Dr. Ron Fraser Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to Mental Health

360dtx Physician Receives Top Award by the Canadian Psychiatric Association

GUELPH, ON--(Marketwired - November 05, 2015) - Homewood Health is proud to announce that Dr. Ron Fraser, a psychiatrist with partner organization 360ºdtx, received the highest award for clinical achievement given annually to a Canadian psychiatrist of high distinction at the Canadian Psychiatry Association 2015 Annual Conference.

Dr. Fraser was awarded the C.A. Roberts Award for Clinical Leadership for the significant improvements he has brought to patient care by transforming the addictions and borderline personality disorder service at Halifax's Capital District Health Authority. His accomplishments include the development of an integrated, evidence-based model of addictions and mental health care, and the successful implementation of a structured psychotherapy program to treat individuals with borderline personality disorders, a model he first developed at the McGill University Health Centre.

"I am honoured to receive this prestigious award," said Dr. Fraser. "The acknowledgement and support of my efforts is humbling, and I look forward to continuing to develop and implement ways to improve patient care in the areas of mental health and addiction."

Dr. Fraser is a notable authority in addictions and personality disorders, is a psychiatrist with 360ºdtx -- a private addiction treatment center in Montreal, and maintains active clinical practices in both Quebec and Nova Scotia. He is also Director of the Extended Care Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic and the Inpatient Detoxification Service at the McGill University Health Centre, the Clinical Academic Leader for Addiction Prevention and Treatment Services for the Capital District Health Authority in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a member of the Royal College Examination Board in Psychiatry, and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at McGill and at Dalhousie Universities.

"We are excited to have Dr. Fraser working with us," said Jagoda Pike, president and CEO of Homewood Health. "Our successful partnership with 360°dtx has expanded Homewood's already accomplished physician complement, and has supported our ability to provide leading edge models of care for successful and sustained recovery for our patients across the country."
