A Peaceful Setting Where Recovery Begins

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.

Specially Trained Staff Deliver Personalized Care

From their causes to their symptoms, no two people experience addiction or mental health disorders in the same way. That’s why doctors and facility staff at Edgewood create a unique care plan designed just for you. While the methods and treatments we use are founded on science, they are delivered with the personalized attention required for recovery that lasts. At Edgewood, our broad range of treatments include: • Detox and withdrawal management • 24/7 medical care and nursing support • On-site team of psychiatrists and highly qualified mental health professionals • Individual and group therapy • Peer support groups that foster community, including AA, NA, and SMART Recovery • Psychotherapy, including CBT and DBT • Integrated care (yoga, meditation, fitness, nutrition, sleepy hygiene, art therapy) • Family therapy • Relapse prevention strategies to support long-term success • Comprehensive discharge planning, involving community care providers • Online recovery tools using the Wagon app • And a lifelong alumni network.

Unique Programs Designed to Get Unique Results

At Edgewood, we understand that recovery from addiction and mental health disorders means long-term results. We know that you are not the only one impacted by addiction and mental health disorders. They can take their toll on your family as well, including children. And children of those who suffer without treatment may face the same struggles as they get older. Edgewood has designed programs especially to address these concerns and to help your entire family heal. Also, support from Edgewood does not end once you step out the door. Believing that ongoing recovery requires ongoing care, we provide up to one year of aftercare, an important part of relapse prevention, for all eligible Edgewood patients who complete a full treatment program. And for those for whom inpatient treatment is not the right fit, EHN Outpatient Services offers both online and in-person programming that accommodates both family and work life, from Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) to specialty groups to aftercare.
