Addictions Withdrawal Management

Program Description

Our Community Withdrawal Management Services (CWMS) program provides professional, non-medical counselling services to clients experiencing substance dependence, who have a goal of abstinence. Our trained professionals help you create a safe withdrawal plan. Participation in this program is voluntary. You do not need a referral. It’s free and it’s confidential.

The process involves screening, assessing, planning and monitoring withdrawal symptoms for individuals who may experience mild-moderate withdrawal symptoms when substance use is discontinued. Clients, who are at risk of more severe withdrawal symptoms based on physical health and substance use factors, may be referred to an alternate level of care in preparation for a safe withdrawal.

The CWMS program offers:
Assessment and referral;
Individual counselling;
Psycho-education to minimize the risk of withdrawal;
Safe and collaborative withdrawal planning;
Monitoring of withdrawal symptoms;
Privacy and confidentiality during the withdrawal process;
Internal or external referrals for aftercare support.
