EHN Online IOPs, powered by Wagon, are facilitated entirely online. This program is an effective option for anyone who doesn’t have access to local Substance Use Disorder therapy, rehab, or drug and alcohol programs in their community.
Eight weeks of intensive programming to learn and develop skills that will help you regain control over your cravings, habits, and life.
Nine hours of treatment per week includes individual counselling, group therapy, skills development, and psychoeducation.
Ten months of aftercare following the intensive programming. Meet with a group once a week to maintain positive habits and practice skills.
