Ledgehill for Men Treatment Centre

Core Addiction and Mental Health

Recovering from a mental health disorder or addiction takes focus. And for some, that means an environment free from distraction. It’s why we decided to offer a men-only facility for addiction and mental health treatment. Here, men are free to focus on their recovery and to share openly amongst their peers.

Treatment from a passionate team

Ledgehill for Men offers the same evidence-based treatment programs available at all EHN Canada facilities. But this unique space was created based on demand from our patients. 

At Ledgehill for Men, our professional and compassionate team, including doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, counsellors, kitchen staff, and security staff, are all here to offer a space that is comfortable and safe. 

This program offer:

  • Individual and group counselling by registered therapists
  • Gender-separated facilities and therapy
  • Doctor support
  • Medical staff on-site 24/7
  • Science-backed therapy, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Detox support
  • Medication assistance when needed

Ledgehill’s Core Addiction and Mental Health Program uses an evidence-based approach for treating alcohol and substance use disorders, as well as for treating concurrent mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

We use therapeutic modalities that help individuals develop more constructive thoughts and behaviours, including Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness. 

And for patients who require detox, we use medication assisted treatment (MAT) to minimize their withdrawal symptoms and help them detox as safely, comfortably, and quickly as possible. Each patient’s treatment begins with an intensive onsite diagnostic assessment that includes medication evaluation and management.
