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

Initially, you will have daily contact with one of our healthcare professionals including 1-2 group counselling sessions and 1-2 individual therapeutic sessions per week. The exact amount and schedule will be determined based on your needs.
I feel like I’m ready to start the program immediately. Are there wait times?
