Youth Support Services

Substance use can become part of a powerful identity people rely on to feel good about themselves and connected to others. Substance misuse is a means to cope with unpleasant feelings and emotions.

Ray of Hope Youth Support Services (YSS) helps young people and their families find healthy long-term coping solutions that empowers them to build wholistic futures.  Over time, any coping activity (i.e. substance use, screen time, social media) can become problematic depending how it influences your brain’s chemistry. 

YSS is here to help those seeking to heal, improve, and recover from the negative impact of problematic addictive behaviours.  All programs require an initial assessment that can be arranged by requesting services.   

All of our service providers operate from a strength based, client centered, forward thinking, trauma informed, approach.

Residential Treatment

Substances are often not the problem. They are often a solution to cope. Residential Treatment provides an opportunity for young men to spend some time away from substances to allow their brain to begin a healing process and for each individual to start working on new coping strategies.

You are invited to join a therapeutic community where you can build relationships with staff and other participants where everyone is cared for and cared about.  In turn, you can start rebuilding a relationship with your family/loved ones and yourself.
