About Pine River Institute:
Pine River Institute (PRI) is a co-ed, residential treatment centre and outdoor leadership experience for youth aged 13 to 19 with mental health issues, specifically related to substance abuse. PRI addresses the issues of chemical dependency, mental health problems, family stress, addiction, and promotes all-round development. Most youth are from Ontario, with about half from the GTA. PRI serves 35 youth each year, with a waiting list of nearly 200 youth.
PRI offers four phases of care: Outdoor Leadership Experience, Residence, Transition, and Aftercare. The staff-to-student ratio is 1:4. Staff is comprised of experienced professionals including psychologists, physicians, addiction specialists, therapists, researchers and educators. Parents can participate in parent and family group programs.
The Ontario Ministries of Health and Education covers most costs of treatment for Ontario students for up to 29 beds at any time. These Ontario families must pay a fee of $650/month to cover costs not covered by the government. PRI also welcomes families from outside of Ontario and Canada. For these families the fee is $448/day. The Pine River Foundation raises funds on behalf of PRI.
