Seven South Street Treatment Centre’s program is a high intensity three month client directed, abstinence based program. The program consists of a three phase approach to facilitate a comprehensive, yet flexible, individual treatment plan.

  • Phase I – Orientation and Educational component

The objective of this phase is to prepare the client for the intensity of Phase II. Phase I is described as the educational component of the program. It includes groups on such topics as; cross addiction, how to get the most out of group therapy, men’s issues in recovery, communication, developing twelve step support, and an introduction to the first four steps of the twelve step program. Phase I also involves the client completing a life history, and maintaining a daily journal. By the end of this phase each client is expected to have achieved specific goals.

  • Phase II – Intensive group sessions

Phase II is the intensive part of the program. The objective of this phase is to dismantle denial, gain personal insights into character defects, to challenge irrational thinking and begin the healing process necessary for recovery. Phase II goals consist of achieving honesty, adherence to the recovery plan, and to learn to self monitor thoughts through rational emotive therapy techniques. In order to assist clients in achieving these objectives, groups such as guilt and shame, depression, anxiety and worry, problem solving, group therapy and many more have been incorporated into this phase.

  • Phase III – Relapse Prevention

Phase III is relapse prevention. The objective of this phase is to prepare a strong relapse prevention plan and discharge plan. It prepares the client for a successful reintegration into the community including employment, school, stable social relationships and post release adjustment. In order to assist the client with this transition a long-term recovery plan is developed and a reasonable discharge plan is prepared. One-on-one counseling is offered during the entire program.


Aftercare is offered once a week. This group is available to clients in residence once they are in their third week of Phase II. The program is also available to graduates of our program as well as anyone in the area who has completed a program.

"...Since he has been at your facility, the change in our son is overwhelming. It is such a pleasure to talk to him now and I'm so looking forward to seeing him in the spring. There were many times when it wasn't very pleasant to be with him and each day I would wonder if this was the day I would find out that he was homeless or worse, that he had died. I want to thank each one of you personally for giving me my son back and I hope you know how much you have healed our whole family..."
