How we do it


1. Intake and screening : We verify if the individual meets the agency's criteria and gather the information needed to open a file and program.


2. Assessment and referrals : We use the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs-Q3 (GAIN-Q3) to create the GAIN Q3 Recommendation & Referral Summary (Q3RRS) which is needed to refer clients to treatment centres.

These tools evaluate:​

  • School & work problems;

  • Physical health;

  • Sources of stress;

  • Risk behaviours and trauma;

  • Mental health;

  • Substance use information;

  • Crime and violence;

  • Life satisfaction and

  • Barriers to treatment

3. Treatment planning : In this process, we select and discuss the appropriate level and intensity of treatment with our clients. By working in collaboration with our clients, we are able to identify the right resources and programs that are appropriate for their needs. Whether we decide to coordinate our services with other agencies, offer individual or group counselling, or refer our clients to other services such as residential treatment, we are there to help every step of the way.


Everyone is different, that is why we work with our clients to design a unique treatment plan that works for them.

We are here to help!
