Scope of Program
The OnGoing Recovery Program is an extension of the Westminster House residential Primary Care Program. It is necessary to provide a full continuum of care to clients seeking an exit to the cycle of addiction.
The OnGoing Recovery Program is focused on long term sustainable recovery. This improves social outcomes for women who have been chronic substance abusers.
Long term recovery has a positive impact on families and communities, reaching the criminal justice system, health care system and social services. The On-Going Recovery Program will bridge the gap between Primary Care treatment and reintegration back into society.
The ongoing recovery component is what brings everything clients learned in their treatment into practical use. When you leave treatment initially it’s different. You’re making decisions on your own, travelling alone and you have to be accountable.
The transition is the key piece for long term recovery. Having somewhere to be accountable to, feel supported, working, and most importantly having a safe environment to utilize. The relapse prevention program allows clients to be solution-focused and look at areas of their life before the physical relapse happens.
Family Support is a resource established to assist family members and friends affected by addiction. Family Support Group provides access to knowledgeable professional staff who offer families assistance and support while their loved ones are in treatment at Westminster House.
Family Group is facilitated at Westminster House every Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The On-Going Recovery Program provides relapse prevention and a continued supportive environment that includes structured programming, and accountability to one’s peers and support group. This will assist in making positive changes to the environment and developing marketable skills to gain meaningful employment.
