Our Approach

We believe that successful treatment is not only about recovery but rediscovery. It’s a part of our big picture approach to both mental health and addiction. By helping clients to understand the biological, mental and social causes of their addiction we offer them a guided path to a healthier, happier and more balanced life. Ranging from just a few sessions a week to a more intensive format, our team will design a personalized program to help you stop the cycle of addiction and start a new beginning.

At Helix Healthcare Group, we look beyond the addiction to address the root causes and create lasting change.

- Jesse Hanson, Clinical Director

Lasting results

Out-patient care offers many advantages over residential treatment. When a client participates in a program and resides overnight at the same facility, they can experience a ‘safety bubble’. For many, this affects their ability to deal with their addiction in the context of their everyday lives. The threat of maladjustment after leaving residential treatment may seriously hinder any prospects for long-term recovery and increase their changing of returning to old, destructive habits.

Less time away

Our programs excel in striking a healthy balance between safety, integrity, and integration. We work closely with our clients to deepen their understanding of their addiction and then practice dealing with triggers in their daily lives. Clients then return to discuss specific challenges with the therapeutic team and address any problems that may arise. In doing so, we teach our clients to live a sober and satisfying life while engaged in their day-to-day activities and relationships.

Lower costs

Not only do our tailor-made solutions enable our clients to remain in the comfort of their own home while getting the treatment they need, our intensive outpatient program is significantly less expensive than residential treatment. Beyond that, our clients benefit from more individual and less group therapy sessions than the any other treatment program in Canada.
