Therapy Programs

Start Your New Life Today

Our Therapy Programs

Together in a group setting, residents are able to share their experiences with anxiety and constructively come up with healthy ways to manage daily worries.
Elevate Life endeavors to treat all problem use of substances and out of control compulsive behaviors. Our clinical team work under the theory that the addictive behavior is a by-product of an underlying condition, and that a holistic and therapeutically intensive process is required to enable individuals to heal and live from a more solution-based perspective.
Problem solving, cognitive therapy, spiritualism, health and wellness, community and relationships along with self-esteem elevation are all essential building blocks to re-creating one’s sense of purpose.

Programs of Recovery


Addiction Recovery Program

After the initial intake process and treatment assessments are completed, residents are given a tour and an orientation package which outlines program requirements, rules and a daily schedule of activities. The treatment assessment helps the counselling staff to identify specific issues and challenges that individuals will focus on in their early recovery. READ MORE

PTSD Therapy

PTSD is a unique mental health disorder that causes a number of intrusive and debilitating symptoms that can severely disrupt a person’s life. Consequentially, it requires a unique set of treatment features to address each aspect of the illness.
PTSD treatment at ELEVATE LIFE is centred around education, evaluation and proven medically integrated therapies that provide stability and relief. READ MORE

Neuro-feedback Therapy

Neuro-feedback Therapy is a method of treatment proven to be helpful for those struggling with mental health and addiction issues.
The therapy relies on EEG (electroencephalography) feedback which displays electrical impulse activity in the brain. When electrical activity in the brain can be readily observed a situation is created where real-time “brain-training” can occur. READ MORE
