The Rehabilitation and Recovery Program is operated by Coast Mental Health.
It is a provincial resource providing specialized Tier 4 treatment services for BC adults (19 years of age or older) who have completed treatment at the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction or the Heartwood Centre for Women who may benefit from continued treatment and additional support services as they transition back to their home communities.
Clients access this program on a voluntary basis and receive the skills and support necessary to achieve a successful return and integration into their home communities.
The program’s framework is philosophically consistent with the principles of psychosocial rehabilitation including trauma-informed and culturally sensitive care and reflects best practices in mental health and addiction treatment.
The program offers a wide variety of professional support to meet each client’s needs. Programs are based on individual rehabilitation and recovery care planning for each person coming into the R&R program.
While in the program, clients will stay in close contact with their home health authority case manager to discuss progress and make plans for their return to their home communities.
The Rehabilitation and Recovery Program will not accept clients who:
- are under 19 years of age
- are not medically stable
- have been involved in fire or arson offenses
- have not completed treatment at either the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction or the Heartwood Treatment Centre.
