Services Offered:

Brief Detox Unit (BDU):

 The Brief Detox Unit (DBU) is a 12 bed unit which provides a safe place to stay for a short period of time to rest and recover from intoxication or drug abuse.

The BDU is an alternative to overnight incarceration or admission to emergency rooms for intoxicated people who do not require emergency care.

The BDU is an opportunity for brief intervention where clients are monitored (vital sign/observed) for approximately 12 hours by an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).  Addiction counselling support is also available.

Following a brief stay in the BDU, clients may choose to attend the Social Detox Unit to enter a recovery focused program.
