The institution is elegantly situated in large private grounds, on banks of Lake Ontario, within twenty miles of Toronto and Hamilton, with every appointment and appliance for treating these classes of cases.
Each case comes under the direct personal care of the resident physician. Experience shows that a large proportion of these cases are curable, and all are benefitted from the application of exact hygienic and scientific measures.
This institution is founded on the well-recognized fact that inebriety is a disease and curable, and in every case what essentially is required is rest, change of thought and living, with the many other benefits outside of treatment incidental to institution life.
In our booklet which we place before you, let it be distinctly understood that we want to plainly show the benefits of our institution, not to the detriment of others established for the same purpose, but that it stands alone among them in its all-prevading quality of excellence for treatment of such cases, in that it is a health resort indeed, having every natural advantage of position, grounds, homelike comforts, and absolutely fitted to its important missiona cheery, yet restful retreat, possessing every attraction for repose and recuperation, every necessary means for the treatment of the ailing, and an abundance of objects of interest and pastimes for the well.
We would especially emphasize the importance of moral tonics on our patients. All are put on their honor, and no restrictions are placed upon them. They are at perfect liberty to come and go as they please, and under these circumstances a man taking liquor clandestinely would find himself regarded as a traitor to his trust.
The large majority of our patients are sent by physicians in all parts of the continent, which conclusively shows that no element of quackery can exist. All our patients are treated as ladies or gentlemen who are afflicted with a curable diseasewhich is a misfortune, not necessarily a faultand not as people who have offended against society’s laws.
The buildings are cheerful, roomy and commodious, fitted for this purpose, and completely equipped. Every facility is present for the study and treatment of such chronic and convalescent conditions as are difficult to treat at home.
Patients consult and are referred here by their own physicians. A regulated, wholesome and nutritious dietary with everything in season is furnished.
We have hundreds of unsolicited testimonials from ex-patients, of which we publish a few. Any inquiries will cheerfully be answered on application, promptly, and scale of charges with other information sent on addressing
