Our Services

We provides free counselling services to youth, adults, couples and families dealing with their own or someone else's substance use problem. If you are a new client or returning to our Agency after three months since your last appointment, click on the INTAKE FORM button top right hand corner to complete our On-line Client Intake Form. You may also complete an intake form in our office or request fax or email copy be sent to you. Once received, we'll contact you from the nearest office within 2-3 business days to book a future appointment. If you are an existing client (session within last three months) and want to book an appointment, connect with an office near you.

In addition, we assist with referral to approved residential treatment and detox facilities in BC, hold weekly Methadone and Suboxone Clinic, offer harm reduction supplies and education, facilitate school and community educational programs, and offer our youth Teen Empowerment and Mastery Program (TEAM) and Rock Solid program. Please contact an office near you for further information.
