Teen Health offers Youth Addictions Counselling to individuals ages 12-17:
- seeking support to assist them with the challenges of change and recovery.
- to manage substance use behaviours.
- to provide emotional support stemming from the social consequence of addiction for those affected by a loved one’s addiction.
Youth who are experiencing addiction, have experienced addiction in the past, or who have been impacted by a loved one’s addiction are eligible for this program. This includes addiction to substances and behavioural addictions (such as the internet, social media, gaming, etc.).
Our Parent 1-on-1 is a one-time, one-hour, confidential support consultation session with a therapist specializing in addiction treatment. This program aims to address concerns and encourage the family’s next step toward healing and recovery. A self-referral is required.
