Addictions Services/Withdrawal Management Centre
Substance abuse is a growing concern for Canadians. Millions of Canadians consume alcohol and it’s disturbing that according to Health Canada’s Canadian Addiction Survey, 18.4% of women and 30.2% of men reported that they experienced harm from their own alcohol use. Addiction to illegal drugs is not easy to gauge but it is estimated to be 0.8% of the population. These percentages represent millions of people.
When substance abuse becomes a problem for someone 16 years of age or older, The Salvation Army is there to help. At The Centre of Hope, our Withdrawal Management Centre accepts referrals from individuals and agencies for women and men in our 18 bed unit. We provide exemplary care to clients that are looking to pursue sobriety in a safe and caring environment. We do that through detoxification, provincial assessment and referral to treatment.
We offer 12 Step Programs through NA, CA and AA. We also offer recreational groups and life skills programming, relaxation therapy and other activities such as baking, crafts, sports – and there is alwasy a listening ear provided by our staff.
Although we are a non-medical withdrawal facility, our staff are qualified, competent and experienced in addictions and the management of withdrawl.
If you or someone you know needs help to withdraw from addiction, please call 519-432-7241.
