Primary Treatment Phase

If the counsellor and the group facilitator assesses that the client could benefit from a longer period of time in Orientation, the client will be able to attend the psycho-educational sessions without attending the process group sessions, continuing with the Pre-Treatment group sessions. The team will then decide with the client when it is best for him to join the process group.

Clients have the same counsellor and will be able to attend instructions (psycho-educational sessions of 2-2.5 hours), group sessions (process groups) and recreational programming.

We are doing on-site meetings: AA, NA, CODA, SMART, Life-Ring. No clients are allowed to external meetings at this time.

Cost & Applying

If you (or someone you know) are interested in coming to Pacifica the following information will help you with the process.

As you probably already know, recovery is not an easy journey, and each person has to find their own way through. Some individuals struggle with complex and difficult challenges that they will need to deal with in order to be able to get some solid clean time. Sometimes the hardest part is getting the hope that there are answers that will really work. It’s hard to do the work without hope that it will pay off.

It’s important to remember that Pacifica is just one possible step in the journey to recovery, and without support and guidance and the right timing, it won’t be a magic answer. However, when things are in place and the time is right, we can be a fantastic boost in the right direction.

Clients can be referred to Pacifica by four different types of people:

  • Outpatient alcohol and drug counsellors (call 211 for the clinic nearest to you)
  • Addiction physicians
  • Detox counsellors
  • EAP counsellors

Most people are referred by an outpatient counsellor and, for most clients, it makes a lot of sense to have someone like that to work with for a number of months before coming into our program. The outpatient counsellor can support you in getting access to the resources you need to help deal with any outstanding issues in order to create a little more stability in your life. The counsellor can also assess your readiness for treatment, and support you in getting the kind of treatment that really fits your needs. The counsellor can also help sort out funding issues for treatment in some cases. Outpatient counselling is offered free both to people dealing with addiction and those who are in a relationship with an addict.
