Construction Industry Rehabilitation Plan is currently undergoing an extensive redesign. The program is expanding the service previously offered to its members to include comprehensive assessments, individual counselling, day programming and residential treatment. We are moving towards a model that seeks to address the core underlying issues of addiction, applying tried and tested psychological models to help our clients achieve a life free from the pain and suffering that substance use brings. The new program is based on the latest scientific research, delivered by highly qualified Masters level counsellors.
- Addiction is a complex but treatable disease affecting brain function and behavior.
- Effective treatment attends to the multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug use.
- Successful treatment involves identifying and treating both the addiction and the co-occurring mental health issues.
Job Security - Your time receiving treatment with the plan will be treated just the same as any other time off due to illness. Your rights to time off are protected under provincial law.
Income During Your Stay - Whilst receiving treatment you may be entitled to benefits such as Employment Insurance, Sick Benefits or other benefits specific to your union benefits plan. Contact your shop steward for more information.
Referrals to the program can be made either directly by any worker themselves or through shop stewards, site supervisor, business agents and co-workers.
