T.A. Patterson & Associates Inc. has provided substance abuse treatment services for both adult and youth clients involved with the criminal justice system since 1987.
Our work began with brief intervention group programs for impaired drivers and evolved over time to include individuals with a variety of drug and alcohol problems.
The demand for service grew over the years as did the type of services. In 1991 T.A. Patterson responded to a government request for substance-specific programming by developing and implementing a community based counselling program for youth and young adult clients.
Today our programs provide services to clients from 15 Probation and Parole Offices in Hamilton and the GTA, as well as 9 Youth Justice Offices in the GTA, Hamilton, Niagara, York region and Guelph.
Our programming is flexible and responds to the individual needs of those we serve. We stress the importance of a collaborative relationship with our referral sources and with family, where possible. The objective of all our efforts is to create a structure around the individual that is supportive of recovery, positive change and hope.
