The Mood, Anxiety, Substance Treatment and Recovery Service program is designed to support the unique needs of mature adults in an environment with peers of comparable age and life experience. Most traditional treatment programs for mental health and addiction exclude individuals with physical comorbidities and cognitive deficits. This program strongly focuses on attaining the highest level of understanding of the illness and improving self-worth, well-being, and independence.
Two key objectives of this program are to: be a centre of excellence for inpatient assessment and treatment for mature adults in the Guelph-Wellington region and throughout Canada; and promote awareness and understanding of the mental health, addiction and concurrent disorder needs of mature adults.
MASTRS Program patients are assessed at intake and discharge using various tools. Based on data in 2022, 89% of patients showed overall improvement.
Homewood has extensive experience in treating complex and co-occurring disorders. It is often the case that individuals may be suffering 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.
