Addiction Treatment Programs with Strong Mental Health Components
Rob* called in for his 45-year-old sister, Sara*, at the end of August looking for treatment programs that would help her deal with mental health stability rather than abstinence.
Sara has already attended Bellwood 4-5 times, which was covered by her employer (a county in Ontario). Sara is described as a binge drinker with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. She was recently disciplined for drinking on the job.
The three major mental health programs in Ontario include:
- Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care in Penetanguishine
- CAMH Anxiety and Mood Disorders Inpatient Program in Toronto
- Meadow Creek Residential Treatment in Ottawa
If the employer wanted to pay for private treatment again or if the family wanted to pay a fee, we recommended Joey Marcelli for intervention services and the Freedom from Addiction Recovery Home to keep her in Ontario.
