Clients are immersed in a combination of the 12 steps, group therapy, one on one counseling, cognitive behavioural therapy, accountability groups, and hands on experience in community service through our Street Reach program.
Clients have access to support staff and clinical counsellors who are trained to help with issues unique to the LGBTQ community.
In addition to the clinical treatment offered at Alliance, our clients will also be introduced to a wide range of therapeutic and social programming that includes: yoga, meditation, reiki, acupuncture, art therapy, self-development classes, outdoor physical fitness activities, nightly 12 step meetings, and weekly field trips. As nutrition is a key component to early recovery, we employ a red seal chef who prepares healthy, delicious, and inspired meals.
The environment serves as an ideal forum for discussion and contemplation. Meditative practices are incorporated as a form of self-reflection and decompression.
The program aims to address recovery from addiction and strives to dig deeper into the issues that some men experience with their sexuality before and after treatment.
As clients progress they will be offered the opportunity to explore and discuss important themes and topics that are crucial to long-term sobriety such as:
- Family Dynamics
- Community Service
- Twelve Step Programming
- Grief and Loss
- Financial Literacy
