The Intensive Treatment Program combines functions of an inpatient withdrawal management (detox) and structured treatment, providing the support of a team-based approach. We match the program’s intensity and duration with an individual’s needs and provide a shared-care approach focused on engaging with each client’s circle of care and circle of support from admission to discharge.
Clients can enter the program needing withdrawal management or structured treatment programming and can receive both during their stay based on individual care plans.
The Intensive Treatment Program focuses on the strengths of our clients and communities. We serve clients across Nova Scotia who do not have access to supports and services that meet their needs close to home.
