Foothills Centre is a medically supported, adult Detox Program located in southern Alberta. We are dedicated to providing an environment in which clients can safely withdraw from substance abuse.
Any male, female or transgender individual who is requiring detoxification from alcohol and/or drugs and is over 18 years of age.
The Detox Program consists of introducing information on substance abuse in a group setting on a daily basis. Factual information is presented through videos and group lectures. Group lectures are designed to assist the client to understand the process of addictions, first steps into recovery and preparation for treatment.
Clients have access to a Case Manager for one-on-ones, referral to further treatment or discussion on any issues they may have. Clients are assisted with discharge planning, relapse prevention and support resources.
Group Sessions attended by clients at Foothills Centre have three main objectives:
- Create an understanding of the disease of addiction.
- Provide clients with a sense of direction, including available resources outside of detox.
- Increase self awareness, esteem, worth and spirituality.
