Situated amidst the natural beauty of Vancouver Island’s east coast, Edgewood provides the tranquility and challenge patients need to get better. Their team of doctors are part of a large, diverse therapeutic community focused on treatment for addiction, mood and anxiety disorders, and trauma. From the grounds to the living quarters to therapy spaces, Edgewood is designed for comfort and care where patients can recover from: • Alcohol and drug addiction • Trauma and addiction • Trauma and psychological injury (PTSD) • And sex and love addiction. In addition, Edgewood offers programs created especially to treat: • Those struggling with relapse • Military, Veterans, and First Responders • Healthcare professionals and other professionals who have access to controlled substances as part of their job • LGBTQ+ people who are struggling with trauma often associated with discrimination • Indigenous peoples looking for recovery in a safe and inclusive environment • Patients who have completed treatment and want to reintegrate more gradually into the external community • And family members, including children, of those struggling with mental health disorders or addiction.
For those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, or work-related trauma, a stable treatment program can make the difference between recovery and relapse. But putting their families and careers on hold to receive inpatient treatment is a disruption many people aren’t able to make. And some outpatient programs simply don’t provide the level of attention some patients need. Now available from EHN Outpatient Services, our Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) provide effective, short-term treatment for substance addictions, mood and anxiety disorders, and trauma/PTSD. Offered in-person at a clinic location across Canada (where safety precautions permit) and virtually via EHN Online, the IOP therapeutic program consists of 8 weeks of intensive treatment, 9 hours of group and individual sessions per week, plus 10 months of aftercare to support ongoing recovery. Important psychoeducation uses the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Behavioural Activation Therapy (BA). We also offer an exclusive Healthy Minds Teen Program with specialized programming for those aged 14-18.
