Withdrawal Management

The Withdrawal Management Program is a 5 to 10 day residential social detox program. The program has 5 beds available in a relaxing setting where clients can start their journey to recovery. While in the program, clients have the opportunity to work with staff on recovery skills, treatment applications, and integrating back into the community. The program staff consists of an Addictions Worker, a Withdrawal Management Nurse, and House Staff.

We provide service to adults age 18 or older that are living in the Mount Waddington Region who are looking to start the road to recovery.

Prospective clients can access the service through one of the following ways:

  • Self-referral by calling the Port Hardy Mental Health & Substance Use office, (250) 902-6051
  • Referred by a Family or Community-Based Physician
  • Referred by a Community-Based Worker or Organization

Admissions into the Withdrawal Management Program take place on Monday to Friday in the mornings. Admissions are not completed on a crisis basis. Once a referral is received a member of the withdrawal management team will be in contact to arrange an intake appointment to discuss suitability for the program. An appointment with a Physician will be required before entering the program. This will be arranged by the staff at the withdrawal management appointment. People completing a medical withdrawal in acute care can be referred for a more fulsome withdrawal management process.

This program is funded by Island Health
