» Assessments and Detox

The healing process begins
with medical detox.

Aurora is one of the only private treatment facilities in Canada with an on-site 24/7/365 medical detox unit. Nurses complete an initial medical assessment upon a member’s arrival, any time of day or night, initiating a safe detox protocol immediately after consultation with the nurse practitioner. The protocol is also designed to mitigate the discomfort of withdrawal.

Members in detox are assessed in person by a nurse practitioner within 24 hours, and continue to receive around the clock nursing care, as well as receiving a preliminary mental health assessment by our registered psychiatric nurses. The Detox Unit is managed by a Medical Director.

A comprehensive addiction and clinical counselling assessment is completed, and combined with the medical and nursing mental health assessments, to form a personalized treatment plan with specific treatment goals for each member.

Members in detox also receive preliminary treatment programming, combined with good nutrition and a mild exercise regime, to prepare them for the transition to the rigours of treatment.

» Personalized Care

Counselling is one of the most
important aspects of
treatment.

Expert clinicians ensure our group, individual and adjunctive therapeutic programming is professional, effective and tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Each member is assigned two counsellors, one addiction-focused and one clinical. Counsellors may also refer members for more advanced therapy and/or psychiatric consults, if they determine through assessment that this is beneficial to the individual.

Recovery Is a life-long journey and family engagement is critical to a successful and sustainable recovery. Our professional team assesses family dynamics through consultation and family case conferencing, and integrates the family in the member’s personalized recovery plan. Available to all members’ families and loved ones, are Aurora’s weekly Family Group introduction to recovery program, loved one visitation program and an off-site 3-day intensive Family Program .

» Continuing Care

Treatment begins with the
decision to seek help and
continues for the rest of the
members’ lives.

At completion of the Aurora residential treatment program, every member leaves with a comprehensive, personalized recovery plan. This includes members connecting with a temporary sponsor and an Aurora alumni member (ARC Buddy), and to having safe, appropriate housing arrangements prior to leaving.

Members are also encouraged to join the ARC Squad, Aurora’s alumni network and community outreach program and access professional continuing care programs through ARC Counselling and/or individual counselling and other resources in their local communities.
