Two ways to obtain addiction services
- Are you worried about your substance, gambling or Internet habits? Do you want more information? Contact your local CLSC, where a caseworker will assess your situation and needs and refer you to the appropriate services.
- Once you have recognized that you have a substance, gambling or Internet problem and that you want help, you can call the centralized addictions intake desk. Steps will be taken quickly to register you and refer you to the services and facility closest to you.
Intake, assessment and referral - specialized addiction services
You will be greeted warmly and without judgement by an addictions specialist— a professional whose job it is to listen to you. They will take the time to assess your situation and needs so they can refer you to the appropriate services.
Overview of our services
Specialized outpatient addiction services
The person is encouraged to reflect on their alcohol or drug habits, and on the consequences on their health, social functioning and other spheres.
Gambling and compulsive buying
This component of the adult program is for people aged 18 and over with a gambling or compulsive buying problem. The person is encouraged to reflect on their perceptions and behaviours related to gambling and spending, and on the consequences for them and their loved ones.
Inpatient detox and rehabilitation
This intensive program is open to the population of the Montérégie region and to the English-speaking population of Montréal. Our centres are located in Saint‑Hubert (19 beds for French-speaking users from the Montérégie region) and in Saint-Philippe (24 beds for English-speaking users from the Montérégie region and Montréal).
For many people, detox is the first step toward change. Whenever anyone quits drinking, drugs or gambling, this creates an imbalance that causes physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. The program’s medical professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists) and social workers support the person throughout the withdrawal process to make sure it happens safely. This compassionate approach gives the person the tools they need to then continue their recovery in the outpatient services provided at our various facilities.
Opioid substitution therapy (e.g., narcotics, heroin, Fentanyl, Dilaudid, etc.)
Opioid substitution therapy is for people addicted to street opioids or prescription narcotics (heroin, Dilaudid, OxyContin, morphine, Fentanyl, etc.). The goal of the services is to improve the health and quality of life of the user and their family. Medications are administered (buprenorphine/naloxone, methadone) to significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms and limit the petty crimes associated with opioid use. These services are available at select facilities.
Contact the centralized intake desk for more information about the services available to people with an opioid addiction.
Internet addiction - Adults
Do you feel compelled to spend most of your day at your computer? Does the time you spend on the Internet or playing video games affect your relationships, projects, school or work? If so, you may have an Internet addiction.
The psychosocial worker at your local CLSC can help you reflect on your Internet use, assess your needs, and provide solutions tailored to your situation.
Family support services
When a person has a drinking, drug, gambling or Internet problem, this has a direct impact on their loved ones, whether immediate family member (parents, siblings, spouse, child over age 18) or any other person who has a significant relationship with the addict. An addict’s friends and family members can obtain support even if the addict decides not to seek treatment themselves. Loved ones receive personalized support aimed at improving their sense of well-being and the quality of their relationship with the person with the addiction problem. They can also decide to play a role in the addict’s rehabilitation process.
Social and professional reintegration
The specialized addiction services also provide social and professional reintegration services to anyone in need. Throughout the rehabilitation process, our professionals recommend techniques and activities for improving living conditions.
