All people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. At Freedom Quest Regional Youth Services we respect the uniqueness and individuality of every person we serve, working cooperatively with every person in their journey to a healthy life. We approach our services by encompassing the behavioral, physical, spiritual, mental and emotional facets of life and incorporate this philosophy into our program content. The Regional Alcohol & Drug Day Treatment (RADD) program is an intensive alcohol and drug day treatment program designed to serve youth aged 19 and under in the West Kootenay Boundary Area. Throughout the year our facilitators deliver a group counselling program to as many as ten people at a time. The RADD Program delivers a variety of day treatment models based on community or individual needs. The program’s key element is a strong recreation component designed to assist youth in making positive life style changes. Full day recreational outings will be offered throughout the program. Families, peers, and other support persons are encouraged to play an active role in the healing process. Our program is confidential and information will not be released to any one unless the person in question completes a “consent for release of information” form. Follow up/after care services will be arranged with all group participants. Pre-program, post-program, and follow-up evaluations will be completed with all participants to ensure that the program is successfully meeting the needs of all those involved.
