- Outpatient service agencies are the starting point for families and individuals concerned about their own or others’ use of alcohol or other drugs
- Most people with substance use problems can be adequately helped on an outpatient basis. Outpatient services are available in every health region. Qualified addictions rehabilitation counsellors provide a whole range of services, including assessments, intensive one-on-one and group counselling, education and support. While attending outpatient appointments, clients continue to carry on with their day-to-day activities, such as working, school and caring for the family.
- For people with more severe substance use problems, recovery often begins in a detoxification facility. Staff at these facilities work to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which the client is able to undergo the process of alcohol and other drug withdrawal and stabilization. Usually detoxification lasts seven to 10 days. During this time, clients may be required to attend self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and participate in activities held at the facility.
- Detoxification Services are offered at the following centres:
Long-term residential services:
- The next step in recovery for some people may be inpatient services. These programs offer activities similar to those of outpatient services, but on a more structured and intensive basis, with the client actually living at the facility. Programs usually last about four weeks but may run longer depending on individual needs
- Inpatient services are offered at the following centres:
- Many people with substance use problems also require assistance in other life areas. Long-term residential facilities provide services for a more extended period to individuals recovering from chemical dependency and addiction. These facilities offer counselling, education and relapse prevention in a safe and supportive environment. Life skills training, which allows clients to further develop and enhance the skills needed for successfully building recovery, is also an important service offered at such facilities.
