Help for Private Drug & Alcohol Rehabs Quebec

We are not a drug or alcohol rehab, but by calling us, you receive help right now with a loved one’s struggles with substance abuse. A referral counsellor will take your call. They will work with you to locate the right private drug and alcohol treatment centre servicing the province of Quebec.

No one can sit by idly and watch a person slowly change and vanish because of an addiction. It can be quite a trying time for parents or spouses to deal with this issue. Most will look into funded Quebec rehab centres for assistance, which is often not readily available. And then do not know where to turn.

Unfortunately, finding help is also an intricate part of this problem. Community centres usually turn out to be an extended process. This situation often causes parents and the person with the addiction to lose hope and give up. But there are other options like affordable private residential drug and alcohol treatment centres servicing Quebec. You can find out more about us here.

Quebec Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres

Tips & Procedures

You might want a Quebec government-subsidized service. It is a good choice in many cases. However, many public facilities will require the person to be drug and alcohol-free several days before admission. This situation is specific to centres that have no detox setup. So it is recommended that you ask the centre about their ability to deliver this step.

If they don’t, a person choosing public access treatment must be able to “stay clean” after detox until a bed is available. This circumstance makes public facilities a bit more difficult for some.

You can talk to your physician or addiction counsellor for a referral. It can have a bearing on wait time.

If you are looking for subsidized treatment, please visit Drugs, Help & Referral or our page on public-access contacts. You can also click on the map for for

Addiction Services for Quebec Residents

Available Services in Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Substance use disorder affects people differently. Its severity level classification is mild, moderate, and severe. For example, someone drinking a 26-ounce of vodka a day who lost their job and family would be a severe case. 

In contrast, one who binge drinks on the weekend but still gets to work on Monday could be a moderate case. Each of these example would need a different level of care. The same goes for Meth users, prescription drug abuse, etc.

Some might need long-term rehabilitation, while others would do fine with an addiction counsellor. Here are some options for Quebec residents.

  • Medical Detox Centres or Regular Detox
  • Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabs (Long and short-term)
  • Outpatient programs (Day or evenings),
  • Addiction Counselling and
  • Coaching (Online or in person)

How to Approach the Subject

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Quebec

People often ask: Should I talk to the person about their usage? Or, How do I get the person to admit a problem?

Too many families end up fighting about it, which only adds to an already tense life situation. How do you talk about addiction and rehab?

These are all good questions and deserve an answer. Although there are no foolproof ways of achieving this, certain guidelines prove to be more successful. We created a series on the topic to help individuals facing this condition. Learn more by following the link “TALKING ABOUT REHAB.”

There are also questions about interventions. An intervention can shake up a lot of emotions, some good, some bad. Family members could plan an intervention.

However, it takes a levelheaded person to guide the session. Being too invested in negative emotions will not work. Someone needs to keep the subject of the intervention on helping the person and away from blame and degradation. You can read more on interventions by following the link on “MORE ON INTERVENTION.”

Getting Help for Yourself

In Quebec, like anywhere else, living with or loving someone with a substance use disorder can be overwhelming. Searching for help for them is often the first order of the day, as it rightfully should be.

But the person searching can often feel isolated, exhausted and powerless. So, it is equally important for them to seek assistance and support. Sharing experiences, discovering coping methods and being with individuals with similar life circumstances can be incredibly valuable.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon groups provide help for family members and friends who are affected by or dealing with a loved one’s addiction. You can find meetings in Quebec by going to their website:

Getting Assistance to Find a Drug and Alcohol Rehab

What to Expect Calling our Line

When you call from Quebec, our referral counsellor will ask questions about the person’s situation. The length of substance misuse, the drug of choice, if the person attempted rehab before, and any medical issues are important data. All these influence the type and length of the program.

Once you agree on a facility, our counsellor will arrange for the facility to call you. When they contact you, within half an hour to an hour, they will answer any other questions you may have. At this point, if all is good, they will arrange admission. If not, please call us so we can suggest other centres. There is no obligation on your part, and our service is free. And we help across Canada, so we can assist wherever you are.
