At Metamorphosis, all clients receive 2 individual psychotherapy sessions PER WEEK, administrated by a Master’s level registered therapist.  Plus a one on one counseling session with an addictions counselor.  What distinguishes their roles is the difference in education, training, experience and professional accountability. A therapist enables you to tackle deep trauma and unresolved issues that fuel your addiction.  A counsellor helps you go through your work book and  handle emotional distress during your recovery process with healthy habits on a daily/weekly basis.  Besides individual therapy sessions, all clients have 24/7, unlimited access to registered Addiction Counsellors for support and mentoring

Our residential treatment is a minimum of 4 weeks

We also offer 6, 8 or 12 weeks treatment, if need be. Anything beyond that is based on the specific needs of the individual.  These needs will be assessed by our clinical team and will be discussed with the client.
