IDT offers four independent phases of group programming for clients with mood and anxiety disorders. These treatment phases incorporate evidenced-based practices including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectal behavioural therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). Morning or afternoon streams are available for all phases of treatment. Psychiatric follow-up is provided in all phases except Phase 2. Each client attending group treatment is seen every one to two weeks by a social worker or nurse, known as a primary clinician. Requests for consultation can also be made within IDT for psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, pharmacy, recreational therapy and peer support.
