Abstract
This case study explores the question, how does adapting the traditional professional boundaries of confidentiality and dual relationships in the treatment of addictions (by including clients in an ongoing community that practices solidarity, exposure, and psychosocial integration) influence the therapeutic outcome? Framing addiction through the lens of dislocation as per Alexander's Globalization of Addiction (2008), this study looked at the addiction treatment program at Time To Heal Treatment and Workshop Facility, a holistic treatment facility located in Duncan, B.C., Canada.
