Manitoba Health, a department of the provincial government, oversees health services. The delivery of services, however, is the responsibility of the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) .

The Regional Health Authorities Act legislation came into force in 1997 and defines the duties and responsibilities of the RHAs and the Minister of Health.

The Winnipeg Health Region does not provide addiction services. For alcohol and drug information and referral, refer to Addictions Foundation of Manitoba in the Manitoba Alcohol & Drug Rehab Services section.

However, information on a special program on a Winnipeg Health Region-sponsored program is available for those with mental health and addictions, called the Co-occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders Initiative CODI.

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 may be for-profit or not-for-profit. Since no distinction between for-profit and not-for-profit is made in, visitors to this website that require additional information should contact the service provider directly.
