With facilities in Gimli and Winnipeg, small cities in the Canadian province of Manitoba, Aurora Recovery Centre is a wide-ranging behavioral health facility founded in 2015. It offers treatment to clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Programming is 12-step oriented and includes individualized treatment planning as necessary. While Aurora also offers a variety of less intensive outpatient plans, residential treatment is also available for clients in need of more intensive care.
Accommodations and Food
All told, Aurora Recovery Centre is a 45,000 square foot campus with 70 residential beds and 14 detox beds. The facility is vast and modern, with clients staying in comfortable shared rooms with full beds, armoires, desks and dressers—some rooms also overlook an on-site lake. In addition to the bedrooms, the residence also has therapy rooms, shared common areas with cable TV and an on-site Olympic pool and fitness facility. Clients are served three meals a day cafeteria-style with the help of on-site nutritionists and chefs.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, clients go through an initial bio-psycho-social assessment and screening to help staff members determine their needs. As mentioned, on-site detox services are available with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and medical supervision as necessary. Once stabilized, clients attend full days of therapy with plans typically lasting between 30 and 90 days.
In any case, treatment consists of both individual and group therapy utilizing evidence-based treatment practices including CBT, DBT and EMDR. In addition to these methods, treatment plans also include holistic services including acupuncture and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Though each program may differ somewhat, groups cover many issues including coping skills, family issues, 12-step recovery, dual diagnosis issues, trigger identification and relapse prevention.
The staff at Aurora Recovery Centre consists of psychologists, LMFTs, LCSWs, doctors, RNs, case managers and additional Master’s-level clinicians.
Other specialized services include three-day family workshops and longer six-week family treatment programs designed to give support to family members of clients who are currently in care. The three-day workshop includes 18 hours of educational groups and one individual session whereas the six-week program features weekly three-hour groups with individual counseling as well. As mentioned, outpatient treatment plans are also offered in various intensities. Those who complete primary care can also work with staff members to develop stepped down aftercare plans.
In all, Aurora Recovery Centre is a broad, state-of-the-art organization that offers many programs for clients in early recovery. Treatment plans include evidence-based care, 12-step integration, dual diagnosis support and holistic approaches as well. Programs are individualized to suit each client’s needs and the staff are diverse and well-qualified. Though the cost may vary by insurance and length of stay, Aurora Recovery Centre remains a strong program for clients in the area.
