Detox & Outpatient Facilities in Ontario for Opiate Addiction

Posted by on Sep 30, 2014 in Addiction Treatment Help, Blog, Opioid/Heroin Addiction | 0 comments

Brampton-Mississauga is an area in Ontario that we receive calls regularly about opiate abuse.

A sister, Amy, living in the area called for her 29-year-old brother, Will*, who uses 80 mg of Oxycontin regularly. Wanted to know where she could help him get into a facility for withdrawal.

Will wanted to keep working and Amy wanted to know what outpatient programs were available to him. Because this is Will’s second relapse, we thought it might be a good idea for Will to have his drug and alcohol counsellor refer him to a residential program. He would be wait-listed for 6-12 weeks before he got into a program.

We recommended the following facilities and resources for Will & Amy’s situation:
