The mission of the Vector Medical Clinics is to provide a safe and compassionate environment for patients suffering from addictive behaviours with possible concurrent traumatic experiences and chronic pain issues. We are committed to providing comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and education that are patient-centred, research-based and recovery-focused. The dedicated staff seek to engage individuals and families through motivational, goal-focused treatment at accessible community locations. Recovery is fostered and promoted through the establishment of a healing partnership that addresses the biological and psychosocial aspects of addiction. It is through this approach that the patients can receive the tools they need to achieve balance and the integration of body and mind to reclaim, develop and sustain meaningful lives free from destructive addictive behaviours.
Value Quality and Integrity: We seek to maintain the highest standards of care and achieve them by continually measuring and improving our outcomes. We adhere to high moral principles and professional standards by a commitment to honesty, confidentiality, trust, respect and transparency.
Education about the illness of addiction, its treatment, relapse prevention and recovery empowers individuals and their families.
Continuity: Addiction is a chronic illness with biological, psychosocial and societal components. It is important for individuals to continually be compliant with their care while attending our clinic and after returning to the community.
Treatment is designed on the principles of dignity and mutual respect and aims to engage patients in a recovery partnership emphasizing the importance of self-management and empowerment as well as healthy patient- and family-centred care.
Observe and Advocate for a safe and secure environment for our patients, staff and community.
Recovery is a process of abstinence and change where success is achieved in returning to productive functioning of the patient in the family, workplace and society.
Addictive disorders affect a very large segment of society and as such, represent the major challenge to human fulfillment, productivity and health in the 21st century.
Through our six guiding principles we hope to achieve our goal of reducing the human suffering and societal burden of addictive disorders and their complications on the patients, their families and the community.
