Phoenix Addiction Day Program


Phoenix 10 Addiction Recovery Day Group

Duration: 10 weeks open group. Patients can join the group at their convenience

Suits: People who are recovering from addiction and are seeking on-going maintenance support

Overview: The addictions day patient group program is designed to support people who have made a decision to work towards an addiction free life. This group provides a safe and encouraging environment, which allows participants to learn new skills, problem solve challenges and increase understanding of their addiction. The program is skills based, integrating cognitive behavioural relapse prevention skills with mindfulness practices to increase each individual’s ability to cope with life drug/alcohol free. The focus of each session is to increase awareness of triggers and automatic reactions developing a greater sense of choice as to how to respond to situations without substance use. Patient commitment to the program is expected; nonattendance should be noted to the Group Coordinator prior to absence and will be assessed case by case.

Some of the topics covered during the addiction therapy group include:

  • Building and Maintaining Urges

  • Problem Solving
  • Lifestyle Balance
