Vesta is a Tobacco and Scent Free environment    

Our goal is to provide a safe environment with supportive and empowering programming to assist women in achieving their recovery goals.  Vesta offers a continuum of care in an abstinence-based, trauma responsive  setting which incorporates the following elements.

Vesta’s Residential Addictions Program provides the opportunity for a woman to develop a treatment plan to match her individual goals. The acronym RAP is descriptive of how our treatment modules “wrap” around each other to provide Best Practice women centred programming to all of the clients who attend our residential setting.

This integrated programming approach provides an opportunity for women to begin their recovery process in Phase I, which would be a stay of five days. This phase of our treatment program includes intake, orientation and settling-in. Phase II is the five week length of stay, 35 days, which provides group dynamics, education & awareness, individual support counselling, Relapse Prevention I and discharge planning. Imbedded in the residential setting is a comprehensive Life skills program and the Personal Business and Recreation modules. 

During this treatment period, Vesta clients may request to participate in the next phase of our program where she can build on her successes. All women have the opportunity to complete Phase III of our residential program. This phase provides an additional seven weeks of comprehensive programming, including Relapse Prevention II and enhanced discharge planning.

While in Phase III, the women maintain their participation in the Life skills, Personal Business and Recreation modules, increasing their total experiential hours. This extended program is designed to provide opportunities to further practice lifestyle changes and increase the rate of success in preventing relapse.

Women completing Phase II and Phase III components will have completed 12 weeks of treatment programming.
