Mental Health & Addictions Redevelopment Project

Social Housing: Addictions Transition Care Facility


The province of PEI requires increased space for intensive addictions day programming. This intensive programming is necessary to support individuals who have completed a withdrawal management process and have some recovery experience and existing positive community connections.


Applying the Community First Model, the Social Housing: Addictions Transition Facility unit is a 24 space (including 12 residential accommodation spaces) gender-inclusive, three-week intensive day treatment program for adults age 19 years and older. It is designed for people who desire to achieve sustainable abstinence and overall wellbeing.

As part of the addictions treatment strategy, this program is the highest intensity level. The program focuses on internal processing as well as the exploration of the root causes of addiction. This service will acknowledge and honour diverse cultural, social, and gender backgrounds and experiences.
