Our addiction programs for women are not separate. These co-ed groups appeal to those women who feel comfortable in groups with men or who want to learn to be more comfortable with them. If being in a group with mixed gender is a concern, or if it would prevent you from being able to be open about your issues in group, we would recommend that you go to a women’s only treatment center such as Amethyst. (See link).

Youth who are 18 years or older may best be treated in the Adult Program if this appears to be a good fit. Criteria we look for would be your level of independence. If you are married or living on your own and financially independent from your parents, you could be suitable for the Adult Program. If you are still living at home and receiving financial support, you may instead be better off being served in the Youth Program. The Intake counsellor can help you sort this out.
