Sunrise Centre

A Residential Treatment Program for Adults With Chemical Dependency

Philosophy and Treatment

Sunrise Centre recognizes the progressive nature of chemical dependency and treats alcoholism and other drug dependencies as chronic diseases which, if not treated, will be fatal. Chemical dependence is treatable and the recovery process is ongoing. The program at Sunrise Centre is designed so that residents learn to become responsible for their own actions and recovery. It provides the tools and principles needed for a drug free life.

Treatment components include:

  • Thorough assessment and individual master treatment planning
  • Educational lectures and audio / visual aides
  • Professionally conducted group therapy
  • Individual therapeutic counseling
  • Relapse prevention training
  • Family education
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Aftercare planning
  • Alcoholics Anonymous meetings
  • Narcotics Anonymous meetings

Treatment plans are individually designed according to the assessed needs of each resident. The length-of-stay in the program is determined from these needs and other factors, such as prior use and treatment history.

Each resident will progress through these stages toward their successful program completion.
