Female specific Fulltime Attendance Program (FTAP), operates Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, available to adjudicated youth who are struggling with substance use. The FTAP works in partnership with the Elizabeth Fry Society who provide 'care-home' beds in the Kamloops community. This care home model is based on safety, supervision, respect, and support for youth attending the program. The Osprey program uses a holistic approach where all realms of wellness are taken into consideration. We work from a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens to develop treatment plans that reflect individual client needs. The program operates a continuous intake throughout the year and is comprised of a wide range of recreational, educational and therapeutic components. Referrals to the FTAP must come from Youth Probation.
Day Treatment Program operates Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. available to non-adjudicated female youth in the Thompson Cariboo Service Delivery Area (SDA). Referrals for Day Treatment must come from Delegated Agencies (Aboriginal and MCFD).
Family Care Homes are also available for Day Treatment youth who do not have a safe stable home environment or are from outside the Kamloops area. These arrangements will be negotiated through individual service agreements on a case-by-case basis. For further information on the Fee-for-Service Care Homes, please contact Sian Lewis at 250-374-4634.
