Calgary Zone - Addiction Services - Recovery, Stabilization and Detox Program


Description
Calgary Youth Addiction Services offers a 6 bed, 14 day live - in Recovery, Stabilization & Detox (RSD) program for youth ages 12 - 18 who are experiencing substance use and / or mental health concerns.

The program provides stabilization and psychosocial services as well as preparation for further treatment and transition planning. It follows a social detox model for substance use. It is a highly intentional process of engaging youth and their families into the next phase of their mental health and/or substance use treatment continuum.

The initial phase focuses on safe withdrawal management, self-care, and the establishment of healthy eating and sleeping patterns. Once the client is feeling well enough, they are encouraged to engage in treatment groups, family visits, and recreation and leisure activities. Treatment groups may include coping strategies, emotional regulation, self-esteem, drug information, relapse prevention, defense mechanisms, stages of change and information on accessing further treatment services.

The program utilizes a short-term intervention model that helps youth to look at their major life areas and explore a longer-term treatment plan with their family/supports. Based on their goals and motivation, a plan may include accessing mental health resources, substance use treatment, family support/counselling, as well as accessing resources in the community i.e. leisure, self-help groups, and school.

This program is offered through a contract with Hull Services.
