Known as one of the best inpatient facilities in Ontario, EHN Bellwood Toronto is nestled within the city’s expansive Sunnybrook Park, surroundings well-suited for a peaceful recovery.

A longer inpatient treatment program produces better results than a shorter program. However, should your family, work, or life situation be more suited to a shorter or more flexible treatment program, EHN Canada does offer an Intensive Outpatient Program and a Hybrid Addiction Treatment as well.
