North Wind Healing Centre
The North Wind Healing Centre is a residential drug program. It lasts 45 days and can accommodate 10 addicts at the same time. The program addresses the addiction problem from different angles: biological, psychological, social and spiritual. At first, they examine the actual problems brought on by addiction. Then they are brought to look at possible solutions to dealing with addiction and life. Then they develop a pro-active plan to help themselves live better. Then they get help by the staff to look for a job and a career so that they can build a life after the program.
