DUI is a charge given for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or other substances. THC content from marijuana intake can impair a person just as much as alcohol and drugs.
Our program is an educational course that helps you recognize, learn about, and stop unhealthy behaviours through therapeutic counselling.
We help our clients learn coping skills and create new healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle.
Substance use and alcohol abuse harm our body and our ability to concentrate, focus and make the right decisions.
The mindset that “he/she is okay to drive” when the person drinks or uses any kind of drugs, may cause more problems than the “inconvenience” of calling a taxi but the outcome of driving under the influence can potentially cost your life or the life of others.
Domestic abuse, otherwise known as domestic violence, is another punishable behaviour by Canadian Law.
Abuse is defined by certain controlling behaviours in intimate relationships such as marriage, and couples living together.
There are many forms of abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, verbal assault, and psychological. Many cases of domestic abuse are not reported. But any action that is intended to blame, intimidate, hurt, humiliate, or frighten, the partner falls into domestic abuse.
Research has shown that there is more domestic abuse inside relationships where substance use and abuse are present. The abuser uses coercion, threats, isolation, manipulation of parenting and role responsibilities, and other methods to gain authority, power, and “respect” from the victim.
We take domestic violence seriously and the victim’s safety is the main goal. Therefore, our Partner Assault Response Rehabilitation Program (PAR-RP) is designed to help the offenders gain knowledge on the issue as they take responsibility for their actions. Becoming accountable for our actions means taking the right steps to change our behaviour. As well, being responsible is not only shown by accepting and understanding our mistakes, but by making the necessary changes to improve ourselves. Offenders will have the opportunity to reflect on their beliefs and attitudes, learn about respectful communication and learn skills to solve a conflict in non-abusive ways.
