There are several components to our treatment services: individual counselling, group counselling, and intensive programming. As the first step, women meet with a counsellor for an assessment. During this phase, women work with the counsellor to explore their history of use and/or gambling within the context of their life. The assessment offers the opportunity to determine whether or not Amethyst is the right fit and which components of service the woman will access. As no two women are the same, neither will their experiences be in recovery. As a result, Amethyst works to help women determine how she will best meet her recovery goals.
Treatment services may be accessed for approximately two years. In addition to the above noted components, clients – where appropriate and when available – may also access various follow-up programs, including:
- Relapse Prevention
- Family Dynamics
- Art Days
- Sexual Abuse Support Program
We also have specialized services in order to provide support for women who are pregnant, parenting, and/or involved with the Children’s Aid Society.
