Withdrawal Management Program (Detox)

The Withdrawal Management Program helps people in crisis with substance use or gambling. Upon admission, staff helps people safely detoxify and manage the physical effects of their addiction. Afterwards, clients learn relapse prevention skills, plan their ongoing treatment and make contact with an addictions therapist and/or self-help group. We also offer personal and family counselling and assist with employability.
