Women who want to attend Aventa’s programs will be asked to complete an application form which can be completed and faxed, emailed or mailed to Aventa. Our fax number is (403) 245-9485. After sending us the application, please follow up with a phone call to ensure that we have received your application and to book an assessment appointment. For women living outside the Calgary area, phone assessments can be accommodated, but must be booked in advance by calling (403) 245-9050. When completing a phone assessment, please ensure you are able to call from a quiet, confidential, and safe location (i.e. not while driving or in a public place). Assessment appointments take approximately 1 hour and you must not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the phone or on-site assessment.
Once the assessment has been completed, the Admissions Counsellor will determine the most appropriate level of care for you, either at our facility or elsewhere. If the counsellor recommends treatment at Aventa, they will book a date for you to come in for treatment, and give you a list of what to bring.
The cost as a self-paid Client for the room and board fee is $50/day for the 6 week Phase II Program, plus the $40 Assessment fee. Some Clients qualify for third party funding through agencies such as Alberta Works, AISH, CFS, FASD/CFAN, Extended Health Care Plans, EAP Programs, or NNADAP. Our Assessments and Admissions Counsellor will discuss funding in detail at the time of the assessment.
You may call the Admissions Counsellor if you have any additional questions prior to your arrival. If you are unable you reach us during normal business hours Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, please leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
