The subject of the intervention was sent to the GreeneStone Muskoka facility for recovery. The episode can be viewed on the Slice Canada website when available at:

Earlier this year, GreeneStone Muskoka was featured on the season premiere of the second season on August 27, 2012. That episode, as well as a video profile on the GreeneStone Muskoka facility, can be viewed on the Slice Canada website at:

Intervention Canada is a powerful and gripping television series in which people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. The series follows the format of the multiple Emmy-nominated ground-breaking U.S. series. It profiles people whose dependencies on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior have brought them to a point of personal crisis that culminates in an intervention with families and professionals offering assistance. In the latest episode featuring GreeneStone Muskoka, titled “Katie,” Andrew Galloway helps 24-year-old Katie and her mother intervene with Katie’s opiate addiction.

“GreeneStone is proud to be associated with Intervention Canada on the Slice Network in an endeavor that brings much needed awareness to the issue of addiction, as well as the cause of mental illness, in general. One in five people will experience a form of mental illness at some point and most will be reluctant to talk to a co-worker, friend or family member about their struggle, let alone seek treatment. GreeneStone is among a growing number of organizations that have joined the cause to de-stigmatize and address the mental illness crisis head on,” stated Shawn Leon, CEO of GreeneStone Healthcare Corp.

According to Health Officer’s Council of BC, for every $5 spent on drug rehabilitation by the Canadian government, $95 is spent on incarceration of drug users. Substance abuse now costs the Canadian healthcare system an estimated $8 billion annually and the economy an estimated $34 billion. Nearly 90% of the economic cost of substance abuse is due to lost productivity. With these facts considered, GreeneStone has focused on boomers, executives, and professionals as its primary patient stream with the 18-30 year old segment as the secondary stream.
