Who is Wagon For?

Wagon is an online treatment program created for those suffering from addiction and substance use disorders. Using a combination of video counselling and recovery planning in our Wagon app, our programs are designed for those who can’t access addiction treatment in-person. Whether you live in a small community, have a busy schedule or work shifts, Wagon can provide you with high-quality treatment for substance use disorders at home.

Personalized Recovery Plan

The Wagon app is a digital recovery plan created specifically for you that can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Working with a counsellor, you’ll design a plan that will set you on the path to wellness. You can set custom reminders, log your triggers and feelings and create your own gratitude list.

You’ll spend a few minutes each day logging goals, feelings, triggers, and more. You’ll know exactly what you need to do each day to achieve your sobriety goals. And you won’t be doing it alone; your counsellor will follow your progress and suggest strategies to help you move forward during short weekly coaching sessions.

Video Counselling Programs

The Wagon app is meant to be paired with our online addiction treatment programs. We offer individual therapy, group therapy, recovery coaching and an intensive outpatient program, run by experience addiction counsellors. We use a safe and secure video counselling platform that’s easy to use. We’ll schedule your appointment, and all you have to do is click the link sent to your email.

Access Anywhere, Anytime

You need your recovery plan everywhere you go. That’s why Wagon is available whether you’re online or offline, at any time of the day. Set up your plan with your counsellor, download the app on you iOS or Android phone, and start accomplishing your goals right away.

You can attend your video counselling session by phone, tablet or computer. This means that Wagon is especially suited for those who cannot attend in-person therapy. Whether you’re travelling for work or you live in a remote community, you’ll always have access to your treatment program.

Our Programs

Wagon Counselling

If you’re ready to explore your relationship with drugs and alcohol, or if you need some support during your recovery journey, our experienced counsellors provide individual video therapy sessions.

Wagon Aftercare

Wagon Aftercare is perfect for those who have completed a treatment program and are returning home to communities without an aftercare option. Our weekly online group therapy sessions will provide you with the support and interaction you need to help you throughout your first year of sobriety.

Wagon Coaching

If you need some help learning to follow your recovery plan Wagon Coaching might be right for you. Each week, you’ll have a 15 or 30-minute online session with your counsellor to review your progress and create strategies to complete your plan and achieve balance in your life.

Intensive Outpatient Program

An online Intensive Outpatient Program is a great alternative for those who cannot or don’t need to attend a residential treatment centre. This three-month program provides nine hours of individual therapy, group therapy and psycho-education via video each week.

Wagon Stories

Tim C.

Ontario

“Wagon provides me with a daily recap of my recovery efforts. Especially useful during hectic periods, Wagon requires a daily inventory of not only my material efforts, but also my spiritual and emotional accounting. Wagon’s best feature might be the ability to allow my counsellor access to my efforts, spotting trends that I might not have noticed and offering guidance as needed. It takes a village…”

Chris F.

Alberta

“My introduction and subsequent use of Wagon was exactly what I needed in early recovery. From the daily sobriety counter to the daily, weekly and monthly task checklists. The accountability was a welcomed addition in my life.”

Shelbi Snodgrass

B.A. Psychology, Alberta

“Wagon is improving the quality of life of my clients. It’s an excellent tool to build accountability, awareness and overall personal balance. Wagon allows clients to work closely with a counsellor, and piece together for themselves the holistic aspects of recovery while they discover triggers, and practice appropriate coping mechanisms. I’ve personally experienced the fluid therapeutic relationship Wagon promotes, and have seen this translate into deeper levels of vulnerability in group sessions with peers.”

Michael P.

Ontario

“Wagon gives me the ability to track and monitor the most important elements of my recovery. Although I have several years of sobriety, I have never had the ability to see what parts of my program are being neglected the way I do with Wagon. In an instant, I can assess where I have been slipping over the previous week and get back on track. If I have been having a bad day or two the answer is usually waiting for me when I get back ‘on the Wagon’.”

For Clinicians

If you’re a clinician or healthcare provider that’s interested in offering Wagon to your clients, there are a few options. We are happy to accommodate referrals into the programs and are even able to create custom programs for large organizations. Alternatively, we offer our software for purchase through a Vendor of Record agreement with OTN.
