Common Questions and Answers

How long is the program and what is the time commitment once I'm enrolled?

The EMS program is intended to function over the course of a year. Initially there will be daily contact with one of our healthcare professionals and the initial programming will also include 1-2 group counselling sessions and 1-2 individual therapeutic sessions per week. The precise amount and timing will be determined based on individual client needs.

I feel like I'm ready to start the program immediately. Are there wait times?

The EMS program works through a continuous intake process, so clients can begin treatment as soon as they are ready.

What steps do I need to take to enrol in the program?

If you are interested in being enrolled in the program simply contact the program coordinator and a meeting will be organized immediately for an entry interview. During this session an intake counsellor will gather all of the information required in order to facilitate a safe and healthy beginning to the recovery process.

I am a friend of someone I think needs help. What can I do to assist or support this person?

The best thing to do is tell the friend or loved one about the program and to have them contact the intake counsellor directly in order to discuss their treatment options in confidence. A pamphlet explaining the logistics of the program is available or alternatively the individual can be directed to the website.

Does EMS provide support to the loved ones/family members of the client enrolled?

EMS offers a comprehensive treatment program and as such family members looking for support or information are welcome to be involved in the recovery process. The level of involvement will be determined on a case by case basis and is at the complete discretion of the client.

Is it expensive?

The cost for one year of treatment will be similar to one month in a residential facility.
