We offer a voluntary, ten-week, live-in, treatment program for youth in British Columbia, aged 13-18 years (inclusive), experiencing problems with drugs, including alcohol. Our program is located in Vancouver, operated by Pacific Youth and Family Services Society, and funded by Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.
The first two weeks of the program, referred to as the Assessment Phase, are designed to provide a safe, less intensive environment where youth and staff can assess the youth’s readiness to participate fully in the highly structured, intensive, eight-week treatment and aftercare phase. After the assessment phase, a therapeutic plan is developed to outline treatment goals and a welcoming ceremony is held.
Peak House does not offer detox services — as such, we ask that clients abstain from substance use for a minimum of seven days prior to entering the program.
We are accountable to clients, and with one another, for inclusive practices regarding gender/gender expression, race, sexuality, culture, abilities or social class.
