In October 2010, MAARS implemented its new PHASE 1 session that provides more immediate access to service. The purpose of Phase 1 is to encourage clients to take further steps in the process of getting help, demystifying the addiction treatment system, to provide clients with take-home strategies to begin to make changes, to discuss treatment philosophies, and to prepare clients for the next step in the assessment. At this session clients are asked to complete some questionnaire related to your substance use.
The PHASE 1 session will run twice per week: on Tuesday mornings and on Thursday afternoons and take about 1 ½ hours (registration required). Following the session, clients will register for a face-to-face assessment with a clinician at MAARS where they will explore their substance use and the range of services and resources that are available.
For further information or to book your PHASE 1 assessment, please call 416-599-1448
