Looking to kick-start your recovery? Watershed offers detox to recovery, all under the same roof!

The Watershed four-six week residential rehabilitation program (which includes Case Management and a treatment/early intervention plan) has been developed by experts to counter the effects of problematic substance use and to give clients the best chance at long-term recovery.

Watershed rehabilitation provides 24-hour support and supervision for clients who must have completed a detox (either at Watershed or another facility) before entering the program.

Individual attention is critical, so every client is assigned to a primary caseworker on admission, ensuring that they receive valuable one-on-one time and that treatment is constantly monitored and adjusted as required to meet their unique needs.

We are committed to each client’s recovery and support them to develop the strength and courage in order to complete rehabilitation.

The rehabilitation program includes Group Therapy and Individual Therapy and Casework, all embedded in the Watershed Healthy Lifestyle Program.

Therapeutic Group Program

  • Relapse Prevention.
  • Anger Management.
  • Conflict Resolution.
  • Healthy Relationships.
  • Promoting Self-esteem.
  • Understanding Addiction.
Health Promotion and Harm Prevention Program

Provides regular and structured education sessions on HIV, Hepatitis C, STDs, Heroin Overdose, Nutrition, Relapse Prevention, Art Therapy & Tai Chi.

Case Management

Assessment of a client’s individual needs and the development of a personal care plan that focuses on treatment, advocacy and referral to other services (medical, psychiatric, health and social).

Self-Help Program

Introduction to social support networks such as Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, Smart Recovery and other identified support groups.

Rehabilitation from substance use can be gruelling – from both a physical and psychological perspective. Getting in shape with regular exercise and using meditation and relaxation techniques can better prepare clients to take on the rigours of the treatment day. The Watershed rehabilitation program offers:

  • Tai Chi.
  • Exercise.
  • Meditation & Relaxation.
  • Art Therapy.
  • Gardening.
Continuing Care Program

On completion of the Watershed rehabilitation program clients may be eligible to access the Transitional Living Program (Carinya). This a supported accommodation program that has an educational and living skills focus designed to help continue the successful progression toward independent living.
