Minimum standards of care for residential addictions treatment
Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is leading the development of provincial minimum standards of care in residential addictions treatment centres for adult and youth populations.
Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is a First Nations mental health and addictions organization that will lead a consensus-building and Indigenous distinctions-based process to develop minimum standards of care through engagement with stakeholder groups and Indigenous communities in Alberta. Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is working in partnership with Métis Nation of Alberta who will support the development of the standards through various contracted services, including but not limited to the engagement of Métis peoples in Alberta. Together, we will create standards that are evidence-based and culturally safe for all Albertans seeking residential treatment services for addictions.
If you have had any experiences with residential addictions treatment centres in Alberta, we would love your input! We are hoping for input from anyone with experiences related to residential treatment standards of care, including people with lived experiences, as well as family members of those with lived experiences, residential treatment care providers, community services and supports, academics, researchers and government representatives.
The survey is anonymous and will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete and will be used to inform the development of the minimum standards of care for residential addictions treatment in Alberta.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the online survey!
