Local addiction treatment program, Quintin Warner House, and the Toronto East General Hospital Withdrawal Management Centre (TEGH-WMC) launched a bi-weekly after care program at the Toronto location.
Connie Spurria, Communications and PR Manager of Mission Services of London, said they partnered with a Toronto facility because many graduates from the program live in the GTA. She added aftercare programs help individuals live positive lives.
“They can continue to grow and develop in ways that they want to and to achieve their goals and stay on track,” she said.
Aftercare programs can prevent people from entering relapse. Spurria said certain triggers in a person’s life could lead to relapse, along with feeling unsure and distant, while craving some form of connection.
The meetings will take place from 7-8 p.m. at the TEGH-WMC.
Quintin Warner House is a treatment home, offering four-month intensive treatment programs and continuum for men 18 years of age and over.
