Bellwood Launches New Dynamic Addiction Resource Web Site

February 11, 2010

(Toronto, ON September 21, 2009) Bellwood Health Services is pleased to announce the launching of its new interactive website, designed to help users learn about addiction and find treatment and support resources. Bellwood believes that understanding more about addictions is an important step towards recovery. This new website is an easy to navigate resource tool, providing numerous links, articles, books, and videos relating to addiction treatment, recovery, and special events.

The site also highlights Bellwoods quality treatment programs and services, including its evidence-based treatment approach and outcomes, its rich history, and its experienced staff.

Addiction can affect individuals in any situation and Bellwoods new website provides treatment information, education, and resources designed specifically for:

Individuals seeking treatment
Family members and friends
Healthcare professionals

A number of interactive elements on the site, including self-assessment tools, are designed to help users who might be apprehensive about speaking with someone about a problem. Laura Bhoi, President of Bellwood Health Services, explains that for many people, physically stepping into a treatment facility can be very daunting: Bellwoods website will serve as a virtual bridge towards recovery. By visiting our site, individuals can enter the informational and emotional realm of recovery before physically entering treatment. Our hope is that our new site will help encourage individuals to reach out for help and take the first steps towards recovery.

Bellwood is celebrating its 25th year of serving Canadians with quality addiction treatment. The late Dr. Gordon Bell and his daughter Linda Bell, opened the Bellwood doors in Toronto in 1984, and have been working with individuals and families who are experiencing problems with alcohol and drugs, sex, gambling, eating disorders, and PTSD/trauma and addictions.
