ARC supports and adheres to the principles of “Evidence-Based Practice”. This involves
“making decisions about how to promote health or provide care by integrating the best
available evidence with practitioner expertise and other resources, and with the
characteristics, state, needs, values and preferences of those who will be affected.”
Our group strives to incorporate the best evidence available into our program and provide the most recent tools that are scientifically proven to help individuals struggling with substance use and/or addictive behaviours. We aim to use a variety of methods, tools, and techniques taken from many different areas in the field of addiction and mental health, including those from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and others.
