|About Alphanon Consultants Inc.
|Alphanon Consultants was established in
1994 by a group of addictions professionals to further develop the
concept of treatment alternatives for people who would otherwise be
left to their addictions and criminal activity. We were of the opinion
that a potential loss of human capital was increasing because of poor
or tardy identification of issues that rendered the individual subject
to repeated unsuccessful treatment, inconsistent employment,
incarceration and the undermining of social and family fabric. Our
experience as therapists, program developers in various treatment
milieus and our willingness to go to the client, commends us to a
large niche in both the business and private community. These
individuals are corporate executives to young people beginning their
careers in life.
We are a company of professionals who are as comfortable doing
assessments in provincial and federal institutions and corporate
offices. We believe that our role in pre-sentencing in extreme case
provides the judicial system with viable alternative and significant
cost savings while providing much more optimistic potential
outcomes. We have been engaged pro bona since 1999 in the
development of treatment alternatives program in provincial
institutions that has culminated in the “Alternate Solution”
treatment plan proposed for the Burch facility.
Consultants provides EAP services for companies of all sizes and
employee levels. In 1997 we expanded our services to include human
resource management training and development.
|Today we continue to provide confidential
consulting services at all levels to assist in the saving of dollars,
job and productivity loss and the successful reconnection of
individuals who find themselves in need of objective support and
