It can be daunting to admit for residential treatment but by the time you reach the testimonial ceremony toward the end of the program, and you are ready to leave SPP to re-enter your home environment, you will have experienced the most amazing journey into recovery which clients treasure for the rest of their lives. 

Most of the patients admitted into our facilities are in crisis. Our aim is not only to alleviate the immediate crisis, but also to provide patients the opportunity to change the direction of their lives and to gain new momentum. 

By the time clients, or their families, have reached out for help with their problems there is often a significant crisis, and they are likely to be having difficulty coping with life at home and/or work. Inpatient treatment gives both the client, and their family, the respite needed to manage the crisis, begin treatment and to take those first steps in creating change that with bring hope, health and happiness to your friends and family.

Our Inpatient Program will immerse you in a full and intensive therapeutic program designed to address the problematic behaviours, attitudes and feelings that have led to the current crisis. The structured program offers psychiatric care, 24-hr nursing care, daily group therapy, and comprehensive psycho-education.

The Inpatient Treatment Program, within the group therapy setting, supports you in gaining insights to the problems and the changes needed to get your life back on track effectively and quickly.
