Long-term interventions provide a greater opportunity for success. The Residential Program is not only a physical barrier from substances, it is an opportunity to adjust to social norms often lost in active addiction, like punctuality, accountability, and tidiness. This teaches by taking care of the little things, bigger things are more manageable.
Throughout the 42+ days, the individual participates in recreation, lectures, assignments, chores, group therapy and individual sessions with their primary counsellor. These six weeks are challenging and allows the individual to understand the root of their addictive behaviour and build a recovery toolkit. If deemed necessary by the client, counsellor, and referring body, the program length can be extended to upwards of 90 days.
