Online Treatment Programs - Admission Info
Westwind Online Programs are offered on a weekly basis. If a client feels they would benefit from increased sessions, the program can be adapted accordingly to suit each client’s individual needs.
Westwind does not require a referral from a medical doctor or psychiatrist. The first step for admission is to complete an intake interview over phone or skype – this also provides opportunity to discuss the program further and answer any questions the client may have.

Secondly, forms to be completed will be emailed to you including a payment agreement, which can be returned to Westwind through email or fax. Once all forms are completed and returned, the client will be free to begin the Online Treatment Program.
Duration of Program
The length that a client will be involved in the Online Treatment Program is typically longer than the length of stay in residential treatment because clients will be dealing with competing life agendas in their home environment. On average, clients will be involved in the Online Treatment Program for six months, and then choose to be involved in our Maintenance Program. Length of involvement in the program will also be dependent on variables such as clients readiness to make change, severity of the problem, comorbidity of other symptoms, and their commitment to the program.
Termination of Services
Notice of termination of the Online Program can be given through an email to the counsellor(s.) If a client is utilizing preauthorized payment and cancellation notice is given, the next payment will be stopped.
