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 addiction issues.

The founder, Peggi Shepherd DeGroote, chose West Burlington as the ideal location for providing highly specialized services to patients from the immediate and surrounding communities. Since its 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.
