They have experience and will work with you to locate the right private centre servicing Montreal. If you are looking for a private drug rehab in Montreal but getting nowhere, call us today!

You might be looking for a public access recovery service in Montreal. It can be a good choice depending on the severity of substance use disorder. Some funded centres will require the person to be substance-free several days before admission.
This admission condition is specific to rehabs that are not set up for detox. What this means is that the person must remain sober after detox until a bed is made available in the chosen centre. It also entails that a detox facility must be found and gone through before the person’s admission.
Sometimes, and in certain areas, an individual can get admitted faster with a referral from a physician or an addiction counsellor. So please talk with your family doctor about this possibility in your region. For public facilities, you can find important contact information here or visit our Quebec Funded page for a listing.
Options depend on the drug of choice, addiction length, severity and medical condition. You can learn more about the different approaches and rehab types by visiting “MORE ON TREATMENTS.”
Medical detox may be unnecessary in most cases. But detoxing from alcohol and certain other drugs may require this step.
There are 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day residential programs; some can be a year or two.
Recommended for people who still function in everyday affairs.
If you choose to call our line in Montreal, here is what will happen. Our referral counsellor will assess the substance use disorder over the phone. They will ask questions on the drug of choice, the length of the addiction, whether or not the person did a rehab before and any medical condition that could complicate the process.
From your answers, they will determine the level of addiction and be able to guide you to the appropriate help. They will suggest recovery programs, and with your consent, they will have the facility call you.
Our service is free and with no obligation on your part, we also service all of Quebec. We do not represent any particular facility, so we have no bias. We work for you and have your best interest at heart. If the chosen service doesn’t work out, another one can be suggested and contacted. You can call for help at any time.
Many families in Montreal have difficulties with a loved one with addiction. Getting someone to see the problem can be arduous. Arguments and heated discussions do occur with no results. It can be very frustrating and can generate sleepless nights and anxious days.
There are better ways to tackle the subject. In light of this, we’ve developed a series about interventions. You can read more on this by following the link “talking about rehab.” Feel free to explore the series.
Unfortunately, addiction can generate a lot of turmoil. Families in Montreal, as anywhere else, can be overwhelmed because of this situation. Feeling despair, hopeless, and unable to believe that things can ever change is often common.
You should consider seeking help and support for yourself and those around you. The Al-Anon/Alatenn and Na-Anon Groups help families better deal with the situation.
Members share their own experiences, strengths, and hopes with each other. Having others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation, is what you’ll find.

Not everyone with a substance abuse problem needs a residential drug or alcohol treatment centre. The degree of addiction will determine what option is best suited for the person. As mentioned above, addiction counselling up to long-term rehab is available.
When calling a rehab in Montreal, ask if they provide detox in-house so you can prepare accordingly. Also, the counsellor who answers your call will assess the addiction and what treatment plan is best for the person.
If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to call. We help across Canada.
