Addiction Treatment Program

HerRecovery offers specifically crafted programming from the bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach, group therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to create a holistic atmosphere of support for women looking to achieve and maintain sobriety. Our programming is created to mimic a daily schedule that our mothers can implement in their lives post-treatment. We aim to create healthy habits and routines to keep our day to day lives manageable
At HerRecovery we understand the load of responsibility a mother carries in her daily life. We also know that mothers who want to achieve and maintain sobriety are more likely to succeed when they have supports in place when they go home. Our programming is built to encourage and instill healthy physical habits with well-rounded nutritional meals and snacks as well as scheduled physical activity throughout the day. Our unique Family Skills session provides participants with an opportunity to talk about the challenges of motherhood in a supportive group. Our program facilitator supports participants to explore new ways to approach the challenges of motherhood in healthy productive ways.

Participants in Alberta will be able to receive a psychiatric assessment and treatment available from addictions expert Dr. Avi Aulakh, MD, FRCOC, DABAM. HerRecovery also offers our alumni lifetime aftercare to support the individuals through our alumni program and peer connections making a positive and permanent change in their lives

Our program is 4, 8 or 12 weeks in length with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) being completed after the fourth week. Participants will receive one-on-one counselling, group therapy, family skills and fellowship meetings (both in-house and in the community). Our program is structured with scheduled times for physical activity like yoga, fitness classes, and outdoor walks as well as recreational programming like gardening and Paint Nights.

Following their successful completion, each participant will receive a Completion Certificate, will have access to our Lifetime Aftercare Program and receive membership in the HerRecovery Alumni Group.
