7 Reasons to Choose Bellwood

Bellwood Health Services Facility

Deciding to get help for addiction or a mental health disorder is a difficult one. But deciding which treatment facility offers the best treatment doesn’t have to be.

Here are seven reasons why Bellwood Health Services, nestled in midtown Toronto’s Sunnybrook Park, is the right choice for your recovery journey.

1. Receive 24/7 Care From Bellwood’s Compassionate Team of Healthcare Providers

At Bellwood, we are proud to be staffed by a team of experts who truly cares about your recovery. And when you are in one of our inpatient treatment programs, you will have around-the-clock access to medical staff. Exemplary nurses, doctors, and psychiatrists will form part of your medical team. Our clinicians and therapists are Masters-level social workers and psychotherapists who have one goal: to watch you get back to a life you love.

Our staff also includes renowned members of Canada’s mental health community, including Medical Director Dr. Mark Weiss and Psychiatrist in our Eating Disorders program, Dr. Kalam Sutandar. Our entire team, whether they are a psychiatrist, clinician, occupational therapist, registered dietician, physical recreation specialist, or yoga instructor, has prioritized the holistic well-being of each of our patients. Together, we address emotional, physical, and social aspects of your recovery journey.

 2. Get the Most Hours of Treatment During Your Stay

Evidence suggests that there is a positive correlation between the length of treatment and long-term recovery. It’s why our programs offer patients more hours than most other treatment programs. We also prioritize longer-stay programs that are 50 days or more.

More hours and longer stays mean more time to understand the origins of your addiction or mental health disorder, more time to develop the skills you need to recover and maintain your progress, and more time to build lasting connections with fellow patients that will help form your support system for years to come.

3. Benefit From Our Network of Knowledge

Bellwood is part of the EHN Canada network, a collection of best-in-class treatment facilities across the country. So, what does this mean for our patients? It means you benefit from the shared experience, knowledge, and expertise of our staff across every location.

The sharing of best practices, most effective treatment modalities, and success stories means the best chance at long-term recovery from addiction or a mental health disorder.

4. We’re a Trusted Partner in Recovery

It’s one thing for us to tell you about our success in recovery, but the partnerships we have forged also speak to our trusted place in the industry.

Organizations and facilities that count on us for addiction and mental health disorder treatment include the International Association of Fire Fighters, Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, and more.

 5. We Have a Legacy of Excellence in Addiction and Mental Health Treatment

Since addiction treatment pioneer Dr. Gordon Bell co-founded Bellwood over 40 years ago, we have been at the forefront of innovative, effective programs for substance use and mental health disorders.

What sets us apart is our unique approach, combining the latest scientific insights with evidence-based methodologies to chart the course towards holistic healing and sustainable recovery. At our core, we recognize that everyone’s journey is personal and complex. It’s what drives our emphasis on personalized care, allowing us to address the specific needs of every patient we serve – for the best chance at long-lasting recovery.

6. We Offer Flexible Admission

When you or a loved one needs treatment, sometimes there is no time to waste. We offer flexible admission seven days a week, evenings, and even on holidays. This accessibility ensures that individuals seeking help can start their recovery journey promptly.

7. Support After You Leave Treatment

Completing your treatment program is just the beginning of your long-term recovery. At Bellwood, we have both our Aftercare services and an enthusiastic alumni community here to offer ongoing support.

Our comprehensive one-year Aftercare program, we offer ongoing support to our alumni as they navigate life post-treatment, ensuring a smooth transition and continued personal growth. And our Thrive Recovery Community provides the ongoing support needed to help our patients live happy, healthy lives after treatment is over.
