Finding the correct addiction treatment centre is important. One should consider the person’s philosophy, lifestyle and unique needs when choosing a drug or alcohol rehab in Toronto.
Some people may not need a residential rehab centre. In comparison, others might need long-term rehabilitation. The drug of choice, addiction length, and severity are factors in determining what program is best.
Finally, every Toronto resident can choose public access or private treatment centres. For those wanting funded services, we’ve compiled a small list below and another one on our Ontario page for you to consult.

One can choose a Toronto drug rehab in the private sector. Private facilities are paid-for-services.
Ontario has many good private addiction treatment centres. Many of those are in or close to Toronto. Here are a few within an hour of Toronto.
** Centres that accept insurance.
When using insurance, the prices will vary depending on your deductible and plan coverage. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the centre for more details. Without insurance, the prices are from 13,200 to 25K. The fees specified here are for a month’s stay.
The preferred method for most centres is to ask for full payment upon intake. There are other ways you can pay for a Toronto drug rehab. One would be through payment plans, and some centres offer that possibility. Another is a loan through a company like Medicard, which finances treatments, usually at lower interest. However, some insurance plans do cover addiction treatment. You merely have to communicate with your insurer and the facility you chose to see if there is a possibility for this option.
Not necessarily. The price can be higher because of medical personnel, amenities, or the location and luxury level of the centre. Long-term programs can give better results and are more expensive due to the length. However, a short-term program that is more expensive than another will not necessarily provide better results. Finally, all these factors determine the price of a Toronto drug rehab.
Yes, certain private treatment centres in Toronto offer outpatient treatment options. Many of the public access facilities do. Calling the centre and asking if they provide outpatient treatment programs would be a great way for you to start.
The type of program they deliver is important. An addicted person will do better when they can relate to the centre’s teachings and philosophy. For example, some use cognitive behavioural therapy, while others may use Christian Faith in rehabilitation.
Another qualification one can look for is staff experience. Are the staff composed of people who have successfully recovered from their own addiction? Diplomas are necessary but do not replace life experience and insight into the unique mindset of a person abusing substances.
A well-rounded program will have extracurricular activities. A centre that extends a person’s horizon by experiencing different activities prepares the individual to live drug-free. Most Toronto drug rehab centres have this covered.
A program should have an aftercare support system. Going through a program is not an end-all. Life after treatment may not always be smooth going, and one may require a support network.
Lastly, it is best to have nurses and doctors available if you have a medical situation.
