Comprehensive Assessments

Built on the foundation of Homewood Health’s 134-year medical and clinical legacy as Canada’s leader in mental health and addiction, The Residence offers fully individualized treatment plans delivered by medical and clinical professionals who are dedicated to The Residence clients. Upon arrival, each client participates in a comprehensive assessment that becomes the basis of a personalized treatment plan that will guide the client’s stay with us. As part of this assessment, pharmacogenetic testing is done using Pillcheck. All treatment plans include input from the client’s family members when applicable.

Dedicated Team

Each client at The Residence is treated by a dedicated interdisciplinary team of professionals led by our full-time Chief of Psychiatry and Program Director. Our team includes 24/7 nursing staff, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, addiction counsellors and recreation therapists.

Specialized Treatment

The Residence is at the forefront of treatment innovation, working closely with the Homewood Research Institute to develop and apply new, evidence-based approaches to mental health and addiction treatment.

Our team treats psychiatric and addiction conditions including: trauma/PTSD, severe depression, anxiety disorders including OCD, substance and behavioural addictions (gambling, sexual, gaming, internet), ADHD and personality disorders.

As The Residence and the entire Homewood Health Campus is a completely smoke-free and tobacco-free property, our holistic model of care includes supporting the treatment of nicotine dependency for each Client as needed.


Since each client’s treatment plan and program is individualized to their needs, each day can look quite different. Some of the commonalities for each client include the daily combination of both one-on-one and group therapy with addition of Wellness, Grounding and Horticulture, Art and Music Therapies. On average, an individual receives two individual therapy sessions and three to four group sessions each day.

In addition to therapy sessions, The Residence offers a very unique, holistic approach to recovery including culinary groups with our Red Seal Chef, on-campus trail walks, yoga classes, 12-step meetings, sports and fitness, movie nights, bicycling trips and importantly, enough down-time to allow the brain to absorb and recover.
