Set at the beautiful Cowichan Bay, the Discovery Program delivers a therapeutic experience and psychoeducational programs inviting participants to explore topics such as connection, communication skills, self-acceptance, and support. These discussions stimulate ways for people to express and manage their feelings, move beyond resentment, and rebuild trust. In the process of bypassing unhealthy behaviours, participants will establish a foundation on how to rebuild healthy relationships, allowing them to move towards integrity and fulfilment for both themselves and their families.
While the Discovery Program is designed to support families of addiction, it also highlights the importance of creating an individualistic road to recovery. Addiction is not a “one-size fits all” solution and thus, it is important for participants to develop a range of coping mechanisms. Discovery is meant to bring positive change. Whether you have a close relationship with a substance abuser, have experienced trauma, or are looking for ways to cope, this program is for you.
Often times, we believe that we are alone in our struggles. Discovery grants families the opportunity to heal, accept, and grow both individually and as a unit. Throughout this program, participants will embark on a journey of recognition through an association with like-minded individuals. At Cedars, we understand the innate need for connection and the healing that takes place within a community atmosphere. Recovery is a job to be done together, in unison, and will produce a successful outcome.
