Children's Centre Thunder Bay is part of the U-TURN collaborative along with Sister Margaret Smith Centre and Thunder Bay Counselling Centre. U-TURN provides assessment and treatment services to youth ages 12-18 and their families who are struggling with substance use, as well as social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties.
The purpose of the program is to address mental health and addiction, reduce self and family harm, and create opportunities for healthier outcomes. U-TURN uses a strength-based approach to achieve these goals.
Services are delivered in partnership with other community service providers to ensure that treatment plans are unique to every individual. A typical treatment plan may include individual or group intervention, counselling, skills-development and other community education programs.
