High Park Residential Rehabilitation Programme
This is a 14-week fully residential programme. The aims and objectives are to offer clients a period of residential rehabilitation treatment in a drug and alcohol-free environment.
The 13-bed High Park residential rehabilitation programme seeks to accept service users who might not otherwise engage in drug-free treatment such as prisoners, homeless and female drug users. The emphasis is on assisting service users to gain insight into the issues that underpin their drug use and developing realistic measures to prevent relapse and remain drug- free. The programme offers individual care plans, one-to- one counselling, group therapy, psychoeducational groups, fitness-gym activities, outdoor pursuits, and recreational activities. Our High Park facility also offers weekly NA meetings.
