Return-To-Wellness Program

Flexible Approach to Addiction Treatment

This cost-effective 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 at most of our residential facilities across the country, including our Edgewood Treatment Centre in Nanaimo, 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.

A Flexible Approach to Treatment that Works

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, which is why we now offer a hybrid approach that includes 2 weeks of stabilization in our Edgewood facility.
