Residential Treatment - Addictions

Program Description

This is an 18-day residential program. The women's residential experience can be either a blend of the co-educational and the women's specific content or exclusively women's program content only, as determined by the client. There is a separate courtyard and separate living space for women. Program focuses on stabilization, education, skill development, health promotion, and aftercare planning. Activities include process groups, workshops, individual counselling, smoking cessation counselling and recreation. Programming relevant to women's interests is available.

Access Information

The MOH-approved standardized assessments are provided in-house (not for every client, but can be to expedite admission). Referrals to our residential services are accepted from drug and alcohol treatment providers. New Port Centre does not accept self-referrals. There are other forms of assessment, beyond the MOH-approved standardized assessment tools required to access this program. A treatment provider should complete a New Port Centre Intake package (available online at www.niagarahealth.on.ca/site/mental-health-addictions) and forward it to our intake department. This package includes: Intake Form, Medical Profile Form, Consent Form, Legal History Form, and Admissions Information. The Medical Profile Form must be completed by a primary care provider or can be arranged by one of two nurse practitioners to reduce barriers, and detail all prescription and non-prescription medication (including vitamins) that the person plans to take when in residential treatment. We expect people attending residential treatment to be neither under the influence of non-prescribed drugs or alcohol, nor experiencing any withdrawal symptoms. New Port does not accept clients with pending charges of a violent nature.
