Designed specifically for health care workers experiencing challenges related to substance use and concurrent issues relating to mood and or anxiety.
Homewood Health’s Addiction Medicine Program – Substance Use is a nationally recognized flagship program that combines 24/7 medical care and a skilled interdisciplinary team with a highly structured program using proven therapies for behavioural change over six weeks.

Homewood Health has a long history as a leader in treating eating disorders, mental health, trauma, addiction and co-occurring disorders. We can advise on a treatment program that suits you best.
Addiction Medicine Program patients are assessed at intake and discharge using several tools, including the Aggregated Drug Craving Scale (ADCS). Based on data, from May 2018 to June 2021, only 14% of patients had moderate to severe cravings at the end of the program, while 86% had mild to minimal cravings.
We also monitor patient satisfaction regularly to assist with quality control and ensure patients receive the highest quality care. Based on recent data, 91% of patients stated the program had met their needs.
Homewood has extensive experience in treating complex and co-occurring disorders. Often, individuals may suffer from multiple conditions, which can complicate recovery if not identified and addressed. Our clinical approach is designed to help build an understanding of how different issues may affect the individual and employ evidence-based treatment that provides the foundation, knowledge and tools necessary to address these conditions and help build the skills required to sustain long-term recovery.
At Homewood Health we recognize that family and/or friends are an important part of a patient’s social support system, and family/friend involvement is determined based on the patient’s individual needs.
If you feel that someone’s mental health issue or substance use is impacting their ability to function well, there are ways to initiate the conversation and show that you care.
