Time On Their Phones That Can Actually Help Teens

 It’s not surprising that teens spend a lot of time on their phones, and now that time can actually do them some good. With access to our Wagon app throughout the program, teens can set goals, log daily emotions and triggers, and track their progress.    

A More Affordable Treatment Option

About half the hourly cost of the average youth counselling service, this online program is a more affordable option for some families.

The 6-month program (including individual counselling, group counselling, interactive activities, psychoeducation, caregiver programming and use of our corresponding teen app) is $4000 + applicable taxes.

We have proudly partnered with New Start Foundation to offer fully subsidised spots to those who qualify for financial assistance. Find out more here.
