A 3 week intensive day program is available to women who live locally.
Programming takes place at 215 Evans Ave. from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Here, you will join with women from around the Province, to explore your substance use and/or problem gambling in a way that relates to your goals for the future.
You will learn about the impact of your substance use or gambling on your life, your relationships and your health. Every woman will have an individual counselor and take part in a variety of groups that cover themes such as:
- healthy relationships
- managing emotions
- effective communication
- safe coping skills
While many of the groups are integrated to include both substance use and problem gambling issues, others are separate and relate to the unique needs of each. Our residence (Cumberland House) offers a therapeutic environment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During the evening, you will participate in a variety of activities including:
- expressive art
- recreation & leisure
- guided discussions
Day clients in the 3 week program may be interested in attending some of the evening programming at Cumberland House. Please feel free to speak with your counsellor if this might be of interest to you.
