Addiction and Mental Health
The day-to-day experiences of military, veterans, first responders, and healthcare workers, often including life-and-death decisions, are unimaginable to the average citizen. As a result, they often experience moral injury, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and operational stress injury. Increased substance use can become a way they choose to deal with these feelings.
At Gateway Recovery Centre in Peterborough, Ontario, just an hour and a half outside Toronto, our Addiction and Mental Health Program is designed to treat the root cause of addiction and mental health struggles, leading to long-lasting recovery.
How it works
