Enviros Shunda Creek provides addiction treatment for young adult males 18-24 years of age by providing intensive adventure based wilderness programming. The 12-week voluntary program addresses substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues that require live-in treatment and support in an isolated environment. Shunda Creek is a 10-bed wilderness based live-in program provided in partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and funded by AHS at no cost to clients. The program is located west of Rocky Mountain House situated at the base of the Brazeau and Shunda Mountain ranges. We are an addiction treatment program and believe that you are here to work on developing new skills to assist you in your addiction recovery and developing a life practice that will support you in living clean and sober.
At Shunda Creek we incorporate wilderness in our treatment program. We camp all year round and get to our destinations by canoe, bike or hiking. Treatment is woven into everything we do and there is intention in all trip plans and activities. Participation in wilderness is mandatory and you are part of trip planning and design to ensure your safety. Treatment group happens daily. Group happens not only in the group room, but as well on trail, at the end of a canoe trip, on a summit or a bike trip destination. A variety of topics and information is covered during your 12 weeks at Shunda Creek.
