The Recovery Support (formerly referred to as, ‘Aftercare’) and A New Beginning: Women’s Program are scheduled for introduction during Summer and Fall 2016.
The partnership will result in the implementation of programs available at the KFHT specific to recovery support (recovery and co-dependency recovery support), women’s health and addiction treatment.
“It is important we continually assess our performance and undertake review of programs and services available within the communities we serve, and to the extent possible, respond to gaps in service delivery through development or formalization of, strategic partnerships to ensure our patients receive the best care, as close to home as possible,” said KFHT chief executive officer Gerry Glover.
Westover Treatment Centre is an abstinence-based residential treatment facility for those with an addiction to alcohol and other substances.
Through the delivery of programs and services designed to respond to the patient in a holistic manner, Westover Treatment Centre also provides co-dependency and family programs.
“We are pleased to embark on this initiative with the Kincardine Family Health Team and the benefit to the community will be seen for years to come,” said Ron Elliott, executive director of Westover Treatment Centre.
Access to the Kincardine Family Health Team is at no cost to the patient.
Members of the KFHT work in collaboration with your primary care provider to provide comprehensive healthcare services.
For more information call 519-396-2700 or your primary care provider for further information or referral.
