The Expectations at ANTTS are meant to keep everyone safe and treated with respect. Below are the main house rules. These may change when needed.
- Respect is central to ANTTS values. It is expected that youth will treat everyone- inside and outside of the centre – with respect. Respect is shown in our language, our actions, our thoughts, and in everything we do.
- Youth are to treat the centre as their home. Damage to property will not be tolerated. This includes within the centre or on centre grounds.
- Youth will not be physically or verbally aggressive toward self or others, including those inside and outside of the centre.
- Criminal Activity of any kind ( theft of property, damaging of property, inappropriate website searches, etc.) is not tolerated.
- Youth must not bring in to ANTTS, or have guests bring into the facility any drug paraphernalia, drugs, or alcohol. If brought into the facility or on facility property, these items will be confiscated and removed from the property for everybody’s safety.
- Youth must not bring into ANTTS any weapons, imitation weapons, or anything that staff feel has the potential to be used as a weapon. If brought into ANT, or on ANT property, these items will be confiscated and removed from the property for everybody’s safety.
- Youth are not permitted to block their bedroom doors by any means. Staff conduct 30 minute checks throughout the night to ensure youth safety. Blocking the door is also a safety issue in case of emergency.
- Room searches and urine screens may occur randomly or at any time if there is reason to believe that youth have used substances, or have contraband items. Any items found which are on the list of contraband outlined above, will be removed by staff or RCMP if needed. A positive drug screen may result in a more thorough lab examination or dismissal from the program.
- ANT staff have the right to search any bags and / or pockets or any item they so wish if they are suspicious of its contents. Any items brought into the centre by guests will be searched before youth are able to possess them.
