OVERVIEW

Statistics Canada estimates there are 277,007 residents in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region (Source: Statistics Canada, 2006 census). There are five local service networks (MRCs) in this region: Lac-Saint-Jean-Est, Le Domaine-du-Roy, Le Fjord-du-Saguenay, Maria-Chapdelaine, and Saguenay (Ville). The largest city in this region, Saguenay, was formed in February 2002 by the merger of Chicoutimi, Jonquiere, La Baie, Laterriere, Lac-Kenogami, Shipshaw and part of Tremblay.

A map (*) of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region shows the local service networks (MRCs in French) in green and the health and social services centres (Municipalite locale exercant certaines competences de MRC in French) highlighted in pink. A health and social services centre is a hub where the residents of the local service network have access to specialized medical and social services.

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.

How to search in this section:

1. This section is listed alphabetically by municipality. Scroll down to the name of the municipality or use the quick links at the top of the page
2. to find a provider by name (company name or professional’s last name) click the Control (Ctrl) key and, while holding it down, click the ‘F’ key
3. A “Find” window will pop up. In the space type in the name, avoiding use of first name or other words that could narrow down your search too far

In no event shall canadadrugrehab.ca be liable for any decision or action taken in reliance on information provided by this referral service.
