It’s normal to feel anxious when coming to a treatment facility, but know that we are with you every step of the way. That is why our admissions counsellors are available to provide assistance whenever you or a loved one is ready to admit “I need help”. Our Admissions Team provides a compassionate, discrete, and thorough process to determine the type of treatment you require. We triage, assess medical, mental, physical, and social needs, make recommendations, give appropriate options, and provide referrals. The call is completely confidential and you are under no obligation to come to our treatment facility.
If you would like to come to treatment, book a tour and see our facility or get more information, please give us a call.
Health Smart is available for those in need of payment plans.
