CANADA ALCOHOL AND DRUG REHAB PROGRAMS
Canadadrugrehab.ca is a free online directory listing of alcohol and drug rehab programs and other addiction-related services located in Canada. If you wish to locate alcohol and drug treatment services in your home community please remember you have two options: (1) government-funded treatment or (2) private treatment.
Government-funded treatment advantages are that there is no cost for outpatient or medical treatment while residential treatment is free or low cost (typically less than $100 a day). The disadvantages of government treatment include: (1) the need of a referral from your family doctor or from a government-funded mental health clinic, (2) wait lists and (3) the division of medical services (detox) and residential services.
The main private treatment advantages are prompt admission, longer treatment episodes, the ability to choose your therapist or treatment centre, no geographical restriction, integrated medical and residential services, etc. The disadvantages, of course, are costs which can range from $50 to $200 per hour for a private practice therapist (depending on their qualifications and experience) or $150 to $500 per day for private residential treatment (depending on qualifications of clinical staff, program amenities, location, etc.). Furthermore, primary residential treatment is typically considerably more expensive than sober living on a per diem basis but about the same when treatment length of stay is considered (primary treatment being 30 to 90 days, sober living 6 months to a year or more).
Canadians that need help getting a family member into a drug rehab program can visit the Find a Drug and Alcohol Interventionist section for further assistance.
A separate section called Specialized Programs has been included that lists alcohol and drug rehab programs limited to certain groups in Canada based on occupation (lawyers, medical professionals, etc.), race (Inuit or First Nations) or designated at-risk populations (pregnant mothers that drink alcohol), etc.
Canada has many excellent online Drug and Alcohol Education and Prevention resources. This section includes general information on drug and alcohol addiction as well as specific information for age groups (adolescents, seniors), gender, injection drug users (HIV/AIDS, methadone, etc.) and the role of law enforcement. Bookstores and seminars for professionals and families are also included in this section.
Also, if you want to quit smoking, the Drug and Alcohol Education and Prevention section has a list of online or community resources.
Recognizing that many who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction often have other addictions, a separate directory for Gambling Addiction Treatment, Eating Disorder Treatment, and Sex Addiction Treatment has been provided.
