    adolescent-programYouth gain information by learning and doing; from frequently conveyed stores of peer experiences, personal anecdotes, metaphors and/or analogies. This learning style is interactive and not boring. Clients hear successful and unsuccessful stories about recovery and relate as they see them unfolding in their daily lives.

    In this social model program, clients share meals, space, recreation, chores, group treatment and celebrations. In the course of living as a recovery community clients are presented with opportunities to modify their approaches to living, problem solving and communication and alter their addictive behaviours.

    Clients find solutions to living situations using peer support and can conquer historic self defeating patterns. In practical terms, clients learn to confront challenging situations while taking responsibility for the choices made.

    Youth become active in community affairs, school and our long running successful alumni group. Though participation in a community context, clients are able to keep recovery and prevention issues on their agendas.
