Things to consider if you are interested …
Want to find out more?
Are you willing to abstain from alcohol and drug use for the duration of the program? It’s an intensive program that will take commitment to see it through
You will need stable accommodation for the duration of the program. If you’re worried about where you are going to stay for the night, it will be hard for you to commit to the program
If you are currently struggling with your mental health, we may need to talk to you and your doctor/mental health worker about whether the program is right for you and what additional supports you may need to participate
