Alwood provides substance abuse treatment for youth (male & female) ages 16 – 22, through an intensive four month residential program. The program utilizes a strength based, non-judgmental approach respecting diversity.
Our mission is to assist youth with substance abuse issues in achieving their goal of abstinence and developing a healthy lifestyle. This is achieved through a program designed to: prepare youth to return to the community as healthy substance free individuals.
This is done by assisting them in developing a recovery plan. This includes appropriate coping skills, self esteem building, life management training and reduction of high risk behaviours. Plus promote healthy family lifestyles and relationships by assisting families in dealing with the impact of the substance abuse.
Helping them develop coping strategies and strengthen communication patterns. Provide prevention and education to youth and the community as to the consequences of substance abuse. We also familiarise them with community resources.
