Bellwood has been treating addiction and related mental health disorders for over 30 years. Their abstinence-based treatment model is rooted in the work of their co-founder, Dr. Gordon Bell; a pioneer in the treatment of addiction in Canada. Bellwood as an addiction treatment rehab centre is defined by their long-standing experience, combined with our commitment to excellent patient care.
Inpatient treatment is available for alcohol and drug addiction, problem gambling, sexual addiction, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and PTSD in a variety of locations. Our on-site capabilities include detox for drug addiction, behavioural addiction, specialized treatment for hidden problems, personalized care programs, nutritional guidance, supervised physical fitness, and recovery monitoring. Treatment doesn’t stop the moment you check out, however. Our open-ended approach to care means we’re available whenever you need us, for the rest of your life.
In addition, Bellwood’s nine (9)-week Concurrent Trauma and Addiction (CTAP) program is designed to specifically treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and operational stress injuries (OSI) at the same time as addiction, and is designated for military, police, firefighters, EMS, and other first responders. Each patient is matched with a primary counsellor who has extensive trauma therapy training, as well as with a medical doctor. The multidisciplinary CTAP team also includes a clinical psychologist, occupational therapists, and social workers. Patients also have access to a psychiatrist, as needed.
