Intake Process & Referral Form

New Roads Therapeutic Recovery Community (TRC) is a positive, peer-led treatment environment that encourages appropriate behaviour through reinforcement and accountability. The practice and rehearsal of appropriate social interaction and interpersonal skills within a safe, supportive atmosphere allows residents to discover new attitudes, values, and ultimately a new way of life.

The referral process is as follows

  1. Intake/Discharge Coordinator will receive a referral form.
  2. Intake/Discharge Coordinator will make an appointment to conduct a screening and assessment to determine treatment readiness.
  3. After the screening and intake assessment, the Intake/Discharge Coordinator will consult with the New Roads TRC Clinical team. The Intake and Discharge Coordinator will contact the referral source to let them know the outcome of the screening.
  4. New Roads TRC staff will pick the client up directly from the site where they were referred (i.e., VIRCC, Island Health, or other arrangement as discussed with Intake Coordinator).

Please note: All applicants need to be detoxed prior to intake. Intake/Discharge Coordinator will assist applicant with referral to Detox.
