Intensive day treatment, or the Day, Evening, Weekend for Youth (DEWY) program, assists youth 13 to 18 years of age who are working to overcome substance use issues. The goal of the program is to help youth reduce or abstain from substance use through intensive group counselling and activities.

Expect group sessions that are flexible to your needs. Attend the core program from Tuesday to Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Drop-in weeks occur periodically.

You can also expect to learn about personal health and safety, goal setting, personal values, relationships, substance misuse, coping skills and relapse prevention.
