Edgewood Treatment Centre
Extended Care Program at Edgewood
Returning home after rehab is full of challenges. You may be exposed to triggers and lack the support system you had while in treatment. You may also need time and resources to secure a safe place to return to in the community. Our post-treatment Extended Care Program is designed to help you practice the skills you’ve learned in inpatient treatment as you gain more independence and confidence before returning home.
While at Edgewood, through volunteer and vocational training opportunities, you’ll be able to solidify relapse prevention skills in real-world settings while living in the safety of our community environment. You’ll develop healthy support systems, improve on the communication and life skills needed to support recovery, and test out the aftercare plan you created during rehab.
In order to be eligible for extended care, you must have completed an accredited inpatient program within the last year, be at least 30 days sober from substances or process addiction, and be able to spend at least one month in the program.
A Day at Edgewood Inpatient Centre
Every Edgewood journey is a holistic experience that comes with the support and guidance needed to heal and grow. While every stay in Nanaimo is different, this is what a day at our treatment centre might look like.
Our Extended Care program is for patients who have already completed inpatient treatment. If you’re looking to enroll in rehab, EHN Canada has plenty of options for you.
