Assessment / Treatment Placement
At Edgewood Health Network, your care begins with an individual assessment. Every client is unique and we use industry standard screening tool to determine the level and severity of a substance use disorder. This allows us to determine the appropriate level of treatment for you and to develop your personalized care plan. Whether you need individual counselling, an outpatient addiction program or residential treatment, we’ll find the right fit. This means that every client gets the right care for their level of addiction.
Working with a qualified addiction therapist allows clients, couples and families to access support and explore the underlying issues of addiction. Through varied modalities including CBT, DBT and interpersonal therapy, clinicians work to create sustained movement towards recovery.
Our therapeutic groups are supportive and compassionate environments that emphasize honesty, self-reflection, community and reciprocity. With groups that focus on managing emotions, addiction education, relapse prevention and coping, our group therapy is integral to your recovery.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Inpatient care is not appropriate or practical for everyone seeking treatment for addiction, so we have created a unique outpatient program. It meets the needs of those who wish to participate in intensive addiction treatment while continuing to maintain their day-to-day lives. The program consists of over 90 hours of psycho-social education, group therapy and individual counselling.
Addiction affects more than the individual. Loved ones often feel anxious, afraid, depressed and overwhelmed. Our family programs and support groups provide a safe place in which your loved ones can communicate their needs and emotions and begin their own healing journey.
Our continuing care groups support you through the first few years of recovery. Though an assessment and/or discharge from a residential facility, clients receive treatment that incorporates individual, group and family care. We provide you with the guidance and support essential in dealing with difficulties that could derail your recovery.
Drug Testing & Monitoring
Drug testing may provide an extra level of accountability that motivates you to stay sober. Test results can facilitate a return to work in safety sensitive positions and help re-establish trust in damaged relationships.
Wellness Programs & Workshops
We are committed to creating an environment that promotes health, wellness and insight. We offer various programs and workshops throughout the year that complement our existing care plans. Engaging in these programs can help you take your recovery to the next level.
