Is this inpatient program the right choice for me?

Seeking more intensive support for a mental health or addiction concern can feel like a big step. However, giving yourself permission to invest in your recovery can turn in to one of the most rewarding and positive changes you make in your life. In our newly refurbished 42 bed inpatient unit, you will have 24-hour nursing support, and access to our multidisciplinary team including consultant psychiatrists and addictions specialists, nurses, exercise physiologists, social workers, psychologists and psychotherapists.

Our inpatient programs provide a comprehensive range of therapeutic groups and activities which are tailored into two streams, one focusing on recovery in mental health, and one focussing on recovery in addiction.
