Your Recovery

Edgewood Health Network’s Sandstone facility is a licenced addiction rehabilitation facility, which means we focus on treatments that are backed by science and proven to work. Every patient works closely with our on-site medical team and has round-the-clock access to nurses and counsellors. We know that addiction creates and feeds off of isolation, so community and connection are fundamental to our philosophy of care. The small size of our facility means you’ll build strong connections with fellow patients, which will aid in your recovery.

Our History

Built in 1967, our building was once home to the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate convent. Today, this intimate setting offers Canadians struggling with addiction and related mental health concerns a safe space for recovery, with a high level of one-on-one attention from caring and compassionate clinicians. Sandstone joined the Edgewood Health Network family in 2019, and has been making evidence-based care more accessible in Alberta ever since.

Sandstone Reviews

H MH M ★★★★★ Dennis BlasDennis Blas ★★★★★ I went to EHN Sandstone at a point in my life where I felt hopeless and despair. Addicted to alcohol as my only crutch. My inpatient time at Sandstone was transforming. The level of education, care and support was at a level I could have not possibly expected... to the credit of all of the Sandstone staff. They renewed my belief in myself and that I could overcome. Without question, I highly recommend ENH Sandstone to anyone experiencing mental health issues and/or addiction challenges.Robin MoreauRobin Moreau ★★★★★ I'll start by saying that the staff and councillors at this facility are both professional and down to earth.They helped diagnose past and recent traumas that were hindering me in a proper recovery, that of which I had at one point and was truly interested in keeping ongoing in my life. The help and tools that I have received in the past 60 days will keep me present in my mind and aware of the recovery I truly deserve.I would recommend this facility to anyone struggling with any issues that they are willing to deal with in our troubling society. Thank you Sandstone, you've made my life and my mind manageable and pleasurable to be a part of once again.Edit: Once again, thank you for the last year in recovery, I couldn't have done it without your help and understanding, I'm looking forward to hearing from you to share my story!KMK Technical Services LtdKMK Technical Services Ltd ★★★★★ This facility, specifically the people in this facility, have impacted my life in a way I never thought possible! The care and attention to detail was top notch from the moment I entered the doors to the minute I walked out. From the support staff, the nurses and doctors, my therapists and councillors, and incredibly talented chefs; I have never been treated with more grace and dignity in my life. I can say with all honesty that my life going forward will never be the same! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking my life into your care and helping me discover the person I was always meant to be! If you’re looking for change you will find it at Edgewood Sandstone! These people love with intention and truly care!! Thank you Sandstone Team, you are all my forever friends! ~ KarJeff Marois-McKenzieJeff Marois-McKenzie ★★★★★ John CaccamoJohn Caccamo ★★★★★ It will be difficult to express what an incredible and life changing experience I had at SS, but I’ll do my best.When I arrived at SS, I was broken, and had been for a very long time. I had very little hope, if any, that treatment Center number 13 would help stop my suffering from addiction and trauma.I chose SS because it is a small centre. Approximately 1-14 clients. The website presented a very quiet intimate setting in a home like facility. It was just like that.From the moment I walked through the front door, ( scared, insecure and on the brink of a full blown anxiety attack) I was welcomed by the head of administration (A). It was like she could read my mind. She was so kind, compassionate and gentle, I still call her an Angel to this day. I looked around briefly and felt like I was in someone’s home. Beautiful cozy country like furnishings with a huge see through fireplace. I instantly felt safe.I had been clean many times for good stretches of time, but invariably I would end up relapsing. Each time although brief, became more and more difficult to come back from and the depression and shame was killing me.SS takes each client, does a number of assessments to determine what your needs are in terms of addiction and mental illness. I spent most of my first two weeks under going very detailed extensive assessments from psychiatrists doctors , nurses and my primary counsellor. When this recon was completed, the team knew exactly what I needed, with a plan of how to meet those needs. I have never ever experienced a staff, and I mean from the client support workers to the chef and everyone in between so totally committed to helping me get well. My counsellor approached my care from an angle that no one ever had in the past. They work as one unit ( the staff) they are all involved in your care. They do not leave a stone unturned. I really could and would really love to share my whole experience with the readers, but it would be too long. Let me just say, I left SS 49 days later, a different person. A person filled with hope and confidence. Most of all, I figured out who I was… and I like him… a lot.Forever great full,Johnathan CSarah PashniakSarah Pashniak ★★★★★ I highly recommend this facility to anyone struggling with mental health and or addictions.
