Adult Addictions Day Treatment Program

The Addictions Day Treatment Program is a two-week group program for individuals that require a more intensive and daily treatment option.

Individuals may benefit from this type of program if they recently left an inpatient treatment program (i.e. detox) or need more help making changes to their substance use and/or gambling after trying other community based treatment methods.

There is no cost for attending the program. Participants should bring their health card to the first group session.

The program includes:

  • A focus on increasing your understanding of addiction and recovery
  • Developing skills to improve your ability to cope with difficult emotions
  • Development of a personal recovery plan
  • Self-care practice while in the program and the support to continue recovery efforts in the community

A variety of topics and skills are explored such as: relapse prevention, refusal skills, how the brain is impacted by addiction, self-care strategies and healthy leisure options, mindfulness and coping with anxiety.
