Program Overview

Our substance use disorder program is strategically designed to equip individuals to live substance-free. Each phase of recovery provides tools and motivation to maintain sobriety long after you finish the program. 


This part of the program blends cognitive behavioural models, group therapy, and the 12-step curriculum. We examine personal values and teach disciplined lifestyle habits that will be essential to your recovery success. Throughout your stay with us, we'll help you prepare a plan for a substance-free lifestyle.
