Why Aurora?

What Sets Us Apart

Aurora Recovery Centre’s philosophies are consistently reflected in the way we value and relate to our members. Everything we do is in the interest of their success in recovery for life. We value our connection with members as long-term, supportive relationships.

Client, customer or patient connections are short-term transactional relationships. Recovery for life is relational, not transactional.

We are dedicated to providing world-class care to the members participating in, or who have completed, their personalized treatment program, and we do so by remaining loyal to our four cornerstones of care:

These four cornerstones guide how we provide our treatment care to members while the pillars of our treatment process guide what we do.

Our Member-First Culture means our members care is the most important thing in everything we do and our staff does all they can to support our members’ recovery work through the heal, connect and recover pillars. Personalized Care is necessary as each individual is unique, with their own special needs to solve their addiction and mental health disorders. Personalized treatment plans are prepared from comprehensive medical, clinical and mental health assessments with specific goals to monitor their progression. Aurora has one of the only full 24/7 Medical Detox units in Canada and provides the safest and most comfortable withdrawal possible. Healing begins in detox to prepare the member for the rigors of the treatment process. Our World-Class Facilities are the gold-standard for residential treatment centres in Canada, offering serene lake views, surrounded by woodlands, spacious accommodations and amenities supportive to recovery.

Member-First Culture

From initial contact with Aurora, and all the way through to Continuing Care, members and their loved ones experience our caring, compassionate and considerate staff going above and beyond to serve the member’s needs. On average, there are approximately 10 hours of staff time per member per day reflecting our commitment to serve our members needs better than any other centre. We foster a culture where our members feel understood, valued and empowered to take an active role in their own recovery. They learn to remain motivated to heal from the pain of addiction and/or mental illness and to address underlying issues so that they may continue to lead happy, fulfilling lives in recovery for life. 

Personalized Care is necessary as each individual is unique, with their own special needs to solve their addiction and mental health disorders. For that reason, we meet each member where they are and personalize all of our members’ treatments to ensure they succeed in their personal recovery.

To execute a truly personalized treatment plan, we provide 10 different member groups; each member has both a clinical and addiction counsellor for weekly one-on-one counselling sessions; traditional and specialized trauma therapies and psychiatric consults with a nurse practitioner and/or psychiatrist, if needed; at least 10 adjunctive therapies; nutrition planning; special dietary needs; traditional teachings; family programming; and special outings. It is only with Aurora’s size and scope, that we can offer this breadth of treatment protocols under one roof to find the best fit for each individual member. Read more.

Aurora Recovery Centre is one of the only treatment facilities in Canada with an on-site 24/7 medical detox unit. Medical detoxification is the safest and most comfortable means of withdrawal from active substance addiction. It is also an essential first step in the journey to recovery by healing the body and clearing the mind. The member’s time in detox is utilized to perform comprehensive medical, clinical and mental health assessments, from which the Personalized Treatment Plan is prepared. The four to five-day average period members are in detox prepares staff on how to connect with new members most effectively, to ease their transition into the rigors of implementing their Treatment Plan.  Substance withdrawal is often accompanied by challenging physical and emotional symptoms. Read more.
