YOUR RIGHTS

Youth Right and Our Pledge to You

Youth have a right to:

  • Be treated with respect
  • Express their feelings and opinions
  • Be listened to and taken seriously
  • Make mistakes
  • Be healthy
  • Information and explanations you understand
  • Privacy; being in treatment is a private matter, why you are here and your treatment is also private

Our pledge to you:

  • We will be patient while you decide if you can trust us
  • We will let you tell your story, your way
  • We will accept that whatever you have done and whatever you may do is the Best that you can do at the time with what you are given
  • We will see you not as ‘an addict or substance abuser,’ but as ‘this’ person, someone who struggles with substance use
  • We won’t judge you as right or wrong, good or bad
  • We won’t assume to know what is right for you, and accept that you may be confused or scared, but you are still the expert of yourself
  • We won’t place high expectations on you, and realize you have enough trouble with your own at the moment
  • We will hear your feelings, not just your words
  • We won’t save you; we realize you can do that yourself
  • We will provide consistent support every step of the way
  • We will help you help yourself
EXPECTATIONS

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.

 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Youth will not be physically or verbally aggressive toward self or others, including those inside and outside of the centre.
  4. Criminal Activity of any kind ( theft of property, damaging of property, inappropriate website searches, etc.) is not tolerated.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
