Below are some of the guidelines around accessing the Healing Centre:
Both residential treatment and detoxification services are available for individuals 18+.
Medically Supervised Withdrawal Management Services-
This is a 24/7/365 service with bed access from 7am-7pm by calling (807) 274-7373.
*NOTE: Referrals can be accepted for this program but in order for an individual to successfully hold a bed/be accepted, we MUST speak to them directly (phone etc.)
before arriving at the treatment centre. If we are given a referral, we will attempt to make contact with the interested participant to ensure they are suitable to attend. This is a medically-supervised detox facility which means there may be cases in which the individual is too high of risk to admit. In these cases, we will ensure that the client is taking the SAFEST and most appropriate route for care.
If a bed is not available, our RPN/Case Managers can refer individuals to another facility or waitlist for the next available bed. Our beds are gender specific, so our wait listing process and priority care will ensure that there is an equal balance of men and women utilizing this service throughout the year.
There is no admissions package that needs to be complete for individuals being admitted into the WMS Program. This is why we speak to clients directly on the phone—they will complete a brief screening and assessment which will ensure eligibility.
Residential Treatment Services- Co-ed Treatment Program
This is a single point of entry for access—interested individuals (or referrers) should make contact with our intake coordinator, Stephanie Simpson, firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone @ (807) 271-0194. Our admissions process includes completing a detailed admissions package. Potential clients can fill this out on their own, with community member/family assistance or with our Intake Worker… its whatever the individual prefers. Once completed and suitability is ensured, our intake worker will meet with client to complete a pre-admissions interview to determine suitability and eligibility.
After the admissions package is completed, potential clients will participate in an intake interview to help in ensuring we are the best fit for the clients needs.
You can find our admissions package, FAQ, Pre-admissions Checklist, Consent to Release/Obtain and Medical form and annual treatment calendar schedule on our website, Facebook page (link) and can be emailed/faxed as needed.
We understand that frustrations of waitlists and ask for your patience through this process. Waitlisted individuals will be asked to stay in contact regularly (minimally once per week) to ensure readiness and establish a relationship with our Intake Coordinator. Should you no longer be interested or get services at another agency, please have contact us to remove your name from the list.
