New Mental Health and Addictions Treatment Facility in Heart of the City
MONTREAL, April 16, 2018 /CNW/ - Homewood Health is pleased to introduce Homewood du Plateau, a world-class, bilingual inpatient mental health and addictions treatment facility in Montreal.
Known formerly as 360°dtx, Homewood Health acquired 50% of the organization in 2014 and fully acquired the facility late in 2017. With Homewood's backing and over 130 years of clinical experience, it has now become a full-service, bilingual, inpatient treatment centre serving individuals with mental health challenges and substance abuse disorders.
Homewood du Plateau is located in the vibrant Plateau neighbourhood of Montreal and delivers medically-based treatment for mental health, trauma, addiction and concurrent conditions.
"The physicians at Homewood du Plateau are leaders in their fields," says Jagoda Pike, President and CEO of Homewood Health Inc. "They will continue to deliver the tremendous, personal and expert care that 360°dtx patients were accustomed to."
Led by Co-Medical Directors Dr. Warren Steiner and Dr. Ronald Fraser, the clinicians at Homewood du Plateau have won numerous awards for innovation in their clinical work and research. Most are affiliated with McGill University and are extensively involved in community outreach in the areas of mental health and addiction.
"Homewood du Plateau helps those seeking treatment for mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD as well as behavioral and substance addictions alone, or those combined with a mental health condition" said Dr. Warren Steiner, Psychiatrist and Co-Medical Director at Homewood du Plateau. "Clients are cared for by 30 full and part-time addiction and mental health professionals, including psychiatrists and physicians, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists and 24/7 on-site nurses."
Homewood du Plateau will offer medically managed detoxification for a wide variety of substance use disorders including alcohol, opioid, cannabis, stimulant and tranquilizer addictions for those who need it. Clients will be treated with a combination of group and one-on-one therapy, including cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapies with graduating clients accessing aftercare through a Homewood Clinic or through our national network of aftercare professionals, the largest in Canada.
Homewood du Plateau offers a modern facility with state-of-the-art amenities so clients can feel at home and focus on their treatment and recovery. With 16 large private bedrooms, all with personal ensuites, clients at Homewood du Plateau experience the ideal mix of privacy and comfortable shared spaces. The beautiful, modern and fully renovated facility offers a professionally equipped gym, massage therapy rooms, yoga studio, sauna, hot tub, comfortable lounges, library, media room and a large outdoor terrace.
