Addiction is a disease that affects millions of people across North America. While treatable, the stigma around drug and alcohol addiction prevents many from seeking the help they need. Orchard Recovery provides holistic addiction treatment on beautiful Bowen Island, British Columbia. Our boutique recovery center allows more time and staff dedicated to each participant.
We understand that finding addiction treatment can be overwhelming. Our expert recovery and addiction specialists at Orchard will provide reassurance and compassion throughout your experience.
Our addiction treatment options vary from an introductory 12-day stay through to 28 and 42 days in our Sober Living Residence. Continuing care options are provided in our West Vancouver office and include individual counselling and day treatment with our Addiction counsellors. Not only are our staff skilled, knowledgeable and experienced, they understand where you have been and care about where you are going.
The First Step
Acknowledging and understanding the signs and symptoms of an addiction is the first step to recovery. We understand that the stigma of addiction can make it hard to take the first step, and that is why we are committed to ending the stigma.
At Orchard, we encourage authenticity, personal responsibility and right action. Our goal for our patients is to return them to a state where they can productively function within their family, workplace and community.
Our pre-admission process helps clients and their family members in times of distress. We provide expert guidance to help you feel the most support in making the best choices if you or someone you know are in need of treatment.
We are here to help answer any questions you have about treatment or admission.
Treating addiction is a long-term process that requires continual care. The result of treatment at Orchard Recovery is a personalized treatment plan that provides the strongest base for recovery.
The goal of treatment is to help the individual suffering from addiction refrain from using drugs, to maintain their drug-free lifestyle outside of care, to prepare individuals to enter back into society and to foster a life-long community of support and engagement that allows individuals to incorporate recovery into their daily lives.
With addiction treatment, individuals who suffer from addiction will learn and practice initiatives that will help with overcoming compulsions. At Orchard Recovery we understand that treating a drug addiction is more than just treating physical symptoms, that is why we offer holistic treatments that treat the entire person—mentally, physically, spiritually and socially.
Our program runs on 6 elements of success:
- Trust: We honor that clients have given us their trust to restore their hope and health
- Education: We use a wide range of psycho-educational models to address the psychological, physical and spiritual needs of our clients
- Holistic: Our holistic approach is built on a solid foundation of 12 step philosophy and tradition
