Mental health and addiction treatment in Nova Scotia, Canada.
About Ledgehill for Men
If you or a loved one are suffering from addiction with underlying mental illness or trauma, we provide evidence-based treatment in a peaceful, gender-separate environment.
Many men feel uncomfortable discussing sensitive and emotional topics in a mixed-gender environment. Others find the presence of women a distraction from their treatment. While this option may not be necessary for all men, we are proud to provide this unique gender-specific option to those who need it on their road to recovery.
Through our focus on the inter-relationship between mind, body and spirit, clients learn to follow an integrated path to addiction recovery.
Using powerful tools such as mindfulness techniques, stress and anxiety reduction, and the learning of self-compassion and self-care, we provide the vital experience which allows our clients to heal and make lasting positive changes in their lives.
“You have to go into recovery for you.
It sounds bad, but it’s not: recovery is a selfish process.”

Our treatment facility
Our beautiful and serene location in rural Nova Scotia, Canada, and caring professional staff provide the perfect environment for you or your loved one to receive the treatment they require.
We address chemical addictions, such as alcohol, drugs, and behaviour addictions, such as gambling and sex. It is common to suffer from more than one type of addiction.
It is also common to experience anxiety and/or depression along with addiction, and our programs address these possibilities.
Our Addiction Treatment Program
Our holistic program focuses on helping you or your loved one learn the healthy lifestyle habits that lead to a lasting recovery. These include fitness, nutrition, yoga, enjoying the natural environment and most of all learning to have fun in healthy ways.
We also offer creative space to explore art and music. Our skilled clinical team provides a variety of courses, and clients receive educational programming to support their recovery on various levels.
Beautiful & Secure Environment
Nestled in the rolling hills of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, Ledgehill’s natural setting sets it apart from the distractions and temptations of urban life.
Private and Semi-Private Rooms
We offer private or semi-private rooms with ensuite bathrooms to provide special space for rest and relaxation.
Comprehensive Addiction Therapy
Our clients receive individual and group therapy depending on their specific needs. Our clinical team provides a combination of evidence–based, values–based, and contextual therapies.
Medical & Psychological Consultations
Our male clients have specific medical and psychological needs. The professionals on our team are all highly skilled and provide an atmosphere of support particularly suited for men.
Detox is coordinated by our medical team and supervised by on-site full-time nurses. We take every precaution to ensure this first important stage towards recovery is comfortable and safe.
Delicious Nutritious Meals
In consultation with a nutritionist, our culinary team provides high quality, nourishing meals that meet clients’ specific needs in recovery.
The first three to six months following treatment can be a vulnerable time. Therefore, we create individually tailored recovery plans and maintain contact with our clients to address issues that may lead to relapse.
Our fees are all-inclusive, which means we do not sell additional services to our clients when they come to our centre. The only money you or your loved one will need to bring is for personal expenditures. All of our clients receive the same care and professional level of treatment.
Ledgehill is a private treatment centre that offers many ways to fund recovery, including through your employer benefits program.
One of our admissions counsellors will walk you through our fees and the available payment options.
