When we enter into recovery, we start into an immense challenge. Our behaviour and our actions for the past several months or years have developed deeply engrained habits that take work to break. “You can’t walk 10 miles into the woods and expect to walk 2 miles out”, goes the saying, and that rings especially true for us.

Conscious, consistent work is required to move forward into a greater quality of life. For some it is easier than others, but the process remains the same. We must change our habit of turning to behaviours or substances to soothe our pain, one decision at a time.

Harm Reduction

We focus entirely on limiting and the eventual termination of use, covering:


  • Finding your support network;

  • Sobriety sampling;

  • Discovering your motivations for recovery;

  • Education on both addiction and recovery; 

  • And building a more confident mindset for taking the step to abstinence.

Lifestyle Change

Further along in the journey, we branch into other areas of your life. 

Our goal is to help you live a life that is completely designed by you, for you, through:

  • Building habits, structure, & routine;

  • Living a balanced & intentional life;

  • Relationships, boundaries, trust, & communication;

  • Discovering your core values;

  • And ensuring continued self-care practices.


At this point, we focus on maintenance and consistency, ensuring complacency does not come into play.


We assist in crisis management, ensuring you are supported through life's tests and challenges.


We begin living our lives without the aid of substances or behaviours, focusing intensely on:

  • Relapse prevention planning;

  • Triggers & cravings; 

  • Mastering the fundamentals;

  • Emotional literacy & competence;

  • Increasing self-esteem & self-confidence;

  • And your life narrative.


This phase looks at the bigger picture – the deep sense of purpose and belonging that one needs for long-term recovery. 

Here we spend time on:

  • Your individual purpose;

  • Meaningful work and relationships; 

  • Finding your unique spirituality;

  • Radical acceptance of life and the world around you;

  • Mindfulness-based practices;

  • And long-term goal setting.

Recovery Coaching

If you haven't joined already at this point, we encourage the participation in a cooperative recovery coaching group that takes place on a weekly basis. 

This recovery coaching group, facilitated by Inspire Recovery Addiction Counselling, is both an education-based and open dialogue format, ensuring you remain in a recovery-focused mindset.
