Step 1: On-Site Assessment
When clients walk through our doors, they are greeted by staff and escorted to a private area for discussion, assessment, and completion of paperwork. This initial on-site assessment helps determine the needed intensity of treatment services and level of care based on their presenting symptoms and conditions.
Step 2: Clinical Assessment
Based on the assessments’ findings, within 24 hours of admission clients undergo additional assessments that include a medical history, psychological evaluation, and physical. At this time, if there is a need for medications to help reduce or eliminate any withdrawal symptoms, our nurses obtain orders from licensed physicians.
Step 3: Tapering Programs
Tapering protocols signify approximately how long the drug detox or alcohol detox program will last, and the pace at which daily dosages of detox medications will be reduced. Detox tapering protocols are started according to physician’s orders. Withdrawal Experiences are Unique It is important to emphasize that each person’s withdrawal experience is unique based on:
- Substances used – Amount, frequency, and method
- Tolerance level – Increased or decreased
- Addiction severity – History and progression
- Co-occurring conditions – Mental health, medical, and chronic disease
Step 4: Transition to Treatment
The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that the longer the time between an individual’s detox and admission into a residential treatment program, the greater the risk of relapse. It is, for this reason, that following completion of our detox program, clients immediately transition to one of our addiction treatment programs.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is used to help people in recovery uncover problematic thoughts or feelings that may compromise their sobriety or contribute to a relapse. This form of therapy is also useful in treating co-occurring conditions, such as bipolar disorder.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
During dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), severe mental illnesses such as obsessive-compulsive disorder are treated in conjunction with a substance use disorder. This therapy aims to improve self-esteem, provide stress-management skills and encourage individuals in recovery to remove triggers from their life.
Motivational Enhancement Therapy
Motivational enhancement therapy (MET) is used to help individuals in recovery learn how to change any negative thoughts and behaviours attached to their addiction. This type of therapy is frequently used to treat people in substance abuse recovery who have co-occurring conditions, such as bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Psychodynamic therapy helps individuals explore their emotions to uncover how their subconscious thoughts relate to their addiction. This helps to identify the underlying cause for substance use. By working closely with therapists to acknowledge these deep-seated feelings, individuals are much more prepared to identify and avoid temptations during their ongoing recovery.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings provide a group of individuals that can all relate to one another on some level about their addiction to alcohol and how it has impacted their lives. Most AA meetings take place daily or weekly in a local setting, such as a church or community building. Open meetings encourage family members or loved ones to attend, while closed meetings are only for those in recovery themselves.
Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a support group modelled after Alcoholics Anonymous that provides a community of support for those recovering from an addiction to drugs. Members of NA motivate each other to stay committed to sobriety and avoid falling back into patterns of abuse. Meetings typically involve individuals sharing their stories of addiction and recovery.
An addiction counsellor’s role is to provide unbiased support for individuals going through a treatment program. Counsellors create an individualized plan for treatment and aftercare and conduct one-on-one or group therapy sessions.
