Quick Glossary of Residential Treatment Terms
Faith-based - programs with religious component (typically Christian). Prayer, scripture reading, or church attendance to may be required. Note that Salvation Army programs do not typically require religious participation in order to access services.
Native Treatment - programs funded by the federal (NNADAP) or the provincial government for Canadians who are of First Nation or Metis descent. Most native residential treatment programs are, however, open to the general public.
Primary Treatment - intensive program with individual and group therapy and trained counsellors. Length of stay can be up to 90 days but is typically 28 to 42 days. Primary treatment usually follows medical detox and can be followed by support recovery. Another term for primary treatment is inpatient treatment (typically in a hospital setting).
Secular - non-religious
Support Recovery - for people who have completed primary treatment but require a greater level of support than what is available at home. In support recovery, the amount of time allocated to actual therapy, level of supervision, and qualifications of staff varies but is generally less than primary treatment. There is some counselling but minimal. Lengths of stay are typically longer than 90 days and can be up to a year or longer. Some support recovery programs allow (or expect) clients to work or attend school, while some do not.
Youth Treatment - typically for individuals 13 to 18 years of age but may accept clients up to the age of 25.
READ THIS FIRST! A referral from a government-funded outpatient clinic or a physician is required prior to admission to a government-funded residential treatment facility. Therefore, please refer to the Saskatchewan outpatient section for a government outpatient clinic in your home community. Private residential treatment, however, does not typically require a referral prior to admission so contacting those programs directly is recommended.

YOUTH RESIDENTIAL SERVICES
Since April 1, 2006 the provincial government has legislated for involuntary detoxification and stabilization of youth 12-17 years of age in a facility for that purpose through a detoxification order by two physicians for a period up to five days, with the
possibility of an extension for a maximum of two additional five-day periods. Involuntary detoxification/stabilization serves as a measure of last resort for parents, legal guardians and judges when it is determined that a youth's substance use has damaged their decision-making ability to the point they present a risk to their own safety or the safety of others. For more information visit the Youth Drug Detoxification and Stabilization Act of Saskatchewan section of the Government of Saskatchewan website.
