Drug and alcohol use may become problematic when it impacts your health and quality of life. UBC HR has partnered with Boreal Wellness Centres to offer Resilient Living™ Recovery, a non-12 step, mindfulness-based addiction treatment program to help reduce or stop problematic substance use.
The program is available for staff, faculty members, and their dependents who are experiencing mild to moderate problematic substance use. Resilient Living™ Recovery uses a values or strength-based approach to develop healthier coping skills and increase resiliency. It consists of 10 weekly group therapy sessions delivered through a secure video conferencing platform. You will never be placed in a group therapy session with another UBC faculty, staff or their dependent.
Confidential referrals (funded through the pilot program) and self-referrals (reimbursable through extended health benefits) are currently accepted. Learn more
If you are a manager or a supervisor and you think an employee may be struggling with problematic substance use, please encourage them to contact their RTW Advisor (Vancouver), WRAP (Okanagan), or self-refer through Boreal website.
