Before Treatment Begins
To understand what treatment might be most effective for you, CAMH clinicians will meet with you and ask you questions about your current experience and history of treatment. For some patients, this initial assessment will take place in the emergency department, before being admitted to the hospital.
Working Together for Your Recovery
A Teaching & Research Hospital
Along with providing your care, CAMH also acts as a teaching and research hospital, providing training to the next generation of mental health professionals and actively seeking discoveries to advance the treatment, recovery and understanding of mental illness, including addictions. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please speak to a member of your primary treatment team.
Cost of Treatment
If you are a resident of Ontario, your treatment at CAMH is likely covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. Please bring your OHIP card and any private health insurance information.
