Foothills Centre For Change Residential Review

Foothills Centre For Change is an upscale residential treatment facility that specializes in the care of men and women struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders. A five hour drive northeast of Vancouver in the small city of Salmon Arm, British Columbia, Foothills Centre For Change offers a curriculum of care that includes a 30, 60, 90 residential component, medical detox, PHP, family retreats and aftercare. The facility offers a bio-psycho-social approach that integrates an array of therapeutic methods for a completely individualized experience. The 12-step recovery is an integral component to the programming. Residents with co-occurring disorders have access to medication management.

Accommodations and Staff

The Foothills residence is a beautiful two-story home that boasts panoramic views of the surrounding scenic landscape. The facility provides a supportive and safe environment ideal for individuals beginning their recovery journey. There are accommodations for between six and ten residents. Consequently, clients enjoy a tight-knit community and receive a lot of personal attention. While private rooms are available for an extra fee, most residents share a bedroom with a peer. The bedrooms are spacious and have two twin-sized beds, basic furnishings, plenty of natural light and an ensuite bathroom. Foothills also maintains a fitness center and a sauna.

Residents enjoy a health and delicious menu that an on-site chef prepares. The chef can make accommodations for clients with dietary restrictions and preferences.

Treatment and Staff

Unlike many treatment facilities, clients at Foothills transition immediately into a medical detox program to cleanse the body of all toxins. Detox includes medical supervision and medication to curb uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Upon completion, individuals undergo a comprehensive intake assessment that determines the most effective personalized treatment strategy tailored to address the unique needs, goals and circumstances of the individual. Soon after beginning residential care, clients meet with a case manager to create an aftercare plan. Foothills understands that the length of care depends on the needs of the individual. As a result, the facility offers 30 day, 60 day and 90 day options.

Foothills Centre For Change fosters a holistic treatment curriculum that synchronizes a range of therapeutic methods. This includes evidence-based models, 12-step recovery, life coaching, psychoeducation and recreational activities. Clients engage in individual and group therapy rooted in CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). The facility offers psychoeducation classes that focus on addiction as a disease as well as a relapse prevention system. Clients also participate in 12- step support meetings.

The Foothills Centre For Change team has counselors, life coaches, psychiatric nurses, physicians, a massage therapist, a Chinese medicine practitioner and an on-site chef. Residents meet with a physician on a weekly basis. 


Clients also participate in an array of holistic practices like yoga, meditation and acupuncture in addition to recreational activities like tennis, hiking, badminton, cross-country skiing and swimming.

The facility provides extensive aftercare support for clients that have completed the program. Aftercare includes weekly phone calls and check-in’s for six months. There is also an active alumni group and sober living accommodations.

Finally, Foothills also offers a unique family retreat program.

In Summary

Above all, Foothills Centre For Change is a top notch residential treatment facility that also has plenty of step-down options so individuals can ease into a life in recovery. Residents enjoy upscale accommodations, a four-to-one client-to-staff ratio and an integrative curriculum.
