Edgewood Treatment Centre
Trauma & Psychological Injury Program
An inpatient PTSD treatment program in B.C. – exclusively for Military, Veterans, and First Responders
This program is designed for members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans Affairs Canada, RCMP, healthcare professionals and any other First Responders as well as anyone covered under Presumptive Legislation for the treatment of PTSD and/or Operational Stress Injury (OSI).
When you begin your PTSD and OSI treatment program on Edgewood’s Nanaimo, B.C. campus, you leave fear of judgement at the door and join a community committed to your recovery.
During your stay at Edgewood, you’ll receive support from medical specialists and fellow military members and first responders who understand what you’re going through. Our experienced counsellors, psychiatrists, physicians, and nurses provide the guidance and care to overcome trauma and give you the PTSD treatment you need.
- Primary diagnosis related to operational stress injury (DND, VAC, RCMP, Police, Firefighters, Paramedics, any First Responders).
- Operational trauma must be present.
- No present addiction to substances. Those who are struggling with both trauma and addiction our Concurrent Trauma and Addiction Program for service members may be a better fit.
A Day at Edgewood Inpatient Centre
The recovery journey at Edgewood takes a holistic approach, offering support and guidance in every aspect of a client's life needed to foster growth and healing. While no two stays at our Nanaimo treatment centre are the same, here is what a typical day might look like in our Trauma and Psychological Injury Program for Military, Veterans, and First Responders.
Many people who struggle with trauma also face concurrent mental health or addiction challenges. EHN Canada offers a number of recovery programs – both online and in-person at facilities across the country.
