?
Do you have a recovery program for children and teens?
Things you’ll do in Substance Dependency Recovery?
Cry, laugh, joke, process, learn, forgive, admit, think, listen, imagine, work, engage, interact, grow…
What is the intake process like?
The VERY first step – an assessment has to occur before any form of treatment programme can be recommended or decided upon. This assessment can be scheduled by phoning the office and making an appointment.
During the assessment the process for the programme chosen will be discussed with the service user and family who have attended the assessment.
