St. Francis Farm Detox and Rehabilitation Services

Located on a working Farm, MQI’s Drug-Free Detox & Rehabilitation Centre offers residential programmes aimed at providing detox & drug-free rehabilitation through a unique blend of individual and group therapy, education and practical skills training in a rural farm setting.

The programmes include one-to-one counselling and care planning, group therapy, self-esteem seminars, assertiveness training, anger management, art therapy and relapse prevention training. Service users also receive training in first aid, life skills, and budgeting.

What makes this rehabilitation programme unique is the fact that it is run on a working farm, giving service users the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in animal care and vegetable production. The food produced at the farm is used to supply the kitchens in our various centres, and contributes to feeding up to 300 people every day.

High Park Residential Rehabilitation Programme

This is a 17-week fully residential programme. The aims and objectives are to offer clients a period of residential 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, psycho-educational groups, fitness/gym activities, outdoor pursuits and recreational activities.
