OVERVIEW

The Assiniboine Region covers an area of 32,134 square kilometres, expanding from the northwestern point of the Saskatchewan border in the Rural Municipality of Shellmouth-Bolton near the community of Russell, continuing down the Saskatchewan border where it meets the USA border, and extends south-east to the Rural Municipality of South Norfolk near Treherne, and north to the Rural Municipality of Glenella in the Neepawa area. The new Region continues to include Riding Mountain National Park. Brandon, the major centre servicing the Assiniboine Regional Health Authority is within 30-90 minutes of most communities in the Region. The towns at the eastern end of the Region are within 90 minutes of the city of Winnipeg. Russell, located at the northwestern point of the Region, is approximately 30 minutes from the city of Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Both the Trans Canada and Yellowhead Highway are major transportation corridors within the Region.

The majority of the citizens are English descendants. There is also a large Ukrainian population. Within the Region there are seven First Nation Communities, predominately found in the northern part of the Region and twenty-eight Hutterite Colonies disbursed throughout the Region. Twenty percent of the population is aged 65 years and older.

ALCOHOL AND DRUG REHAB PROGRAMS BY MUNICIPALITY

Type of Service

Each listing here provides alcohol and drug treatment services that are either medical, outpatient or residential:

Due to the lack of available detoxification services, you may have to travel outside of your municipality for assistance.

If you require residential alcohol and drug rehab, you may need to travel outside of your municipality to find a program that provides the right combination of length of stay, treatment philosophy, suitable peer group, staff training, etc. Wait lists are also common so looking outside of your region may help you locate a program with a shorter waitlist.

Since outpatient visits are typically provided on an ongoing basis for a few hours each week, try to find a service provider that is within a reasonable driving distance from your home community.

Source of Funding

Providers may be government-funded, government-subsidized or privately-funded (fee for service):

Government-funded programs typically have either the provincial ministry of health or local health authority somewhere in name of the organization. Also, the vast majority of hospitals in Canada are government-funded.

Government-subsidized providers receive major funding from the government in addition to donations and other revenue streams such as thrift stores (Salvation Army is an example). For the most part, government-subsidized programs are typically non-governmental organizations with an independent management team and board of directors.

Privately-funded providers include physicians in private practice even though under Canada’s universal health care policy, the government is billed for services rendered to individual Canadians. Although some privately-funded drug and alcohol rehab services exist in Canada, the vast majority are either government-funded or government-subsidized. Please note that privately-funded providers listed in canadadrugrehab.ca may be for-profit or not-for-profit. Since no distinction between for-profit and not-for-profit is made in canadadrugrehab.ca, visitors to this website that require additional information should contact the service provider directly.
