St. Joseph’s Addiction Treatment Centre is home to a diverse group of knowledgeable, highly-trained and compassionate individuals from varying professional and educational backgrounds.
At St. Joseph’s, our approach is invitational rather than confrontational. We foster connections and establish trust with our patients by being transparent and involving them in their own individualized treatment process. At St. Joseph’s Addiction Treatment Centre we pride ourselves on our ability to carry individuals from detox, right through the addiction recovery process and into post acute continuing care in the individual’s home community.
Due to the current methamphetamine crisis in Saskatchewan,we have dedicated fifteen of our treatment beds to people seeking recovering from crystal meth addiction, while five spaces are available to people seeking treatment for other forms of substance use.
