Attention: Community Case Managers

It has come to our attention that there may be misinformation in the community about the

Saskatoon Health Region smoking policy implementation at Calder Centre and the impact

upon clients when participating in our program. We want to take this opportunity to ensure

that all referral sources provincially have accurate information to pass along to clients, which

will assist them in making an informed decision about entering residential treatment.

Upon admission to Calder, clients are given information regarding Nicotine Replacement

Therapy, and given the opportunity to quit smoking should they choose to do so. Although

smoking in and around Calder Centre property is prohibited, provisions have been made for

clients to leave the property and smoke in designated areas off-site. This applies to all adult

clients, even client where clinical presentation requires them to have restricted community

access for a duration of time.

Should you or your client have further questions regarding the smoking policy or any other

questions regarding our program, please contact myself or Calder Centre main office. We’ll be

happy to provide you with any information we can. Additionally, you can find information for

yourself and clients on the website at


, just follow the links and

find Calder Centre information under Programs & Services\Mental Health & Addiction

Services\Adult Services\Residential Treatment – Adult (Calder Centre)\Adult Admission Guide

Attention: Provincial Addictions Counselors

Subject: Cell phone use at Calder Centre

For those of you whom make referrals to Calder Centre, we wanted to communicate a change

to our Adult Program expectations. As of August 15, 2011, adult clients will no longer be

allowed to have cell phones while in our program. They must be handed in to staff at admission

and placed in a secure room, with any other belongings that are restricted, ie perfume,

camera’s, laptops, and returned to the client at transfer.

We have found that having access to cell phones proves to be a distraction for clients, taking

focus away from the program. Also, due to most phones having camera and video camera

capabilities, they significantly impact the ability we have as staff to ensure confidentiality for

our clients. Our moving to not allowing cell phones is consistent with other inpatient treatment

centres throughout the province.

To ensure that clients continue to have a means to access family, friends and other supports,

we’ve added to the client phones (land lines) that clients can use while in the program.

I am requesting your help with communicating this information around cell phones to your

client’s prior to referral and admission, and encourage client’s to come to Calder with long

distance calling cards, etc should they need them.

Also prohibited while at Calder Centre are laptops, I-pads, Blackberry Playbooks, IPOD touch,

camera’s, etc. Clients may bring with them personal music devices ie. MP3’s, Discman, Ipod, so

long as they do not have camera capabilities.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this program change.

Should you have further questions regarding this change or require any additional information

about the Calder Centre programs, please access information on our website at


, or call Calder at 655-4500.
