Therapy treatments include, but may not be limited to:
- 12-step work
- Group fellowship meetings
- Rapid IV treatment
- Nutritional guidance
- Stress management
- Art therapy
- Well-being treatments (massage, walks)
The treatment team includes a licenced and certified psychiatrist to provide appropriate medical care. The facility is staffed 24 hours a day, including a domiciliary staff that provides for all of the housekeeping and cooking needs. The facility’s well-balanced menu can be tailored to individual nutritional needs.
Best Suited For
This is a facility best suited to individuals interested in a patient-centred approach that focuses on total well-being rather than just physical detox. It is a facility ideally situated for those who prefer the seaside environment to an inland property. It is also a good choice for clients who prefer to have meals cooked for them along with nutritional guidance for the future.
