Whiterock EHN Canada: Offering a Comprehensive and Integrated Continuum of Care

The WHITEROCK Detox program is the first step of an integrated continuum of care that offers individualized treatment and support to clients on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. We recognize the fear and confusion about the detox process that can, unfortunately, prevent people from getting the help they need. Though each client will have a unique experience, detox at EHN Whiterock features certain important commonalities, including superior clinical care, compassionate support from experienced professionals, a dedication to the safety and comfort of individuals who are completing detox, and the ability to transition seamlessly into treatment following detox.

Detox does not in itself, address the possible psychological and behavioral issues related to addiction. In addition to detox, Whiterock offer a comprehensive, client centered Residential Treatment Program that is general 3-6 weeks in length. Whiterock also offers alternatives to 24/7 care in the form of a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP a.k.a. Day Treatment) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). PHP and IOP serve as step-down programs from detox or residential treatment and are geared towards getting clients re-engaged and functioning in meaningful ways at home, at work and in their communities as soon as possible.

All levels of care (Detox, Residential, PHP and IOP) incorporate specialized treatment by an inter-professional team composed of physicians, nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, and mental health specialists with extensive experience in the treatment of addictions and concurrent mental health issues. The team has experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds. All services are developmentally geared and incorporate standardized assessment and rigorous outcome measurement.
