We know how intimidating and scary it can be coming through our doors. The good news is you’re no longer alone. You’ve got a team of experts and professionals behind you, and we’re here to help make your intake smooth and as easy as possible.

You’ll meet and begin to build trust with your dedicated counsellor, who will be your constant source of contact and information for your entire stay with us. They’ll help make your process through this initial stage easier.
