What we can do for your recovery
Our Society Services
At New Blossom, we offer comprehensive person centered addiction treatment programs in a safe, caring environment. Our intensive Primary Care residential substance abuse treatment program (90 days) provides around-the-clock counselling and support from our team of certified drug and alcohol addiction specialists, all of whom have experience of addiction and recovery.
Empower Your Future
We believe that complete abstinence from alcohol and drugs is the best option for people who’ve crossed the line from heavy use to addiction. With abstinence-based treatment, even those with the most serious of addictions can find not only renewed health and healing, but a truly life changing experience.
Our program uses the 12-step treatment model – proven to make a difference in long-term sobriety. Because addiction affects every aspect of one’s life, our program addresses the complex needs of the entire person and provides the tools needed for healing and recovery. New Blossom is LGBTQ+ friendly and welcomes all members of the community.
Substance abuse affects 1 in 10 Canadians, yet most of us have very little knowledge about this disorder. An important component of recovery from addiction is learning about this chronic yet treatable disease. You’ll gain knowledge and insight into the nature of alcohol and drug addiction and how it’s been affecting you physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. You’ll also learn that real, sustainable recovery from addiction is possible and that your life can be transformed, as the lives of thousands of addicts have been before you.
The stigma surrounding substance abuse can lead to a huge sense of isolation and shame. At New Blossom you’ll find that you are not alone. You’ll attend daily group sessions with others who share your experience, your feelings, and your hopes for the future. Right now you may feel a bit apprehensive about group counselling, but virtually all of our clients have reported that they found this component of treatment to be the most rewarding aspect of the program.
You’ll have addiction services counsellor available. As part of our client-centred approach, we won’t assign you a specific counsellor. You’ll be with the right person and feel comfortable with your one-on-one sessions. All of them are not only addiction experts but also have their own history of alcohol or drug addiction and recovery. They truly understand where you’re at because they’ve been there themselves.
We treat the whole person, because addiction affects you on every level. Your care will be based on a recovery program designed specifically for you. The foundation of our program is 12-step facilitation therapy, which is augmented by a wide range of therapies including cognitive behavioral techniques, reality therapy, person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness principles, and art therapy.
Canada’s National Addiction Treatment Strategy recognizes the immense value of peer support in staying clean and sober. At New Blossom, you’ll be able to experience how this works by attending 12-step meetings both in-house and in the community. This will build on your experience in our group sessions in the larger 12-step recovery community – a vital component of long-term success.
Physical and Mental Health
Proper nutrition and sleep habits usually go by the wayside in active alcohol and drug addiction, but are an essential part of healing. While you’re learning about addiction and about yourself, you’ll eat regular, nutritious, and delicious meals and develop a healthy sleep schedule.
You’ll also have access to comprehensive mental health assessments with our community partners before, during, or after your drug and alcohol abuse recovery. Our counsellors will work with you to provide the supports that will help you maintain your sobriety after leaving treatment.
You’re likely a bit anxious about the idea of entering treatment. Our society is a home, not institution. You’ll quickly feel comfortable in your surroundings, with the staff and with the other clients in residence.
Comprehensive Continuing Care
Any significant life change takes time and practice – and recovery from addiction is no different. Our Continuing Care program provides ongoing support throughout those critical first few months after residential addiction treatment as you begin to practice the tools you’ve learned in Primary Care in your daily life and help you protect your sobriety.
