Mission Services’ addiction programs empower men and women to live healthy and fulfilling lives while working toward recovery.
Addiction affects our friends, coworkers, family, loved ones, and communities. It can be one of the hardest things a person will do, and when combined with unemployment, poverty, or homelessness, recovery can feel next to impossible.
But Recovery is Possible
Mission Services’ caring, professional staff help men and women rebuild their lives by supporting each person along a continuum of care. We help clients rebuild their lives by offering support with housing needs, employment goals, and strengthening social or family relationships – all with the aim of finding a path to recovery with confidence and dignity.
“This is the safest place I’ve been to. The staff have faith in me and support me all the way. I can do this now.”
Three things that make our addiction programs unique:
- Community Treatment
Our programs are geared toward helping people achieve their recovery goals while living and working in the community. Most of our programs are outpatient programs. We offer flexible hours in the day and evening for individuals who need to continue working while furthering their recovery.
- Harm Reduction Supports
Harm Reduction Support Workers provide onsite support and education to people who have goals of making changes around their substance use.
- Housing Supports
Basic housing needs can stand in the way of the best attempts at recovery. Across our programs we provide addiction and mental health support, intensive case management and housing support for male-identifying individuals in recovery who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness.
“From the deepest recesses of my soul, thank you so much. I’ve been sober for 22 months, and this is as good as life gets.”
Paths to Recovery
At Suntrac Wellness Centre, individuals 19 or older find compassion and companionship in group sessions offered either during the day or evening. This flexibility is designed to support their personal recovery goal, while ensuring employment isn’t sacrificed along the way. Mission Services’ professional, compassionate staff help individuals identify triggers while living in the community and realizing their recovery. Learn more about Suntrac by clicking here.
Partners in Recovery
Care and support from loved ones is vital to recovery. Family members and friends can help loved ones by learning about the recovery process and how they can support their loved one’s goals in a caring, informed, compassionate way.
Aftercare supports people who are already on a path to recovery. Group sessions focus on relapse prevention and maintaining recovery goals while fostering personal growth.
Harm Reduction Support Services
Mission Services is committed to providing Harm Reduction supports to people who are using our emergency shelters and drop-in centers. Harm Reduction Workers are onsite and are able to offer support, education, and information to assist people in making healthier choices relating to substance use. Our staff can also assist by connecting people to other community resources and supports that can assist them with addiction, mental health, housing, and physical health goals.
Addiction Supportive Housing (ASH)
Our Addiction Supportive Housing team provides case management and support to men 19 years of age or older who are struggling with problematic substance use and are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The ASH program is client-driven and goal directed, with the aim of meeting our clients where they’re at in their recovery journey. We support our clients’ recovery and help them transition into independence by offering long-term housing, life skills development and intensive case management.
Addiction Services offers hope and support to Men, Women, and families who have been impacted by addiction. We provide evidence-based, and flexible program opportunities that can assist people throughout their journey to recovery. Our trauma informed approach helps us to understand the whole of an individual who seeks our services. We strive to assist people in meeting their goals and building skills and capacity. We use a strengths-based, holistic, person centred approach to meet the needs of our service users with compassion, empathy, and dignity, and hold the belief that all people are capable of making positive changes in their lives.
