Our Addictions program is an abstinence-based program that supports individuals as they work towards the goal of living an addiction free life. The Addictions Program focuses on the two stages of recovery.
Stage one addresses coming to terms with living addiction free and includes relapse prevention techniques.

The program provides a supportive framework in which people can safely address their particular life issues and the underlying psychological problems; as well as share creative solutions to help achieve the goal of abstinence that leads to a fulfilling and healthy life.
