Life is about choices

The Salvation Army will begin a new eight week intensive non-residential treatment program on Monday, Jan. 7.

In April, 2012 the Salvation Army began delivering an eight week intensive non-residential treatment program to help those experiencing the damaging and debilitating effects from substance abuse.

With the exception of the excellent service being provided to families and female youth through the Nenqayni Wellness Centre Society’s Residential Treatment Program there is no other similar service being provided in our region at this time that this writer is aware of.

The need for such a service is great and is available here in Williams Lake.

Our Eight Week Intensive Non-Residential Treatment Program charges a base fee of $30 per day for a total cost of $1,200 for our eight week (40 day) program.

For individuals, businesses and industry the cost effectiveness of this program is apparent when you consider the costs of attending any of the existing residential treatment centre’s within BC.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with this issue and seriously wants to make some positive lifestyle changes make the right choice and give us a call.

Next program begins Monday, Jan. 7, 2013.

If for some reason you are unable to cover the cost of this program we may be able to help.

Treatment Referral Packages can be obtained in person or can be downloaded from our website at
