Mental health and addiction treatment in Nova Scotia, Canada.

About Ledgehill
for Women

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.

Women often take on the work required to run a household, raise a family, and manage a workplace. Unfortunately, these responsibilities mean taking on additional stress, pressure, and trauma that can lead to a reliance on substances.

In addition, substance use disorders for many women stem from childhood abuse that often involved a male aggressor.

We provide a safe space for women to explore shared issues around gender bias, abuse, and domestic violence in the company of other women.

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 just want the pain to stop, and you don’t think you’re capable of making it stop.”

what we

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.

Delicious Nutritious Meals
