Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program for Ontario Residents
Bellwood’s Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program for Ontario Residents provides comprehensive treatment, and is validated by years of research and experience. It is designed to promote long-term recovery based on clear evidence that continuing care/ aftercare is an integral part of successful recovery.
Like all of Bellwood’s comprehensive programs, the Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program for Ontario Residents offers a three-phased treatment process: the Assessment Phase; the Residential Treatment Phase; and the Continuing Care Phase. During the assessment phase, the focus is to identify your specific needs, and to determine if this program is the right one for you. Moving forward into alcohol addiction treatment, Bellwood recommends a process comprised of residential treatment and family support, followed by a strong continuing care program.
Our Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program for Ontario Residents (Phase 2) includes:
- Comprehensive 3.5 week program of education and therapy
- Group therapy sessions three times a week
- Practical life skills and relapse prevention programming
- Nutrition education and fitness instruction
- Personal Health Plan development
- Weekly physician monitoring
- 24/7 nursing support
- Introduction to 12-step groups
Who is Eligible?
Bellwood’s Alcohol Treatment Program for Ontario Residents is available to men and women 19 years of age and older who are Ontario residents with a valid health card. The program is specifically for alcohol addiction, and not for other drug addictions or problems related to gambling, sex or eating disorders. A thorough psychosocial and medical assessment is conducted and a physician and other members of the assessment team will determine your suitability for the program. Determining factors include:
- Alcohol dependency only
- Physical/psychological functioning (including medical stability)
Medical clearance by a physician is required prior to admission. As noted, you may not be eligible for this funded program, and may be referred to other Bellwood programs or another treatment facility.
Funding / Fees
There are no fees for the initial Assessment Phase, or for “ward” accommodation in the Residential Treatment Phase. These aspects of the program are funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long- Term Care. The Family Program and the Continuing Care Treatment Phase of the program, however, are not funded by the province. These program components are available on a fee for service basis, and are highly recommended.
This funded residential program is only available for alcohol addiction treatment. If you are struggling with other substance or behavioural addictions, we will assist you in finding other programs and resources.
What if You Require Detoxification?
If you require detoxification support, Bellwood can assist in a number of ways. We can arrange for withdrawal management/detoxification at Bellwood on a fee-for-service basis, or a referral can be made to a publicly funded detox facility.
Out-of-Province individuals may be eligible for funded treatment from their province in other Bellwood rehab programs through prior approval from their provincial Ministry of Health. In some cases, your treatment program may be financially supported by your company's health program. Please contact us for more details.
Please note that Out-of-Province individuals are not eligible for the Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program for Ontario Residents.
