Our addictions treatment approach is based on the therapeutic community model with core self-help principles and individual counselling and case management. We offer a psychologically and physically safe residential program in a positive peer culture environment. We believe that the inherent strengths of our clients are the basis of their recovery. The supportive therapeutic community environment helps clients discover these strengths and is therefore conducive to personal development. The program’s focus builds on the client’s strengths through a process of social learning based competency acquisition. Treatment planning is participatory, with clients setting priorities. It is also inclusive; encouraging participation from both significant others and family members as well as the network of service providers involved. Counselling, case management and individual treatment planning are central to the treatment process. It provides a continuum of care and offers constant support to the residents and their families. The treatment programs consist of a series of social contracts entered into by the individual with the Thorpe community, whereby the individual agrees to discuss the issues that he/she is currently working on. The community provides guidance and encouragement, while supporting the individual’s efforts to meet the obligations that have been set and to achieve his/her goals. We employ a number of therapeutic techniques, including role modeling, a system of upward social mobility, group and individual counselling, along with collaborative treatment planning. We also employ current industry best practices in the context of a residential rehabilitation milieu.
