Hybrid Inpatient and Online Addiction Treatment

This treatment program from EHN Canada focuses on providing you with the intensive support you need, without having to commit to longer-term inpatient care. 

Our hybrid approach includes a two-week stay available at most of our residential facilities across the country, including our EHN Edgewood Nanaimo in BC, with the option of a medically supervised detox if required, followed by EHN Online’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a flexible and virtual approach that provides the same evidence-based treatment provided across the EHN Canada network.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are a unique new option for those struggling with mental health disorders and addiction. IOPs are great for those who do not need, or simply cannot commit to inpatient treatment due to family or work obligations. However, for some individuals additional support is required at the beginning of their journey, which is why we now offer a hybrid approach that includes 2 weeks of stabilization in our EHN Edgewood Nanaimo facility.

How the Program Works

Combining a short inpatient stay followed by a virtual Intensive Outpatient Program, this flexible program is offered during the daytime, evenings, and weekends. The 8 week program curriculum is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the underlying causes of drug and alcohol addiction, as well as a variety of skills and practices to help improve your life. It may be an effective option if you cannot step away from family or work obligations for a long period of time. Our Hybrid Addiction Program includes:


Two weeks of Stabilization at a Residential Treatment Center which includes full inpatient programming with intensive individual and group treatment, 24/7 nursing care and Medical Management including Psychiatric Consultation.


Eight weeks of intensive programming including nine hours of individual counselling, group therapy, skills development, and psychoeducation treatment per week.


Twelve months of aftercare following the intensive programming. Meet with a group once a week to maintain positive habits and practice skills.
