Other Treatment Options
Additional services are also available at Ste. Anne’s Hospital. There is a pain management clinic and the Inpatient Stabilization Program for Operational Stress Injuries.
Addresses of Operational Stress Injury (OSI) Clinics
Each clinic has a professional team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses and other specialized clinicians. They develop personalized treatment plans in collaboration with each client. The spouse and close family members can also be involved in the treatment process.
Through specialized treatment, clients address difficulties, develop treatment objectives, find resources and improve their quality of life. While continuing to live in their community, clients attend periodic appointments at the OSI clinic (except for the residential and inpatient stabilization treatment programs).
