FAMILY PROGRAMS:

A) Intensive Family Program (IFP)

Substance Use Disorders and other addictive illnesses harm the addict’s life directly. What is often misunderstood, is the troubling effects of addiction on family members and/or significant others. Our Intensive Family Program (IFP) provides structured outpatient assistance for adults affected by a loved one’s addictive condition.

The purpose of the IFP is to help loved ones of addicts by educating participants about the disease of addiction and the ways in which loved ones are affected, and providing a new set of tools to live a full and happy life whether the addict is using or not. The IFP setting is conducive for thoughtful, respectful and caring interaction and feedback. The programming is facilitated by skilled professional addiction and family counsellors and/or therapists.

The time-limited structure of the IFP involves extensive group programming over a three-day period as follows:

  • Thursdays: 1pm to 6pm
  • Fridays: 9am to 5pm
  • Saturdays: 9am to 2pm

Prior to the IFP group programming, participants will meet with an Aurora counsellor to complete an Orientation Session, either in person or by video conference.

The IFP content includes psychoeducational activities in conjunction with the processing of concepts related to addictive illness, attachment, detachment, enabling, self-care, 12-step philosophies, family/relational dynamics, codependency/ACOA issues, self-defeating patterns in relationships, coping strategies and Stage I/II Recovery concepts. Through the process, participants work through the chaos in their lives, learn to set healthy boundaries and rebuild relationships.

Upon completion, each IFP participant will have a follow up one-on-one counselling session to reinforce concepts and tools and to help with any challenges encountered since completion of the program. IFP participants who desire additional individual, group, couples or family counselling with Aurora’s counsellors, therapists or programs, may do so at an additional cost.
All graduates of Aurora Recovery Centre’s Treatment Programs are invited to attend ourContinuing Care Group on Wednesday evenings (6:00pm — 7:15pm) at no charge.

B) Outpatient Family Program (OFP)

Chemical Dependency and other addictive illnesses are highly treatable problems, although often difficult and confusing to understand not only for the addicted individual, but also for their family members and/or significant others. The Outpatient Family Program (OFP) is offered to help the loved ones of chemically dependent individuals through educating and processing about the effects of the disease of addiction as, well as providing a new set of tools to live a full and happy life (whether the addict in their life has embraced recovery or not).

The OFP consists of 12 weeks of a weekly 3-hour group therapy session on Monday evenings from 6pm to 9pm. Prior to the OFP programming, individuals will meet with an Aurora counsellor to complete an Intake and Orientation session, either in-person or by video conference.

OFP sessions will cover a wide array of topics and information such as:

  • Understanding and defining addiction and recovery for both, addicts and the loved ones of addicts
  • Stage I and Stage II recovery concepts
  • Bio-psycho-social and spiritual health issues with chemical addiction and recovery
  • Healthy versus unhealthy coping and communication strategies within relationships and the family
  • Self-care, boundaries and maintaining balance within one’s family and relationships
  • 12 step education (relative to Al-Anon / Alcoholics Anonymous / Narcotics Anonymous philosophies)
  • Codependency and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) issues
  • Self-defeating patterns in relationships
  • Shame, guilt, anger, sadness, grief and loss, regret
  • Understanding relapse and relapse prevention issues for both, addicts and the loved ones of addicts

Through the OFP process, participants will work through the chaos in their lives, learn to have new, healthier boundaries for self-care, and, how to approach rebuilding relationships from the impact of addictive illness.

Upon completion, each OFP participant will have a follow-up individual counselling session to reinforce concepts and tools, and, to address any challenges they may have encountered since completing the group sessions. OFP participants who desire additional individual, group, couples and/or family counselling with Aurora’s counsellors, therapists or programs, may do so at an additional cost.

The OFP setting is conducive for thoughtful, respectful, caring interaction and feedback. The program services are facilitated by skilled professional addiction counselors and family therapists.

SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS PROGRAMS:

A) Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Abstinence Based Treatment (Co-Occurring Capable)

Aurora’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for adults with Substance Use Disorders with the desire to discontinue use and live a clean and sober life but who may not wish to or be able to participate in residential treatment programs such as those offered at the Aurora Recovery Centre (ARC). Clients must be abstinent, or on managed taper programs to become abstinent, to participate. Medically managed inpatient detox treatment is available at ARC for assistance with a safe withdrawal from all substances and preparation for participation in group programming.

The IOP Program provides a safe, professional and confidential setting where the client comprehensively addresses the physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual issues that underlie addictions. The IOP Program is “Co-Occurring Capable,” facilitated by a multidisciplinary team of experienced clinicians skilled at helping clients that may have mental health issues interrelated with their Substance Use Disorder.

The process begins with a formal assessment resulting in specific individualized treatment plans and goals. IOP programming consists of three group therapy sessions and one individual counselling session per week over twelve weeks. Program duration can be greater or less than twelve weeks depending on the needs of the individual client. Clients are encouraged to invite a spouse or significant other adult to attend one weekly group therapy session on Monday evenings throughout IOP programming. Additional individual, couples and/or family counseling programs and services are also available.

The IOP Group Therapy Sessions are conducted as follows:

Monday: 6:00pm — 9:00pm (with spouse or significant other when possible)
Tuesday: 6:00pm — 8:00pm
Thursday: 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Group programming includes didactic and educational presentations as well as “process oriented” group therapy sessions. Written goal work, bibliotherapy tasks and 12 step assignments are often required, including in-session and take home tasks. The identification and modification of self-defeating patterns that contributed to developing a substance use disorder and interrelated relationship problems are an important part of a client’s IOP treatment planning. Significant IOP Program time is devoted to addressing issues involving ‘feelings and coping’ relative to relapse prevention and stabilization in early recovery, incorporating new and healthy strategies and tools to effectively understand, manage and express one’s feelings. Addressing unresolved family and/or relationship difficulties can be a significant component of IOP Treatment to help clients prevent relapse and increase connectivity with others. Random breathalyzer analysis and/or urinalysis testing will be a part of maintaining accountability and preventing relapse while in the IOP Program.

Following successful completion of the IOP Program, clients are encouraged to utilize individual, couples and/or family counselling and therapy services. All graduates of Aurora Recovery Centre’s Treatment Programs are invited to attend our Continuing Care Group on Wednesday evenings (6:00pm — 7:15pm) at no charge.
