What is the Centre for Wholeness & Well Being
Intentional Day Recovery Program?























The  Intentional Day Recovery Program (IDRP) is a 12 week program run over 3 months. It is designed for people who are looking for holistic addiction recovery in a day program format because they are not able or do not need to be away from home or work for an extended period attending a residential program. The Intentional Day Recovery Program is designed to be part of continuing care and holistic substance abuse recovery rather than a stand-alone program. 


Anyone age 18 and older can refer themselves to the Intentional Day Recovery Program. The Program is suitable for anyone with addiction and provides treatment for all substance dependence (alcohol, cannabis, other drugs including prescription medication, etc.) as well as problem behaviors (gambling, sex, food, relationships, internet, etc.). Applicants will be required to have already completed the comprehensive assessment at Centre for Wholeness & Well Being to qualify for the Intentional Day Recovery Program.
