Women’s After Care

It is our objective to help prevent the return of the client to substance abuse and to help her rebuild her life with dignity and respect, through a long-term aftercare program designed to help women recovering from substance abuse.

Through individual counselling, aftercare group therapy, and life skills programs, we explore the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual approach to recovery with the woman, to assist her in achieving long-term sobriety and to encourage her to become an independent, self-sustaining, contributing member of the community.

Emotional stability is experienced by learning new coping skills and strategies in daily living, enhancing interpersonal relationship skills, and upgrading living skills, such as budgeting, and time management.
