Intensive Outpatient

Outpatient addiction treatment is an affordable option for someone who is motivated for recovery but cannot leave work, school, or step away from other responsibilities to stay in an inpatient treatment centre. Addiction disorders are diagnosed on a spectrum: mild, moderate, and severe. Through an assessment process it will be determined what services will best serve you.
