Public Access & Community Services in London Ontario

Funded Services

A London drug rehab with public access can be a good choice. However, there are wait times for admission. There are also certain criteria that you must take into consideration.

Calling different facilities and inquiring about their detox or arrangements for detox is important. This point is crucial, specifically when a person has difficulty “staying clean” for any amount of time. When the facility doesn’t provide service and has no coordination with a detox, a person might get out of detox with no beds available in the centre.

It is a problem because most centres will ask a person to be substance-free several days before admission, making this harder on heavy users. If the person has reverted, their admission is forfeited.

Guidance to the Right Private Centres

For London Ontario

Finding the appropriate treatment centre should be your main interest. There are different approaches, treatment plans and settings for treatment in London like anywhere else. Following are the most common treatment plans and what they entail when seeking assistance in Ontario.

  • Detox is the first step in rehabilitation when a person stops using their substance.
  • Medically assisted detox, detoxing from alcohol and certain other drugs, can be complicated and physically demanding. Also a person might have a medical situation that may put their life at risk.
  • Residential Rehabs are long and short-term live-in treatments. A short-term program is between 21 and 30 days long, while a long-term program can be anywhere from a few months to a year. Most people with a longstanding addiction will need long-term treatment.
  • Outpatient programs are day or evening services. Most day or evening programs have an intensive schedule, but the person stays home. Depending on the case, it can be a few months to a few years.
  • Addiction counselling and coaching are mostly for lighter cases and, in most cases, not a heavy schedule.

To start, a person should get an assessment to determine the level of care needed. You will find assessment services on this page or by calling a private rehab. Most will start with an assessment.

What to Look For

You should investigate the facility and the approach they use. As above, the extent of the addiction should dictate the length of the program. But the approach the centre uses and their aftercare are both important.

Most rehabs in London base their program on the 12-step approach, and many individuals have found sobriety with this method. However, not everyone can relate to it. Finding the treatment approach best suited to the person requires a knowledge of the individual’s mindset and preferences. For example, one can feel very comfortable in a large group while another does not.

Finally, the expense is crucial when choosing a residential treatment facility. Considering the family’s income and exploring cost-effective private treatment options is essential. Also, some facilities accept insurance coverage, which can be a definite asset for some families in London, Ontario.
