Outreach Program
CJAY provides outreach to youth and families dealing with substance abuse and addictions issues in the communities in its service area. This includes doing preventative public education on substance abuse, as well as coordinating safe youth activities.

The Outreach and Follow-up Worker also coordinate follow-up support and services for youth who have participated in the Centre's treatment program, as well as reaching new potential clients.
 
Anti drug Strategy (Care Facilitator)
Care Facilitation is coordination between a wide range of services that supports individuals and families after they graduate or not graduate from our 7 week family program.
It is to assist individuals and families in their healing journey.

We held 2 Care Facilitation workshops (2 days) in the past 2 years for referral communities to understand what care facilitation is and the benefits for optimal client care.
We had First Nations and Inuit attend the workshops from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

As a part of program we offer pre-treatment services to help the client(s) prepare for their 7 week stay.
We have developed an aftercare and follow up plan to better serve our clients after they finish the family program.

We offer a support group once a week for former clients who live in the local area.
