ABOUT THE NEWLY INSTITUTE

We believe that mental health treatment is in drastic need of a paradigm shift, and our practice was founded to provide long-lasting change within this industry, our community, and with our patients.

The Newly Institute aims to be Canada’s largest operator of the most advanced network of medically assisted psychotherapy clinics and Canada’s only medically assisted Intense Outpatient Programs.

WHAT YOU WILL DO

The Social Worker (SW) will be responsible for intakes, case management, group facilitation and therapy. Using a bio-psycho-social-spiritual treatment model in combination with medical-assisted therapies, clients may overcome deeply embedded traumas that
