Possibilities Recovery Center (PRC) is a Not-For-Profit and Registered Charity that employs, educates, and develops Addiction and Mental Health Professionals, allowing the delivery of a passionately unique Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program.
PRC believes addiction is a symptom or coping mechanism of some deeper level of pain:
The aim is to treat a person’s pain holistically (mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually), not treat addiction or mental illness symptoms.
Relapse prevention groups will arm clients with the tools needed to continue victory over the temptations to return to old behaviour patterns.
Helping children identify their pain and teaching them tools and coping mechanisms early on can help prevent many issues later in life.
When the four components of life are in balance, the desire to continue using substances or participate in destructive behaviours will dissipate.
Trust and respect are core values of our therapeutic approach:
We believe that a relationship built on trust must be formed between the client and therapist before any part of the healing process can begin.
We recognize that trauma presents itself in many ways to many different people.
Speaking about our traumas is key to healing; however, it makes us vulnerable, so many suppress trauma instead of healing from it.
Our mission within the Indigenous communities is to help facilitate evidence-based healing practices with Indigenous cultural healing practices to uncover pain and trauma and teach productive ways to move forward in growth and development.
The therapeutic approaches we use are:
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT),
Dialectic behavioural therapy (DBT),
Motivational interviewing (MI),
Music therapy, and
