Sans Souci Program for Transition and Recovery

Sans Souci Program for Transition and Recovery


The Sans Souci Program specializes in the care of individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness. Diagnostically, it includes schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders, affective disorders including bipolar disorder and unipolar depression, and various disorders with an organic origin. The goal of transition and recovery is to ensure that the person with a serious psychiatric disability possesses those physical, emotional and intellectual skills needed for him/her to live, learn, work and socialize in his/her own particular environment. The program provides in-hospital and community based treatment and rehabilitation.

Visiting a patient
Visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 8:50 p.m. daily. Visitors are encouraged to visit with the patient's consent and children are welcome with adult supervision.

Visitors are asked to contact the program/social worker prior visiting. On some occasions, patients may refuse to meet with visitors, even though they may have travelled a considerable distance. When this occurs, we respect the decision of the patient and we will provide support where appropriate. Waypoint may also restrict visiting hours for clinical or security reasons.
