Harm Reduction Support
Men & Women’s
Latin translation of Greek word agap, meaning “an unlimited loving kindness to all others”
Caritas is a non-medical facility. We do not have any medical staff on site but do facilitate clients to self-administer medication with supervision.
During this healing process, a person’s actions, reactions, and decision-making abilities remain distorted, but continue to improve as time goes on. Our philosophy is that recovery involves both psychoeducation and experiential therapy.
Like other Therapeutic Communities, we integrate spirituality rather than religion. We believe addiction and other major life problems must be interpreted within a holistic, multidimensional framework. Therefore, we address life in its entirety: the body (bio-medical), mind (psychological), skills (social), and emotions (spiritual).
Admission is voluntary. Anyone seeking recovery is welcome but must join our weekly Inquiry Group where we provide more information about Caritas treatment, and an understanding of why they might need help. Admission is based on assessment following attendance of the Inquiry Group.
