FIND YOUR PATH TO RECOVERY.

Why the Edgewood Health Network?

Get your family back with a treatment program that works.

We believe that the best chance for long term recovery is a treatment program that addresses all aspects of our patient’s health: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components, as well as the family, and community system.

At EHN, we help your loved one navigate their individual path to recovery. Every path is different, which is why the patient works to a personalized treatment program at their rate. Some people take less time. Others take more. It all depends on the complexity of the patient’s individual needs, issues, resources and strengths.

Yet that’s not all. We offer the best opportunity for success through providing ongoing support and continuing care after inpatient treatment. In a recent Bellwood study (http://www.bellwood.ca/why-success_rates.php), it was found that 83% of substance use clients who participated in Bellwood's Continuing Care and one other aftercare support were in high recovery after 6 months.

With the only national network of adult inpatient and outpatient treatment services across the country, 24/7 help, and an open-source assessment tool, we provide top-tier, customized paths for every one of our patients.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Our world renowned programs.

Inpatient Treatment for
Addiction Includes:

  • On-site clinical detox for drug addictions like alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, or heroin
    • For some, detoxification is a necessary first step. Our doctors are experienced and accredited with organizations like ASAM. With knowledge of the process and 24-hour nursing support, our patients are assisted throughout the duration of the stay.
  • Process addictions like gambling or sex addiction and eating disorders
  • Specialized treatment for concurrent mental health disorders.
  • Personalized care programs
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Supervised physical fitness

How Inpatient Addiction
Treatment Works:

  • Abstinence-based treatment model that uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group therapy, structured relapse prevention and the fundamentals of the 12 steps
  • A caring environment staffed by committed and experienced health care professionals
  • Educational lectures that discuss the nature of addiction
  • Guided group therapy for open honesty in a safe, supportive environment
  • Professional psychiatric evaluations
  • Peer and self-assessments
  • Personalized aftercare plan

Our highly skilled,
collaborative &
multidisciplinary team includes:

  • Physicians
  • Psychiatrists
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Nurses
  • Certified fitness/recreation staff
  • Dieticians and Nutritionists
  • Chaplains
  • Support staff and Admissions Coordinators

WHAT IS CONTINUUM OF CARE?

Our point of difference.

When it comes to addiction, relapse can be costly to everyone. Which is why at the Edgewood Health Network, it’s an ongoing process that goes far beyond inpatient or outpatient treatment. Our staff work closely with your loved one to develop a comprehensive Continuing Care plan that will assist them through their first year of recovery and beyond. This includes extended care, aftercare services, online aftercare, sober living houses and outpatient services. Of course, as an alumni of the Edgewood Health Network, they can call for support at any time - be it next year or next decade.

Family Programs and support

The path to family recovery

Addiction is a family disease because many family members are profoundly impacted by the behaviour of an addicted loved one. The best way for family members to support their loved one’s treatment and to take care of themselves is to undertake their own recovery process.

The Edgewood Health Network encourages family members to undertake their own path of recovery through our family programs. We provide a facilitated group process that offers education about addiction and its impact on relationships. It’s a chance for family members to learn ways that will change destructive relationship patterns. If you have been hurt by someone else’s addiction or wish to improve your relationships, our family programs are for you.

Children are deeply impacted by living in a family struggling with addiction. Most kids don’t like admitting when there is trouble at home, but without a means of communicating their feelings, they internalize the conflict. With specific programs designed for children ages 7-12 years, we can begin to teach kids healthy ways to communicate and build relationships.
