Purpose and Philosophy
We understand that overcoming the tragedy
of addiction is a great commitment.
Our purpose is to help people heal from the chronic disease of addiction and mental health disorders, stay clean and sober and maintain healthy relationships so that they become active in recovery for life.
Aurora’s treatment process is built upon a member-first culture and stands on three pillars that reflect our philosophy toward our members’ recovery: Heal, Connect and Recover. These pillars guide the process in which we heal our members’ minds, bodies and spirits, reconnect them with their true selves and their community and provide them with the tools they need to recover for life.
At Aurora, we recognize that people are unique, as are their current life situations. Effective treatment of addiction and mental health disorders demands a flexible, not a one-size-fits-all structure. We build a wide variety of group and individual programming and tailor it to best serve the individual member’s needs, rather than expecting individuals to fit into a rigid and narrow program structure.
We believe in the disease concept of addiction and its co-existing mental health disorders. At Aurora Recovery Centre, treatments are holistic and evidence-based biopsychosocial and spiritual principles and practices. Addiction is a human condition with a spiritual solution. Our addiction treatment is primarily based on 12 step philosophy, which has helped millions of people successfully recover from addiction for more than 80 years around the world. However, 12-step philosophy does not work for everyone and for that reason, we have a variety of alternative approaches for those resistant to 12-step.
The primary treatments for mental health disorders are based on the most advanced medical, psychological and therapeutic protocols available. We also utilize a number of adjunctive therapies that support the overall treatment plan of helping members heal and connect with others for recovery for life. Our members’ experiences are our first priority, and we believe they deserve the most advanced treatment protocols.
We care for our members in a nurturing manner. We support, guide, lead and care for them but do not enable them or others. We treat our staff and members with respect and honour and value their contributions to our community. We invest in the continuing growth, development and nurturing of our staff. Aurora’s team exemplifies our Purpose, Principles, and Philosophies within and outside of our community.
Aurora Recovery Centre’s philosophies are consistently reflected in the way we value our members and staff. Everything we do is in the interest of our members’ recovery for life.
