Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses
The Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses (PEPP-OXFORD) at the Woodstock Hospital is dedicated to the assessment and treatment of individuals who are experiencing their first episode of psychosis. Treatment consists of safe and effective second-generation antipsychotic medications and a number of psychological interventions delivered within a comprehensive case management model. The program is committed to working in partnership with client's families and whenever possible, assessment and treatment is provided without admission to the hospital. You may contact (PEPP-Oxford) at 519-421-4223 for further information.
Eating Disorder Program for Youth
This program offers service to individuals between the ages of 12 and 18 who are trying to cope with an eating disorder. A physician, family member, school, other community agencies or the individual may initiate a referral to the Eating Disorders Outreach Program themselves. Where the primary presenting issue is an eating disorder, the client may begin the process by contacting the intake secretary at 519-421-4223. For individuals who are assessed as requiring more intensive services, an outreach worker will facilitate linkages to the Eating Disorders Program at the London Health Sciences Centre.
