Concurrent Addictions Inpatient Treatment Service (CAITS)

An addictions and concurrent disorder treatment service for adults with moderate to severe dependency with alcohol and/or drugs. We provide both inpatient and outpatient programming in a three phase approach. We provide mixed gender, women only, cocaine specific and African and/or Caribbean descent programming.

Phase 1 (support and stabilization group) – offered weekly (twice weekly for the women and cocaine groups).This group focuses on increasing motivation for change and prepares clients for Phase 2.

Phase 2 (intensive programming)- offered as a three week inpatient or day program, or a 12 week outpatient group (women only) that meets twice weekly. During this time, interdisciplinary staff offer psychoeducational, relapse prevention and group therapy sessions. The focus is on problem identification, coping, skills development and maintaining a healthy lifestyle within a harm reduction framework.

Phase 3 (continuing care group) – offered weekly up to a year. Upon completion of Phase 2 this group supports recovery and community integration.
