  • Individual psychotherapy for an empathetic and safe space to discuss personal recovery concerns and develop treatment goals.
  • Group therapy to provide opportunities for peer support and professionally guided emotional processing.
  • Psychoeducational sessions to help you understand yourself and the nature of addiction.

Our medical experts carefully design every aspect of the EHN Bellwood Toronto experience to provide patients with the greatest opportunity for recovery. While every individual’s experience varies, and we are constantly updating our approach to provide the best treatment, here’s an example of what a typical day in EHN Bellwood Toronto’s Addiction and Mental Health Program might look like.



After starting your day with a healthy, chef-prepared breakfast, you’ll set your intentions with some self reflection. Then, you’ll heal from the inside out with an invigorating workout. Afterwards, you’ll attend an educational session about substance use disorders, DBT, or CBT, or immerse yourself in art therapy.



You’ll shift gears with a nutritionist-planned lunch. Then, you’ll attend a one-on-one therapy session or a workshop where you will develop your distress tolerance skills.



In the evening you’ll participate in any of a number of peer support sessions, such as interpersonal process group, SMART recovery, or fellowship. After some more physical recreation, you’ll enjoy dinner with fellow patients.
