Back to Basics Early Recovery group is offered on-site

One of the most frequently identified gaps in service is a supporting program for individuals who are currently struggling with both chronic substance abuse and serious mental health issues. These individuals tend to "fall through the cracks" which currently exist in addiction and mental health systems, cycling repeatedly through both service sectors.. The Back to Basics" Recovery Group provides direct care services and facilitate an important linkage between mental health and addictions, providing a coordinated approach to client care. Utilizing a harm reduction, client centered approach, "Back to Basics" Recovery Group provides lifeskills training, education/awareness, relapse prevention strategies, and facilitate access to community resources.

Early Recovery Group is offered on-site

The great struggle for individuals is not in the decision to change because most people decide to change at some point but in the level of conviction in following through with that change. This educational group provides support for those who are struggling with a decision about committing to substance abuse treatment and to increase motivation to persist with treatment goals. To participate, individuals must be stable enough to engage in group discussions and have completed an alcohol and drug assessment.


Daytox is a structured, client-centred program for people who do not require residential detoxification to manage their withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs. This service offers education, individual and group support, as well as other treatment options.
