About Wellbeings - Wellbeings Pain Management and Dependency Clinic

Founder Peggi Shepherd DeGroote

Founder Peggi Shepherd DeGroote

Wellbeings Pain Management & Dependency Clinic was established in 2010. The clinic is unique in Halton Region, offering comprehensive services provided by doctors, pharmacists, technicians and counsellors for people who suffer from chronic pain or dependency issues.

The founder, Peggi Shepherd DeGroote, chose a location in West Burlington as the ideal for providing these highly specialized services to patients from the immediate communities and surrounding areas. Since opening the clinic has helped hundreds of patients to limit the effects of pain or addiction, making possible a happier and healthier life.

The dedicated team of specialists works collaboratively within a “Patient First” approach, developing treatment plans specifically tailored to the individual. Additional off-site treatments enhance and promote healing and recovery. Referrals for those services are provided, which can include chiropractic, massage, nutrition and exercise/physical therapies.

Wellbeings will assist those who have problems arising from pain and/or addiction to access all legally prescribed pain medications and other forms of treatments such as trigger point injections.

Methadone offers one well researched and best practice approach for pain and addiction but it is only one of many options to be considered when developing an individual treatment plan.

Wellbeings is an appointment only clinic with minimal wait times for new patients. Wellbeings opioid dependency services are covered by OHIP. All medical services related to pain management are also covered by OHIP.

If you would like to make a referral, please complete the attached Wellbeings REFERRAL FORM 2016 and fax it to 905-631-1400. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone (905) 631-9355 or click here to send us an email and we will be pleased to assist you.

We will work closely with the primary care physician or specialist and the patient to improve quality of life (QOL).
