The Youth and Family Program at Richmond Addiction Services strives to support Richmond families in their experience of and struggles with substance misuse, problem gambling and gaming.

 We offer individual and family counselling, addiction education seminars, support groups as well as the Constructive Alternative to Teen Suspension (CATS) program with the Richmond School District. Our approach is Client-Directed and Outcome-Informed (CDOI), in which we involve youth and family members in the entire process of counselling to attain the most desirable of outcomes. Our program also incorporates alternative approaches such as yoga, meditative practices and ear acupuncture when possible. Please feel free to contact us and find out more how we can support you.  We are also able to make referrals to residential treatment facilities in Vancouver and through out BC.
