P.S.N.E. has been involved in the Mental Health and Addictions supports for over 25 years. Over the past 2 – 3 years we have seen an increase in our services to individuals who need Addictions assistance.
Elgin County has an and sometimes the need is huge creating a wait time to access or an individual doesn’t want to.
Kelli is a certified Addictions Councilor who has been with the Organization part time for just under a year providing a group called P.A.S.S. short for Peer Support & Addiction Support Service.
This service has been expanded because P.S.N.E. and Kelli found a lot of our current Members do not want a group model. Reasonings we have heard: Can’t trust people to not tell what’s said, uncomfortable speaking in front of others, people report to other services what they hear.
