Creekside Withdrawal Management Center


Clients are medically supervised on a 24-hour basis at the Creekside Withdrawal Management Centre.

Withdrawal management services provide short-term medical supervision and support to individuals who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms associated with their discontinued use of alcohol/other drugs.

Once a person has completed withdrawal, they can enter a treatment program.

  • Supportive counselling
