What happens at COR?

When intoxicated students come in, they are assessed and monitored by professional detox staff from the Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH) Detox Centre and by trained student volunteers. When their condition warrants it, COR staff will send students for medical help at Kingston General Hospital.

Visitors to COR usually sleep it off in this safe environment. Because they are monitored by COR staff, they’ll be helped immediately if their condition worsens.

Our goal is to keep you safe. That’s all. COR staff and volunteers don’t lecture or tell you what to do or what not to do. 


What happens after COR?

All visitors are wakened at 6:30am. Almost always, they’re sent home at this time. If a visitor is still heavily intoxicated and unsafe to leave, alternate arrangements will be made to ensure their safety.

After that, nothing happens. COR does not follow up with students and it doesn’t tell anyone who visited.
