Our Space

Focusing on your recovery from addiction or a mental health disorder means being free from other distractions and finding space with comfort and peace. Sometimes people look for treatment close to home while others seek treatment centres further away.

EHN Bellwood Nova Scotia is surrounded by lush green spaces in its rural Nova Scotia setting. With a focus on wellness, we encourage patients to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings to enjoy the fresh air and tranquility and get outdoor exercise in support of their recovery.

Our Story

When we noticed Nova Scotia’s lack of both evidence-based care and facilities with 24/7 access to medical professionals, we worked hard and fast to bring both to the Maritimes.

EHN Canada’s team of addiction and mental health experts are proud to offer our evidence-based, comprehensive care to Atlantic Canada since opening this facility in 2021. Here, we can help more Canadians receive world-class treatment – with access to on-site medical professionals at any time.

Treatment Options in Nova Scotia

When considering addiction treatment, individuals often grapple with the decision of whether to seek help close to home or venture farther away. Each option has its merits and drawbacks, and the choice ultimately hinges on individual circumstances. For some, proximity to familiar places and people can provide crucial emotional support during the recovery journey. Being near loved ones and familiar surroundings can foster a sense of comfort and stability, which is essential for healing.

However, staying close to home may also expose individuals to triggers—people, places, or things—that evoke memories of alcohol or drug use. These reminders can hinder progress and make the recovery process more challenging.

EHN Bellwood Nova Scotia caters to both Atlantic Canada residents and those from various other parts of the country. Nestled in the serene rural environment of Nova Scotia, we offer a tranquil space conducive to healing. The calming surroundings allow individuals to focus on their recovery.

Stories from EHN Bellwood Nova Scotia

You have to go into recovery for you. It sounds bad, but it’s not: recovery is a selfish process.

Stephen S.

This was the first treatment centre I went to for help, breaking a 15 year cycle of addiction with alcohol, drugs, and gaming. Today my life in recovery is unrecognizable from my ‘life’ in active addiction.
