"Turning Lives Around"


While a residential treatment option may be ideal for some, at Watershed we understand that a live in program is not always practical for everyone at any time. Perhaps you have other commitments such as children or work that make it difficult to stay in a residential program. Perhaps you aren't ready for a live in program, or are on a waiting list for a residential treatment bed and need help and support while you wait.


Whatever the reason, you can still recieve Watershed treatment through its day program.


Free Service Progams


Watershed's eight week day program (which includes Group Work, Case Management and Counselling) has been developed by experts to counter the effects of substance abuse and to give our clients the best chance to beat addiction in a non-residential setting.

This program is designed for those who are not yet ready for residential rehabilitation, are currently waiting on admission to a residential service, have other work and family commitments, are exiting correctional services or may have existing legal issues in relation to Drug or Alcohol misuse (such as probation and parole, MERIT, Court System) or are currently on a pharmacotherapy treatment program ( such as methadone, buprenorphine or suboxone treatment) and wish to access additional drug and alcohol support - perhaps with a view to reducing dependance on these substances.

Individual attention is critical, so every client is assigned to a primary caseworker on intake, ensuring that they recieve valuable one-on-one time and that an individual treatment plan is developed that meets their unique needs.


*Fee* for Service Programs


Regular, on-going one-on-one counselling services are available by appointment.
