Group Name: Jean Tweed Centre – Women’s Day Program

Description: Since its founding, the Centre has evolved and grown to become a leading community-based substance abuse and problem gambling agency for women in Ontario. The Centre offers a wide range of services including residential and day programming; two day programs now exist – one 3 weeks and one 7 weeks for mothers with young children. They also offer out-patient programs including family and trauma counseling, and outreach services in various locations across the city for pregnant and parenting women. Most recently, they have added a second outreach service to women who have mental health and substance use problems as well as involvement in the criminal justice system.

A 3 week intensive day program is available to women who live locally. Here, you will join with women from around the Province, to explore your substance use and/or problem gambling in a way that relates to your goals for the future. You will learn about the impact of your substance use or gambling on your life, your relationships and your health. Every woman will have an individual counselor and take part in a variety of groups that cover themes such as:

  • self-esteem
  • healthy relationships
  • managing emotions
  • effective communication
  • wellness
  • safe coping skills
