phased approach: early recovery, concurrent disorders skills and transition to community
specialty programming: addictions and eating disorders, first stage trauma, interpersonal and cognitive impairment groups
The Outpatient Concurrent Addiction Treatment (OCAT) Service specializes in delivering group therapy treatment to patients experiencing concurrent addiction and mental illness concerns.
This group-based service operates on a core phased approach beginning with early recovery, followed by concurrent disorders skills and a transition to the community group. Additionally the service offers some specialty programming including addictions and eating disorders, first stage trauma, interpersonal, and cognitive impairment groups. Specialty groups are accessed through participation in the core phased programming on an as needed basis.
For information or to access to OCAT, please contact Access CAMH, the centralized intake service at CAMH. The first appointment will be a comprehensive concurrent addiction assessment and then referral to the group.
