Treating Addiction and PTSD/Operational Stress Injury

Clinique Nouveau Départ – EHN Canada’s intensive concurrent treatment program is designed exclusively for members of the Canadian Armed Forces, veterans, the RCMP and first responders. This program targets comorbid addiction, PTSD, trauma and stress, as well as additional mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety.

How we can help you

Our post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment program at Clinique Nouveau Départ – EHN Canada is one of the only programs of its kind in the Greater Montreal area. The PTSD program helps people with post-traumatic stress manage their symptoms without using any substances.

Before the beginning of every treatment, the Clinique Nouveau Départ team carefully assesses:

  • Your substance use habits
  • Your risk for withdrawal
  • Different co-occurring physical, emotional and behavioural conditions
  • Factors that could help or hinder your recovery

Through its medical approach, Clinique Nouveau Départ – EHN Canada may sometimes use medication in addition to psychotherapy for the treatment of people with addictions problems, in cases of acute withdrawal as well as during the post-withdrawal period (prolonged withdrawal or maintenance phase).

Two program types are available

For the concurrent treatment (addiction and PTSD), Clinique Nouveau Départ – EHN Canada offers its patients follow-up extending over a period of up to twelve months, with an emphasis on post-treatment follow-up.

During this intensive program, you’ll learn to:

  • Understand your addiction as a disease
  • Understand how your addiction impacts your life and the people around you
  • Develop an abstinence and relapse-prevention plan
  • Manage relapse triggers and warning signs (stress, craving, etc.)

Following this intensive period, follow-up sessions, both group and individual, are offered on a weekly outpatient basis. The groups offered are based on the principles of relapse prevention and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and allow patients to gain the skills needed to reintegrate their respective communities.

Throughout the entire treatment period, you will benefit not only from counselling, but also from medical monitoring, and, when necessary, medication-assisted treatment. You will also benefit from random toxicology screening.
