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.
