Intensive Outpatient Program

Your life doesn’t have to stop to start recovery

At Armour Addiction Services we understand that many individuals seeking recovery have loved ones, careers, and responsibilities. We also know that you do not have to hit rock bottom to seek help for addiction. You can start your healing path today, without having to abandon these aspects of your life.

Accessible addiction recovery solutions close to home

Our Intensive Outpatient Program in Victoria, British Columbia is designed for individuals who wish to take action to live a life free from the grips of substance abuse and addiction without having to break the bank.

We believe addiction should be looked at as a whole and treat clients with a wide range of addictive behaviors including but not limited to, alcoholism, drug addiction, sex addiction, pornography addiction, and disordered eating.

We offer various programs – To suite your individual needs

We believe addiction treatment should not be a one size fits all model. Everyone is on their own unique journey and require different levels of care. Below you will find 4 different outpatient recovery programs designed to fit your lifestyle and recovery needs.

The 12-Step program is not included in any of our curriculums. Our staff is well versed in the available Community Support Programs (such as Smart Recovery, LifeRing and 12-Step). If requested, we are available to help facilitate our clients to integrate these programs into their recovery plans.

We concentrate on psycho-education, behavior change, and trauma therapy.
