What We Do:
The Mental Health and Addiction Day Program includes intensive group therapy, brief transitional case management, auricular acupuncture, individual and family supportive counselling as needed.
The Mental Health and Addiction Day Program consists of groups offered at RVH Monday to Friday.
The Mental Health and Addiction Day Program serves as a step down from inpatient care as an alternative to hospital admission for clients presenting to the Emergency Department or referred by the community. Clients transition from the Mental Health and Addiction Day Program, when necessary, to traditional community services where they may continue to see a psychiatrist or clinician for a period of time. Care is managed by an inter-professional treatment team.
Individuals may attend the Mental Health and Addiction Day Program for up to 8 weeks.
Each Client is assisgned a Primary Clinician who:
• Coordinates the client's Recovery Plan
• Coordinates and conducts discharge planning
• Conducts individual counselling when needed (limited)
• Conducts family/social support counselling when needed
