Sage Health Centre offers a medically supervised intensive, abstinence based, residential addictions treatment program.

Sage Health Centre medical and clinical staff are well versed in providing comprehensive medical and clinical care for clients who are recovering from addictions as well as treating concurrent disorders such as depression, anxiety and other mental health issues; chronic pain and other medical issues such as diabetes, hypertension, eating discorders; emotional issues due to historical or current trauma, PTSD, grief and loss; and process addictions.  

Our telephone intake screen that includes a review of the client’s medical history, prescription medications and substance use history reduces paperwork and facilitates timely referrals to detox if required prior to entering treatment or direct admission into the program.

  • Clients are required to abstain from mood altering substance for a minimum of five days prior to intake. Detoxification services prior to treatment can be arranged at our local detox facility no additional charge.
  • Clients submit to urinalysis screens for the presence of alcohol/drugs that are conducted at intake and randomly throughout the treatment program.
