To improve access to care for clients who would benefit from intensive programming for mood and anxiety, trauma and addictions, AIM has been transformed into an intensive day-based service, and temporarily named the Integrated Intensive Ambulatory Service (IIAS).
Currently in its pilot phase, IIAS offers group-based therapy programs for complex clients with a primary diagnosis of a mood and/or anxiety disorder, in addition to a concurrent substance use disorder, trauma, and/or borderline personality disorder. This pilot consists of a four week psychoeducation group focused on skills building, education, recreation, and individual support (4-5 days/week). When the service is fully operational in the fall of 2015 it will include psychiatric assessments.
Referral Required: Yes, a physician referral is required using the CAMH referral form. Please contact Access CAMH at 416-535-8501, and press 2.
