What should I expect when I get to SRWC?
Once you have booked an initial appointment with us you will be met in reception by our Intake Counsellor who will guide you through our intake process. Before you begin a program with us you will be given an orientation to SRWC and your Program Counsellor will meet you in reception on the day of your first group session.
Do you offer housing/is SRWC a residential rehab?
SRWC does not provide residential treatment or rehab services. Our programs can help you prepare for treatment and rehab and give you support after you have been through a treatment program. We can also help you find and access these services. Visit our Resources page for links to local residential services or call us to discuss your needs so we can help find the most appropriate service for you.
What kind of addiction recovery does SRWC support?
We only work with substance addiction (i.e. drugs and alcohol). If you are experiencing a process addiction (such as food, sex, gambling, internet use) and are seeking treatment, please visit our Resources page where you will find the contact details for other people who can help.
How do I refer someone to SRWC?
Call us. You will be connected to our receptionist who can book an appointment or direct your call to our Intake Counsellor who will provide guidance on the most appropriate services for your client or someone you care about.
Please note that in the case of family members, we cannot book appointments on behalf of someone who needs help – they must contact us themselves. You can give them our contact information or encourage them to take a look at our programs.
My family member or friend’s use of drugs or alcohol is affecting my life. Where can I get help?
Our Family Program can help you. Contact us to discuss your needs with our Intake Counsellor. We are always happy to answer your questions about how you or someone you care about can get help and support.
Do I have to take time off work to attend an SRWC program?
Not always. A number of our program groups do meet in the day, but our Evening Recovery program meets three evenings a week. If you are in recovery and are employed or studying, this program could be the right fit for you. Find out more about it here or contact us to discuss your needs.
My employee may have a drug or alcohol problem. Where can I find help?
Our Evening Recovery could be the right fit for them. You can find out more about it here or give us a call. We are always happy to answer your questions.
Please note, if you would like an employee to attend one of our programs, they must contact us themselves to make an appointment with our Intake Counsellor.

What do you mean by “spirituality”?
The journey towards recovery from the effects of addiction means healing of the body, mind and spirit. We believe that personal spirituality is one of many areas that are included in well-balanced living, along with physical health, family relationships, future prospects, social life and recreation, and financial stability.
