Osprey offers a 5 day program Monday through Friday to adjudicated youth who have substance use issues. Referrals come via the Ministry for Children and Family Development. This program works in partnership with Elizabeth Fry Society who provides 'care home' beds in the Kamloops community for youth attending the program. The program is based on a holistic model of care where all life domains are taken into consideration. Each youth is considered unique and approaches and treatment plans reflect individual needs. Programs run for both male and female groups throughout the year. A school component is part of regular programming during the school year
At Osprey clients are given unique opportunities to learn more about themselves and the world around them. Programming is flexible and staff are interested in helping clients further develop their interests in pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.
Kamloops BC is a beautiful community in the Thompson Cariboo Region offering an abundance of healthy activities to choose from.
Staff at Osprey want to involve clients in activities that will provide new experiences and build on each client's strengths
