Powerful. Empowering. Life-saving.
Those who put their lives at risk to keep us safe often need some help themselves. EHN Canada is proud to have programs designed to specifically address the addiction and mental health concerns of the most heroic members of our communities: military service members, veterans, and first responders.
By voluntarily putting themselves in harm’s way, they are vulnerable to post-traumatic stress injuries and maladaptive coping strategies that can lead to the development of mood, anxiety, or substance-use disorders. Our inpatient programs can help. For treatment of trauma and psychological injury, we offer a seven-week program. For treatment of concurrent trauma with substance use disorder, our standard program duration is extended to nine weeks.
