Innovative New PTSD and Addiction Treatment Program


Last Door is pleased to announce a sensible and innovative addition to their in-patient treatment programs with the introduction of the integrated NeuroTrophic Stimulation Therapy© Program [NTST]. This state-of-the-art neurophysiological evidence based approach was developed to mitigate side effects and improve outcomes when treating post-traumatic stress disorder, mental health, substance withdrawal and other concurrent disorders.

Veterans, firefighters, paramedics, service personnel and corrections officers suffering with PTSD and Addiction can call 1-888-825-9771 to schedule an assessment to see if they qualify for Last Door’s NTST Program.

Endorsed by Canadian Veterans Advocacy

“The Last Door is an innovative treatment facility with a family environment. I recommend soldiers and veterans who struggle with addiction(s) and PTSD to consider a successful centre like Last Door.”

– Sylvain Chartrand, Director, Canadian Veterans Advocacy
