Youth Addiction Programs

Residential Treatment

Sister Margaret Smith Centre Youth Addiction Programs provides a five-week intensive substance abuse treatment program for youth from age 16 to 19. This program uses a harm reduction, cognitive behavioural approach to recovery, which focuses on changing behaviour through examining beliefs and values. It includes group therapy, individual counselling, education sessions, and life skill development, introduction to self help, leisure and recreation opportunities, and relapse prevention. The multi-disciplinary team consists of addiction counsellors, youth workers, a therapeutic recreationist, a problem gambling counsellor, and a spiritual advisor. Community resources are brought in to supplement the programming, including the Children's Centre Thunder Bay, a physician, consulting psychologist and a Native spiritual worker.
