Addiction Services - Adult and Youth Counselling

Community Addiction services are available to individuals across their lifespan dealing with substance use issues.

The focus of intervention is short term recovery. Clinicians help clients generate achievable goals for stabilization and change. Parental involvement is expected for children / youth unless a client is assessed as a mature minor.

Services are available for children, youth, adults and older adults with addiction concerns. Clinicians work with individuals and families to identify goals of treatment as they relate to their moderate to severe addiction concerns.

Addiction Services (clients with alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and / or other drug concerns) may include:

  • assessment
  • treatment
  • referrals to treatment centres
  • short-term outpatient treatment services (includes individual, family and / or group counselling)
