Waiting is arguably one of the most difficult challenges when accessing addiction resources. We strongly encourage all women who are waitlisted to keep their place secure by calling in weekly, and as much as possible, to not be discouraged by their wait time: the time is passing with each day.

Wait times for each of our programs average 4 - 12 weeks, but may be longer or shorter depending on availability and other variables.  All women who are waiting for admission to our programs are strongly encouraged to:

  • attend regular support groups and/or meetings
  • secure a Sponsor for continued and ongoing support
  • secure / attend regular Addictions Counselling for continued and ongoing support
  • use all available resources to stay safe and clean until their admission can be scheduled (ie: the "Helpful Resources" menu to the right of this screen); this could include other support-recovery facilities.

In preparation for their residence in our programs, and with the support of counsellors or other service providers, women applying from outside the Metro Vancouver region are strongly encouraged to contact and if possible secure an Addictions Counsellor in Vancouver, as well as any other local resources that will support their individual needs.

 

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."  ~ E. Nightingale
