Aventa Centre of Excellence for Women with Addictions

À propos

Our Mission

Mission: To improve the lives of women and their families affected by addiction, mental health, and trauma, through treatment, advocacy and education, in a safe and supportive environment.

Vision: Leader in the treatment of addiction for women in Canada.

Incorporating curriculum materials by Dr. Stephanie Covington, Aventa provides concurrent capable, trauma informed, gender responsive addiction treatment programs to meet the unique needs of women.

Aventa offers priority admission for pregnant women, or women who are at risk and require immediate support and stabilization.

Due to women’s histories of violence and trauma, gender-specific treatment provides a safe opportunity for treatment and recovery. Aventa’s programs place an emphasis on providing an environment that is safe, supportive, and establishes a clear recovery process for women. At Aventa we work every day at breaking the cycle of addiction; our experience has taught us that Healthy Women translate to Healthy Families.

About Aventa Centre of Excellence for Women with Addictions

Aventa’s Recovery Model was developed by Dr. Stephanie Covington, using a trauma-informed approach based on theory, research, and clinical experience. Treatment focuses on the connection between trauma and substance abuse in women’s lives.

Phase II is a 6 week intensive, live-in program that provides therapeutic individual and group counselling. This program focuses on the following four key areas: self, relationships, sexuality and spirituality.

Young Adult Treatment(YAT) is a 90 day live-in program for women 18-24. It includes individual and group counselling, a life skills component, and a Family Counsellor for individual and family sessions.

Phase III is a 3 month live-in program for women who have completed Aventa's Phase II or YAT Program, and require additional treatment to support their recovery. The program offers individual and group counselling with a strong educational and skill building component.

Aventa also provides a continuum of services, which include access to a physician who specializes in addiction medicine, a psychiatrist and nursing staff.
