While many mental health and substance use treatment facilities focus on individual risk factors and the subsequent effects of mental health and substance use disorders;
at CAfRIC Centre, our program combines a Medical and a Public Health approach in our treatment process.
We understand that mental health illnesses and substance use rarely occur in isolation, but are co-occurring conditions whose risk factors go beyond an individual’s choices and are largely influenced by the social environments in which people grow, learn, work and live.
We therefore take a whole-person, confidential and trauma-informed approach in all our treatment processes right from the
point when a client engages with the program, through discharge. We work with our clients and their family to identify the right community support to ensure clients experience a smooth transition and reintegration back into society.
