Options OkanaganOptions Okanagan Review

Options Okanagan of Salmon Arm and Kelowna, British Columbia in Canada offers detox and residential substance abuse treatment facility. Options offers individualized and evidence based programs for adult men and women. Program offerings include group and individual therapy as well as long-term aftercare services, and is rooted in the 12-step philosophy.

Accommodations and Food

Both of the Options residential locations accommodate up to 10 clients at once allowing for treatment to be a personal experience. The Kelowna facility is based in a home-like environment in a quiet neighborhood, while the Salmon Arm location provides apartment-style accommodations in the wooded area of the Schuswap Mountains. The Kelowna house offers private bedrooms and bathrooms, a large, state of the art kitchen, dining room, a washer and dryer and backyard with patios and balconies. There are living rooms and lounge areas in the facility with flat screen TVs and leather couches and chairs for the clients to relax in when there is down time in between treatment. Therapy, meetings rooms and staff offices are also included in the facility. The Salmon Arm residence has more of a rustic feel with the facility nestled in the trees surrounded by nature trails and views of the mountains. This location also offers private bedrooms and bathrooms, elegantly decorated dark wood furniture and several fire places throughout. Both locations are fully furnished and spacious with a cozy atmosphere.

Three healthy meals and snacks are provided daily and prepared by experienced on-site chefs at both locations. The food is made with the finest local ingredients and alternative options that can work with specific allergies are available.

Treatment and Staff

Detox can take up to seven days and is fully supervised 24 hours a day on-site by medical staff. After the process concludes treatment programming is based on the results of a bio-psycho-social assessment that aims to develop a treatment pan to address the physical needs as well as the emotional and mental needs.

Every client can expect daily group therapy sessions and typically one or two individual sessions per week. The treatment is based on the 12-steps and daily on-site AA meetings are required. Therapy methods include CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), EMDR and relapse prevention strategies. There are programs for clients with co-occurring disorders which include medication management services. Optional holistic techniques and methods, including Equine therapy, acupuncture and nutritional counseling, are also offered during treatment.

The staff at Options Okanagan bring many years of experience with addiction and sobriety, with many of the staff being in recovery for many years. The medical and clinical team includes physicians, LCSWs, peer counselors and LADCs.


There are several recreational activities and social outings the clientele participates in frequently, like nature hikes, bowling and golf or boat trips. Fitness and overall well being is also a focus while in treatment so group sports, like soccer or softball, are also offered in addition to weekly instructor-led yoga classes.

Five months of aftercare is offered through options and includes therapy sessions, or if the client doesn’t live in the area there are also phone sessions or connection to a local outpatient treatment facility that is covered by Options. There is also an intensive family program that takes place every six weeks or so an includes education and counseling for clients and their loved ones.

In Summary

Options offer just that—options. There is not one “correct” way to get treatment for addiction and no individual experiences recovery the same way. This facility offers a variety of ways to adapt to a new life in sobriety by showing show great it can be free of drugs and alcohol.
