Assessment / Treatment Placement

At Edgewood Health Network Ottawa, your care begins with an individual assessment. Every client is unique and we use industry standard screening tools to determine the level and severity of a substance use disorder. This allows us to determine the appropriate level of treatment for you and to develop your personalized care plan. Whether you need individual addiction counselling, aftercare groups, or an intensive outpatient program (IOP), we’ll find the right fit. This means that every client gets the right care for their level of addiction.

Individual Counselling

Working with a qualified addiction therapist allows clients and families to access support and explore the underlying issues of addiction. Through varied modalities including CBT, DBT and interpersonal therapy, clinicians work to create sustained movement towards recovery.

Aftercare Groups

Our Aftercare groups support you through the first few years of recovery. Though an assessment or discharge from a residential facility, clients receive treatment that incorporates individual, group and family care. We provide you with the guidance and support essential in dealing with difficulties that could derail your recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Program: An affordable and effective option to residiential treatment

IOPs are equally effective when compared with inpatient and residential treatments.
IOPs have emerged as a critical facet of 21st century addiction treatment for people
who need a more intensive level of service than usual outpatient treatment,
and they allow participants to…step down successfully from inpatient services.
–Published in Psychiatry Service Journal June 1, 2014

Not everyone can leave their homes and jobs for a residential addiction treatment facility. But it doesn’t mean that help isn’t available. For them, Edgewood Health Network Ottawa offers an in-depth, short-term outpatient program that meets the needs of the individual and sets them on the journey to recovery.

Consisting of a consultation and two phases, the program also includes:
Education on addiction / Cognitive Behavioural Therapy / Relapse prevention techniques / Group therapy sessions / Anxiety management techniques / Healthy living practices /Assessments / Recovery Plan / Family involvement and education / Homework / Outside support / Recovery meetings. A continuous enrollment process for this program allows clients to immediately register for this intensive program any time after their consultation with one of our clinicians.

IOP is a 12-week, evening program (Mon-Thurs 6:00-8:00 pm) that allows the person to continue to work and stay at home while getting evidence-based treatment! It also includes a weekly individual counselling session.

What are benefits?

  • 90% of clients stay sober during the 12 week program
  • Continue to work or go to school
  • Practice recovery skills in real time
  • Immediate intake
  • Individual counselling
  • Affordable: $6,250 versus $20,000-30,000 inpatient treatment
  • Financing available

When it comes to addiction, no two patients are alike. IOP is ideal for individuals that are wishing to know more about their substance-use, or for those that have had a relapse and wish to get back on track or for the person graduating out of an inpatient situation and require additional support transitioning back into the real world.
