From Surviving to Thriving: Services for Adults

We offer a wide range of services for adults facing challenges with mental health, substance use and homelessness or the risk of homelessness. 

Our services for adults are focused on recovery and tailored to the needs of each individual. Participation in any of our programs is always voluntary, because we believe everyone has the right to control the course of their own life.

Our services and programs include one-on-one case management, assistance navigating the care system and referrals to additional health care providers and social services.

The 416 Drop-In Centre provides supports to those who identify as women dealing with mental health and substance use issues who are homeless or at-risk of being homeless. Supports include meals, food bank, health care, help securing housing and programs that help towards living independently.

The program also offers a medical component, including two family physicians, a chiropodist and a nurse.

All our programs are designed to help create social connections, which can greatly improve quality of life for our clients. By incorporating peer support into each of our programs, we’re helping clients build community and mutual support that will last long after our services are no longer needed. 

People living with mental health and addiction issues are most vulnerable during early evening and weekend hours. Until our Community Evening and Weekend Treatment Program was launched in 2014, there were no support groups available during those times. The program is a partnership between LOFT, SickKids and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. 

When people want to change the direction of their lives, we’re there. We offer a range of personalized services, including need assessment, goal development, skills building, advocacy and crisis intervention and prevention. We also help connect our clients with other community, social and health care services and resources.
