Step 3: Screening Process

The third step is the screening process. After we have received and reviewed your referral form and your application form, we will contact you to schedule a time for our screening interview.

We recognize that a ‘screening interview’ sounds intimidating. Our goal is for it not to be. It is simply a chance for us to meet with you, either in person or via the telephone, to help establish the most cohesive and supportive group dynamic that we can create.

Step 4: Getting Here

Once you have received confirmation regarding your specific program date by one of our facilitators, we recommend that you download these documents. They will help you prepare for and find your way to the Paths of Courage Residential Healing Centre.
