Our Program

What We Do

The Detox Program

The Detox Program consists of introducing information on substance abuse in a group setting on a daily basis. Factual information is presented through videos and group lectures. Group lectures are designed to assist the client to understand the process of addictions, first steps into recovery and preparation for treatment.

Clients have access to a Case Manager for one-on-ones, referral to further treatment or discussion on any issues they may have. Clients are assisted with discharge planning, relapse prevention and support resources.

Group Sessions attended by clients at Foothills Centre have three main objectives:

  1. Create an understanding of the disease of addiction.
  2. Provide clients with a sense of direction, including available resources outside of detox.
  3. Increase self awareness, esteem, worth and spirituality.

Other Services

Short term relapse prevention is offered to those feeling at risk. This service is for people who have had some length of sobriety or non use but are feeling vulnerable to relapse. Usually a two to three day stay is enough to help a person refocus on their recovery. Individuals may also utilize our services for a mandatory 5 day stay before attending a residential treatment program.

Support services are available on an out-patient basis, past clients or community members may attend group lectures upon request. We also provide, by appointment, support and information to family members going through a crisis within their family unit.
