Aurora Recovery Centre’s (ARC) treatment process consists of a member-first culture and stands on three pillars that reflect our philosophy toward our members’ recovery: HealConnect and Recover. These pillars guide the process in which we heal our members’ minds, bodies and spirits, reconnect them with their true selves and their community, and provide them with the tools they need to recover for life.

Our treatments are holistic and evidence-based through psychological and spiritual principles and practices. We base our treatments on the Twelve Steps philosophy, but understand that some people may want an alternative approach, so we adjust their plan to incorporate a different option.

We base our treatments for mental health disorders on the most advanced medical, psychological and therapeutic protocols. We also conduct a number of adjunctive therapies that support the overall treatment plan of helping our members heal and connect with others in the recovery community.

ARC’s Addiction Treatment Process


Detox & Assessment: Healing at ARC begins with a safe 24/7 medical detox. While a member is in detox we complete addiction, clinical and psychiatric assessments to provide a foundation for their personalized treatment plan with specific goals.

Personalized Treatment: Our expert clinicians ensure our group, individual and adjunctive therapeutic programming is professional, effective and fits with the specific needs of each member.

Case managers become the single point of contact for the member and their family to the interdisciplinary team.

Addiction & clinical counsellors, therapists, family program director, nurse practitioners, doctors, psychiatrists, and member care specialists.

Group Programming: Connection to others in recovery is critical. Members build new healthy relationships within ARC to prepare them for recovery for life. To achieve a strong connection for our members to live in the recovery community, we conduct peer-to-peer group therapies, 12-step meetings, adjunctive therapies and structured activities.
Family Program:  Family engagement plays a key role in the member’s recovery for life. Throughout the treatment process, members and their loved ones learn to overcome the challenges of addiction, set healthy boundaries, rebuild relationships, and integrate the family into the member’s personalized recovery plan. Our weekly Family Group and Intensive Family Program prepare loved ones for their own recovery for life.

Back to Work: When a member leaves treatment, ARC continues to assess and monitor that member and their reintegration into relationships at work, home, and social circles. These transitions can be difficult and ARC’s staff are always available for consultation.
Continuing Care: Every member prepares a comprehensive, evidence-based recovery plan before leaving  ARC. By applying what they learned in treatment, receiving ongoing support from ARC’s staff, participating in continuing care programs, and following the actions established in their continuing recovery plan, alumni members have the tools to maintain their recovery for life.

Family Programming

Our Family Programming starts while members are in treatment. Every Sunday, families visit their loved ones and have a group session. Programming continues for family members after a member completes their program.

Our family program consists of:

  • 18 hours of programming
  • One-on-one counselling session
  • Addresses issues that families face with their loved one’s addiction
  • Available to families who have someone at our centre/about to leave

*Family Programming is also available to families not attending Aurora inpatient centre.
