CMHA Cowichan - Sobering and Assessment Centre

SAC has two dorms. One holds four beds, the other two. Generally the larger dorm is used for male clients and the smaller dorm for female clients. SAC can accommodate youth between the ages of 17-18. Youth are not housed with adults. All beds are assigned on a first come—first served basis. If youth clients present after adults are already in the dorms, then youth must be turned away and the RCMP contacted. If a non-gender or trans-gender client presents they may be assigned a bed in the dorm with which they most identify. 

Clients may have a nutritious drink and snack upon departure. Clients can shower and have clothes laundered. Sac provides, through donations, soap and shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, hand lotion, feminine hygiene products, socks and some extra clothing on a limited basis. Although SAC is only a sleeping program it does intend to connect clients with services in the community.
