Self Description:

"Long term residential treatment for men, women, youth and dependent children."

Treatment Philosophy:

"Holistic approach dealing with contributing factors that lead to addictive behaviours."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"Due to the complexity of multi-faceted programming, persons on medication are frequently unable to realize full benefits and as such we are reluctant to accept persons requiring mental health services."

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

"We do not incorporate 12 Step programming as it contradicts our belief that addiction is caused by many factors and is not an illness or disease."

Position on Confrontation:

Is considered an effective tool in selected, appropriate cases."

Additional Characteristics:
