Adult Addiction Programs

Adult Addiction Programs

The Adult Addiction staff are trained addiction counsellors and program assistants who also have experience and knowledge in a variety of other fields including psychology, social work and nursing. Other members of the multi-disciplinary team include a stress management specialist, spiritual advisor, therapeutic recreationist and trauma specialist. We have access to a consulting physician, psychiatrist and nurse practitioner.

All Adult Addiction Programs promote hope, unity and diversity encompassing humanistic, spiritual and cultural beliefs by respecting differences in age, gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, abilities and religion. This is demonstrated through our priorities for staff training and by inclusion in program planning. Our approach to treatment is holistic, client-centered and based on assessed needs.

The Sister Margaret Smith operates as a member of the Thunder Bay Integrated Addiction System and is part of a flexible community network of social service and health care agencies capable of responding to the spectrum of client's presenting needs. Clients are introduced to self-help groups such as AA, NA and GA which offer meetings on site, in addition to a Native Healing Circle. Linkages are made with other resources such as Community Mental Health, AIDS Thunder Bay, TBDHU, Indian Friendship Centre, TBRHSC, NorWest and Mushkiki Community Health Centres.
