Ashnola at The Crossing

Ashnola, a PCRS and BCMHSUS program, is a Provincial Tier 4 program that supports youth and young adults ages 17-24, all genders, who are in need of residential programming for substance use concerns.

Ashnola is a client-centred program with an average length of stay from 3-6 months based on individualized client goals and treatment plans. The program is able to support youth and young adults with concurrent disorders.

Ashnola at The Crossing is expected to open in early 2017.  Regional Health Authority Leads and Health Authority Liaisons will be notified when the admission schedule is finalized. BCMHSUS will continue to provide interim solutions to youth who require residential treatment for substance use until the facility opens.

Please find the program's information package here.
