Provides medically monitored withdrawal management and group-based support during the day for individuals who have a safe and stable home.
Withdrawal management services provide short-term medical supervision and support to individuals who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms associated with their discontinued use of alcohol/other drugs. Medically supervised withdrawal management is important, as there are some serious health risks for people coming off alcohol/other drugs. Once a person has completed withdrawal, they can enter a treatment program.
Creekside Daytox Program services include:
- Supportive counselling
- Substance use information
- Daily exercise and relaxation sessions
- Referral to other services
- Harm reduction
Adults ages 19 years and older who have a safe and stable home and require a medically monitored withdrawal management support.
Individuals can self-refer by calling 1-888-587-3755, or can be referred by their advocate/surrogate, family doctor or other health care provider, community agency or social worker, with the individual’s consent.
We ask individuals for their BC Services Card (or Care Card), family doctor’s name and current medications list, and can still assist the individual if they do not have this information.
